Kerry Doster enters his fourth season at the helm of the South Plains College rodeo program after leading the Sul Ross rodeo program from June 1996 until accepting his current position prior to the fall 2010 season. In addition to coaching the Sul Ross rodeo teams, Doster was also a lecturer in Farrier Technology and manager of the Faskin Ranch facility.
Doster is ambitious and sees no reason the Texan and Lady Texan program cannot elevate to new heights in the not-so-distant future.
"Our expectations are to win the men's and women's regional title in the next five years with hopes of a title at the College National Finals Rodeo," states Doster. "The administrative staff at South Plains College has given the rodeo program the resources and the tools to be successful."
Doster had his best season yet during the 2012-13 seasons, finishing third in the NIRA Southwest Region in the teams standings on the men’s side while also qualifying two steer wrestlers to the College National Finals Rodeo. Doster’s top hand, Ty Willick, was the Southwest Region champion and freshman JW Ery finished third to advance.
Doster's career in college rodeo began when he became a member of the Weatherford College rodeo team from 1992-1994. After graduating from Weatherford Doster transferred to Sul Ross where he continued to compete in the saddlebronc, bareback, and steer wrestling events until he graduated with a degree in Ag Business in 1996. Doster completed a masters of science degree in 2009, also from Sul Ross.
A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Doster was a member of the PRCA from 1994-2004 while competing in saddlebronc and steer wrestling. He still competes in steer wrestling and team roping, in addition to training horses in his spare time.
Doster and his wife, Lacey, reside in Levelland and have one daughter, Kellyanna.
A 2011 graduate of Tarleton State University, KC Curtis enters his first season as an assistant rodeo coach for the South Plains College Texans and Lady Texans.
A native of Monroe, Utah, Curtis is very familiar with the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA) as he is a two-time qualifier to the College National Finals Rodeo in the team roping event.
Curtis began his collegiate rodeo career at Howard College where he competed for the Hawks from 2007-2009 before transferring to Tarleton State University where he completed an undergraduate degree in Business Administration.
In 2008, Curtis and teammate Calvin Brevik qualified for the College National Finals Rodeo (CNFR) in Casper, Wyo., finishing sixth overall. Curtis again qualified for the prestigious collegiate rodeo final in 2010 with Tarleton.
Professionally, Curtis has made multiple trips to the Wilderness Circuit finals held in Ogden, Utah, competing in the team roping and calf roping events.
Curtis is engaged to Kelli Lohse who is a former member of the Lady Texan rodeo team where she competed in the goat tying and breakaway roping events.
