Abe Morris is a Black professional rodeo cowboy who grew up in Woodstown, New Jersey and got his start at Cowtown Rodeo riding junior bulls. After graduation from high school he ventured West and attended the University of Wyoming on academic and rodeo scholarships. He was a member of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association and competed on the UW rodeo team for four years.
While at the University of Wyoming he became a member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and earned a degree in Business Management. He competed in the bull riding event at various rodeos throughout the United States. Soon after graduating from college Abe obtained his PRCA announcer's card and is the only African-American to have earned this distinction.
Abe was a broadcast commentator for the telecasts of the world famous Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo (the Daddy of 'em All) for nine years with Prime Sports and FOX Sports Networks. He has been featured in several newspaper articles and television news stories as a result of his professional bull riding career. He qualified for the Mountain States Circuit Finals Rodeo eight times and the Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo twice.
Outside of the rodeo arena Mr. Morris was a very successful businessman and sold life insurance and annuity products. He finished third in the nation in 1994 for MMCA the financial services company that employed him. He has also had a great deal of success since he started writing in 2002. His articles have been published in several different publications. Abe is in the process of writing another book and has plans to write a minimum of four books.
Currrently Abe lives in Denver, Colorado with his son Justin. His future goals are to reach the best selling book lists and become a successful and well-known motivational speaker. I would say that he is already well on his way to the top.
