Admittedly, one of our favorite things about the NFR is the outfits, but we can’t pass up an opportunity to cheer on some of our favorite participants! A couple of months ago we weren’t sure if the NFR was even going to happen! In September when it was announced that the venue would change from the historic Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas to the Globe Life Field in Arlington, TX we were more than relieved. If you didn’t get the chance to see who the winners are we put together a little rundown of the top four.
The competition was fierce this year. The contestants came in it to win it and truly brought their A-game. Stetson Wright, a bull and bronc rider from Milford, UT., went home with the title of World All-Around Leader and took home a whopping $392,302.14. Wright might be young but he’s is extremely well known in the rodeo world and we have a feeling he’ll be in the game for many more years to come.
Tuf Cooper from Decatur, TX walked away with the second-place All-Around spot. Cooper is a pro-roper and excels in steer roping and tie-down roping. Cooper has four world titles and continues to impress every time he competes.
The third-place All-Around champion is Clay Smith from Broken Bow, OK. Smith has two world titles and six previous NFR qualifications. He is #26 in the world for Steer Roping and #6 in the world for Team Roping. Clay has been a member since 2012 and he continues to rise in the rodeo ranks.
Rounding it out in fourth place is roper Trevor Brazile from Decatur, TX. Brazile is ranked #1 in the world for steer roping and has a total of twenty-six world titles and 31 previous NFR qualifications. He has been a member since 1995 and continues to excel at his craft.
Although 2020 threw us for a loop, we can’t wait to see what 2021 has in store for the rodeo world!
