NTCC Athletics wants to welcome all back to the campus for the 2022-2023 year. Each week we will send out a bio on each of the coaching staff. This week we are highlighting Rodeo Coach, Justin Hampton.
Coach Justin Hampton arrived at NTCC in the summer of 2021. Coach Hampton was raised in Bakersfield, California before moving to Coalinga. He now resides in Blossom, Tx with his wife, Jennifer after relocating to be near their two daughters Abigayle Hampton-Williams, Elizabeth Hampton, and son-in-law Eric Williams. Recently Coach Hampton became a grandfather with the birth of his first grandson. A graduate of West Hills College Coalinga with an Associate of Arts in Ag Business, Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies from California State University Fresno, and a Master of Arts in History from Southern New Hampshire University, Hampton is a product of College Rodeo. As a student athlete he was able to qualify for the CNFR numerous times at the very college that he was able to return to and become the Head Coach. “I push the value of education to each one of our rodeo student-athletes and have always stood by the motto, this is College Rodeo, not Rodeo College”. A seven-time California Circuit Finalist and Circuit Champ in 1999 in team roping, Hampton is also an educator of many years at various teaching positions in the Central Valley of California. In addition to his teaching and coaching duties at West Hills Community College, Justin has served on Rodeo committees as the Regional Level in California as well as the Executive Board of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA).
