grandparents Walker and Geneta LaCrone.
Best known voice in Payette County. Talented rodeo announcer, auctioneer and rodeo stock contractor.
Scooter got his start in Rodeo at his hometown of New Plymouth. He stepped up to

He was such a natural talent calling the rodeo action a new career was started. Many
rodeos throughout the northwest sought after him to announce their rodeos. He won
many awards and had the honor to be voted to be the voice of the ImPRA, ICA, Pro
West Finals Rodeos.
Scooter is always the favorite of the Hometown crowd of Payette County.
Scooter has always had a love for all aspects of rodeo and a talent working with rodeo
stock. He has been in the ownership position of the rodeo stock contracting business
for many years. His bucking stock has won many honors for stock of the year voted on
by the cowboys, Scooters bucking bull breeding program still continues to thrill crowds in PRCA. He has a natural talent for working with bucking stock. He knows every horse or bull by name and the best way to handle them.
He is very capable on all levels of rodeo beginner, amature,or pro. Scooter had an
arena at home and many cowboys came there to learn the sport of Rodeo or tune up
their skills. Scooter has been vested in all aspects of the rodeo world and never hesitates to step in where needed. Whether it's pickup man, flank man, sorting in back pens or the voice behind the microphone.
Thank you Scooter for all you have done for Payette County Rodeo.
