“The harder you work, the luckier you get.” – Gary Player
This quote fits Gatlin Goodson. He serves as a role model for many young showmen in Oklahoma both in the ring and with his work ethic. We are honored to feature him in our Junior Spotlight. – Ryan Jones
My name is Gatlin Goodson. I am 14 years old and am from Shattuck, Oklahoma. I have two sisters, Cassidy and Allyn. I play football, basketball, and baseball for Shattuck Jr. High. I am a member of the Shattuck FFA where I not only show steers and heifers, but am also on the livestock judging team.
What species do you show and who has influenced you most in your show career?
I show beef cattle. My most influential person in my show career is my mom. She has taught me how to be responsible, dedicated, and that hard work pays off, not only in the showring but in everyday life.
