Rodeo announcer Andy Seiler is living the dream. And this year that dream included joining forces with Randy Corley to announce the 83rd edition of the Caldwell Night Rodeo.
Seiler considers it a privilege to work with the 2017 Rodeo Hall of Fame inductee.
“Randy is a legend in the business of rodeo. Any time I can work with someone who is at the top of the business, I consider it to be an honor and a privilege.”
Seiler grew up wanting to be a rodeo cowboy. So he spent countless hours practicing on a roping dummy with the goal of becoming a champion roper. He met that goal, earning the title of National High School Champion Tie-Down Roper, and then went on to become a three-time College National Finals qualifier. While attending Troy University as a broadcast journalism major, Seiler competed in a number of small rodeos in the Southeast, using his rodeo savvy to announce amateur rodeos when he wasn’t competing. His new goal was becoming a PRCA announcer. After college graduation, he combined his broadcast and rodeo skills to make that goal happen, traveling the country to announce at PRCA events throughout the United States.
Seiler loves to talk rodeo and it shows. Highly esteemed rodeo announcer Boyd Polhamus has labeled Seiler, who works with RodeoHouston, “an up-and-coming voice of professional rodeo.” For Seiler, it’s not only about announcing the rodeo events. It’s important to him that rodeo fans, young and old, are having a good time.
“I’m a big fan of rodeo and I couldn’t be more excited about my first year at Caldwell Night Rodeo. Being in a place with that many other people excited about the sport of rodeo is great.”
