RodeoChat: Derek, how did you get into bull riding?
Derek McCormack: I had a few family members that rode bulls and I always wanted to be just like them.
RodeoChat: Out of all the people that rodeo bulls in your family.. Who pushed you the most to get on bulls & help you out during hard times?
Derek McCormack: My dad was always there when the going got tough. He always knew just what to say to make me try harder.
RodeoChat: Its always great to have someone push you to the limit & be there for you at your lowest point.
Derek McCormack: That’s what family is all about. I am truly grateful to have a family that supports me in what I love to do.
RodeoChat: How old were you when you got on your first bull & what was it like riding a bull for your first time?
Derek McCormack: On my 14th b-day I got on my first 2,000 lb. bull It felt like jumping out of a plane it’s a feeling you’ll never forget.
RodeoChat: How many planes have you jumped out of? Lol JK!
Derek McCormack: Just one lol and I don’t think i will do it again unless I have to.. Ill stick to riding bulls it’s a lot closer to the ground ha
