TREVOR BRAZILE, Decatur, Texas
There are many numbers associated with Trevor Brazile’s magnificent career.
Seventeen – as in the number of world championship gold buckles; 10 – as in the number of all-around world championships; six – as in the number of Timed Event Championship titles.
When you add it all up, the math is quite simple: Trevor Brazile is the greatest timed-event hands in ProRodeo history and, quite possibly, one of the greatest cowboys to have ever played the game. He’d love to add to those figures this weekend.
But with that kind of history, he’s also got the biggest target on his back. Why not? He’s the only man in rodeo’s history to have surpassed the $4 million mark in PRCA earnings. He’s done so while focusing his attention on three events: team roping, tie-down roping and steer roping.
He’s earned world championships in all three events – three each in steer roping and tie-down roping and one heading gold buckle. In fact, he joins Dale Smith as the two men in PRCA history to have qualified for the National Finals in all four roping disciplines.
Do the math for yourself, but cherish the moment of watching the greatest cowboy in the game compete before you.
