Transcript UH Cowboy As an athlete representing UH, Tim Davison hasn't been named in any NCAA investigations or been interviewed by Liddell, Sapp or Zivley. With all expenses coming out of his pocket, he wears the red and white without the financial support of the university. No groups of women dance during halftime in tribute. As a member of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association, he must keep a minimum 2.0 GPA and be a full-time student. When he isn't studying or roping, Tim spends a lot of time at the northeast Houston stables where his seven year-old quarterhorse "Shadow" is kept. "When you've got a horse, you've always got something to do." Tim tries to rope at least three times a week and if he is doing well roping, he just rides. Being the only cowboy from UH "gets kinda lonely," he said. "Sometimes he gets real mad when they call his name because sometimes they say 'UT' instead of 'UH'," said his girlfriend Rosalind Mouton, a 21 year-old education junior. He usually travels with David Walker, a friend and fellow calf roper from Prarie View A&M. Some schools, like Southwest Texas State and last year's champion McNeese State, pay the entry fees and even award scholarships. But Tim's money for competition comes out of his pocket. Despite all of the hard work, it's the camaraderie among cowboys that "relaxes my mind," says Davison. In December, Tim will graduate and said he will keep on roping, in his spare time "as long as I'm healthy and enjoying it." "Rodeoing has taught me responsibility, and how to win and how to lose — just like life." — Mark Evangelista 129
