Clayton Hass, Terrell, Texas
Clayton Hass definitely is no specialist when it comes to rodeo. That’s why he’s here.
Hass competes regularly as a tie-down roper, steer wrestler and header, and last year finished in the top 20 in the All-Around World Standings in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. Also, he finished 29th in the bulldogging standings. It’s all proof that he’s playing the game at a world-class level, which is a key ingredient to doing well in the Timed Event Championship.
Hass is just 28 years old, but he’s been a rodeo hand for 21 years. A 2002 graduate of Terrell (Texas) High School, he qualified for the National High School Finals Rodeo during his junior and senior seasons. When he’s not rodeoing, Hass trains horses; he also has worked as a firefighter in his hometown.
More than that, he’s shown the rodeo world that he can win at a high level. During the 2011 season, he won steer wrestling titles in Loveland, Colo., and Laughlin, Nev., and won all-around championships at Texas rodeos in Los Fresnos and Mineral Wells – also he won the bulldogging and team roping titles in Mineral Wells, roping with Casey Chamberlain on the latter.
