HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Beau Michal might be a mutton bustin' champion, but he seemed a little preoccupied with what may be happening underneath it all at RodeoHouston on Sunday.
The adorable and well-mannered young man from Fulshear said he hopes to become a paleontologist when he grows up, and even believes there may be dinosaurs buried underneath NRG Stadium.
But, instead of a shovel, he was adamant about claiming his belt buckle award.

The little boy was able to make it all the way across the mutton bustin' field without letting go.
"I just hanged on tight," Michal said, to laughs from the crowd of about 70,000 people.
