Albany may be welcoming in a new champion next month, but instead of a microphone or baseball glove, his tool of choice will be a lasso.

Kaleb Driggers has qualified for the, "Wrangler National Finals Rodeo," in Las Vegas, Nevada next month. Driggers ropped himself a third place seat in the event, putting him in exellent position for a championship title.

When asked about the event, Driggers says it just shows that hard work definitely pays off.

"When you put your heart and soul into something everyday, day in and day out, year after year, ya know means a lot to you when you finally reach your goal," said Driggers.

Driggers is currently in Texas training and will head west at the end of November.
