Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College will formally honor Coleman Proctor during the Outstanding Alumni Banquet on Saturday, Oct 21, at 11am in the Calcagno Family Ballroom.
Proctor grew up in Miami, Oklahoma. Proctor entered his first roping at nine and never looked back. During his high school career, he was named the Oklahoma High Rodeo Association reserve champion heeler in 2001 and qualified for the National High School Finals Rodeo in 2001 and 2004.
Proctor attended NEO from 2004 to 2006. He majored in agriculture business and was a team roper for the NEO rodeo team. As a freshman in 2005, he won the Central Plains Region as a heeler and qualified for the College Nationals Finals Rodeo. He then spent two years at Northwestern Oklahoma State University before beginning his full-time rodeo career with former NEO Rodeo team partner Jake Long.
Proctor has earned more than $1.5 million throughout his career. He has made seven trips to the Nationals Finals Rodeo and finished sixth in the team roping world standings and seventh in the All-Around world standings in 2022. He also qualified for the upcoming 2023 NFR.
One of Proctor’s most memorable accomplishments was when he and Long won the George Strait Team Roping Classic in 2010. He and his wife, Stephanie, live in Pryor, Oklahoma and have two daughters.
All alumni and friends of the college are invited to attend the banquet. Tickets are $25 and $15 (children 12 and under). Purchase tickets at the door or online. https://neo.edu/homecoming
