The River Oaks Arena IPRA Pro Rodeo has done more than enter its 25th year, beginning today at Ware Shoals’ River Oaks Arena.
It has grown into a family affair.
Although Tommy Amick is the director, his son, Jake, has grown into an integral role. 

A former Ware Shoals High School quarterback, Jake Amick once thought about playing college football.
Because of burnout, he instead entered Piedmont Tech and found a love for civil engineering.
And, of course, rodeo.
