MARTIN, Tenn.-The 45th annual Spring College rodeo kicked off Thursday night at UT Martin.

The three-day event is a showcase of young talent and serves as a platform for the upcoming College National Finals Rodeo in Wyoming.

College athletes, both men and women, from throughout the southeast are competing.

"It's just sad what we've all grown up doing, it's like we're one big family and we just like it, it's so exilerating, really gets your blood pumping and it's just a lot of fun something we've grown up doing, it's like a lifestyle," said Nealy Dalton, a Freshman on the UT Martin Rodeo Team.

The rodeo begins each night at 7:30. For more information head to the "Seen on 7" section of wbbjtv.com.
