PAUL DAVID TIERNEY, Oral, S.D.
One does not grow up in the shadows of one of ProRodeo’s top all-around cowboys without learning a thing or two.
Paul David Tierney is the youngest son of two-time PRCA World Champion Paul Tierney, a four-time winner of the Timed Event Championship. It’s quite possible the biggest lesson the younger Tierney learned from Dad was how to win. In fact, Paul and Paul David roped together to win the team roping championship last season.
In addition, Paul David earned 12 other titles, including a clean sweep in Sturgis, S.D., where he won the team roping, tie-down roping and all-around titles in 2012. Roping with Cody Doescher, the pair earned championships in Garden City, Kan.; Hermiston, Ore.; Isanti, Minn.; Gillette, Wyo.; Burlington, Colo.; and Spooner, Wis.
Now Paul David joins his father and older brother, Jess, as invitees into this exclusive field. That’s proof that this bloodline runs deep and that Paul David Tierney is carrying on the family’s legacy quite well.
Now he’d like to win this championship, which would just add more gold to the Tierney lore.
