    The World’s Most Dangerous Sport | Ezekiel Mitchell

    "To be a bullrider you have to have that eye of the tiger. You got to have that desire in your heart." Ezekiel Mitchell learned how to ride bulls from YouTube videos at the age of 16 and he was good — so good that he went pro to support his family. Then Hurricane Harvey hit, and his mom’s home was decimated.
