Riding the Wave with Marty Yates

Marty Yates joins "The Score" co-host Kaitlin Gustave in Season 4, brought to you by Farnam.

Marty Yates, a seven-time Wrangler NFR calf roping qualifier, is riding the team roping wave. He started out as a fill in for young-gun Jaxson Tucker, and now he’s picking up a heel rope for the remainder of the season.
