Lamar Community College sophomore Carter Coble of North Platte, NE received the Levi Wisness Award from the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association for the current academic year. Named after Wisness, a student director for the Central Rocky Mountain Region and 2003 NIRA steer wrestler from the University of Wyoming who died of cancer, it exemplifies a “nothin’ but try” attitude. Coble was born with Perthes Disease which limits the blood supply to the ball joint in the hip and causes it deteriorate. In spite of walking with a limp, several surgeries and not being able to ride horses for a long period of time, he has had the determination to follow his passion of steer wrestling. Coble won the Central Rocky Mountain Region and qualified for his first College National Finals Rodeo in 2011. He is completing his Associate of General Studies in Agriculture (Transfer). “Carter’s determination to succeed is evident in everything he does,” commented LCC Rodeo Coach Fred Sherwood, “I expect him do well this spring.”
