Corey Waggoner
2013-2014 Masked Rider

Corey Waggoner is a junior animal science major from Lubbock. Born and raised in the Hub City, he has always been a Red Raider fan. In the coming year he will promote spirit and goodwill for Texas Tech while spreading his love of horses, passion for riding, and love for the university.

He will be the first Masked Rider to officially ride the program's new horse, Fearless Champion.

The son of Travis and Annette Waggoner, Corey attended New Deal High School and graduated from South Plains College in 2011 with an associate degree in science before transferring to Texas Tech. He already is a member of the Masked Rider family, as he volunteered on the Masked Rider field safety crew for the past two years.
