WSFA 12 News has an encouraging and uplifting announcement as the Southeastern Livestock Exposition Rodeo gears up for another year.

You may recall last year, during the rodeo, bull rider Lee Akin was seriously injured when a bull stepped on him, fracturing his skull. He spent months in the hospital, and there was no indication as to whether he would ever walk again.

At the kickoff luncheon for this year's rodeo on Thursday, organizers said not only is Akin walking, but he and his family will come back to Montgomery for this year's rodeo.

Mark your calendar, the rodeo is earlier than usual, March 6th through the 8th at Garrett Coliseum in Montgomery.
