If Ty Murray is known as the “King of Cowboys,” then Trevor Brazile is rodeo’s version of the “King of Kings.”

Brazile is owner of a record 10 All-Around World Championships, a big portion of his 17 overall – he also owns one heading, three steer roping and three tie-down roping gold buckles. He’s well on his way to adding more in 2013. Not only is he the No. 1 man in the all-around, Brazile is second in steer roping, fourth in tie-down roping and seventh in heading.

This weekend marks the 40th National Finals qualification in his storied career, but he’s also heading to Las Vegas in less than a month in tie-down roping and team roping. That gives Brazile the inside track on earning his 11th All-Around title.

In all, the Texan earned 33 rodeo titles, including 17 all-around championships. He also added steer roping crowns in Bridgeport, Texas; Walla Walla,Wash.; Lewiston, Idaho; and the famous Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days Rodeo.

That’s why he’s the No. 2 man in the field this weekend. More importantly, it’s why he’s one of the big favorites to leave the Lazy E Arena with another gold buckle.
