Thanks to Ty for coming on. Here’s Ty McClary’s IMDB. (He went by Ty O’Neal. It’s his middle name.) Watch the Cinch High School Rodeo Tour on RFD-TV. The next episode airs Sunday at 12:30 EST.

Here’s the Wikipedia for “The Good Old Boys.” Leonardo DiCaprio isn’t on the cast list, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t on it.

    Great to hear the podcast with the cowboy and he is still as nice and centered as he was when we were teaching him to skate. there was no way I was not teaching him to be able to skate for the film .I had a philosophy that I shared with the players all the time and it was if you come to me with a problem…have a solution!! In Tys case he was such a great kid I had to come up with a solution for him. A great kid and still down to earth.
