Bear Pascoe is a name that many New York Giants fans will likely remember from his time with the team. Pascoe, who will be 34 years old next week, has football in his rearview mirror, but he isn’t done competing.
For some, moving on from the NFL can be a difficult adjustment, but it seems as though the former Super Bowl champion is onto pursuing rodeo as dream No. 2.
Following his release from the New England Patriots in 2016, Pascoe didn’t miss a beat making his next move on to rodeo.
“I just figured that was the next step,” . “That was always my plan. As soon as I was done with football, I’d dive into rodeo. It was time to move onto the next dream, the next goal.”
Pascoe grew up in California in a family of ranchers, but as the dream of playing in the NFL became a reality, he prioritized his football career. His father-in-law was a world champion steer wrestler and is now teaching Pascoe all he knows about the sport.
“This was something I was very upfront with Katie about,” Pascoe said of his wife. “I’d always said the two dreams I had were winning a Super Bowl and winning an NFR title. Katie is my No. 1 supporter. She’s always there in my corner. She was there from the get-go with my NFL career, there for the high and the lows.
“She saw everything with San Francisco, and that was a bad situation, to the good times in New York to the journeyman times from Atlanta to Chicago to Detroit to New England. When things were coming to an end, she was good with it, and she was excited to get back to the ranch and get started working with her horses.”
