Broc Cresta, a California steer roper and rising star on the rodeo circuit, who ranked 12th in the world as a heeler in team roping, was found dead Saturday in his trailer at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo in Wyoming. He was 25.
Cresta, the son of an expert steer wrestler from Santa Rosa, Calif., had competed Friday in the prestigious Cheyenne event, held annually since 1897. His body was discovered by his girlfriend, champion barrel racer Brittany Pozzi, when she tried to awaken him Saturday morning, said his father, Daniel.
