Chase Williams remains calm for Pendleton win

PENDLETON, Ore. – Chase Williams didn’t lose any sleep the night before he competed in the short round at the Pendleton Round-Up.

Not because he wasn’t nervous about entering the finals with the lead – no, it was a matter of all that travel catching up with him.

“I slept real good (Sept. 16) – I was tired because I’ve been all over the place,” he said with a laugh. “I was excited coming into the short round though. Any time you’re high call, you just have to put together a solid run and you’re going to get a good check. I was a little bit nervous, but Brent Lewis came over and told me I didn’t need any luck, and to just go be a cowboy. I was good to go after that.”

Good, indeed.

The 25-year-old tie-down roper from Stephenville, Texas, won the three-head average with a time of 28.3 seconds. He was second in the second round, and split second in the short go en route to the title.

Williams, who entered the weekend 30th in the WEATHER GUARD® PRCA World Standings, earned a total of $12,150.

He moved to 23rd in the Sept. 19 standings, but still has quite a bit of ground to make up in the final two weeks of the regular season to make it into the top 15 and qualify for his first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER.

“I think there’s enough time to make a run at it,” Williams said. “I’m at least going to give ‘em hell and scare the guys in front of me a little bit. I’m entered in Amarillo (Texas), Stephenville (Texas), Apache (Okla.) and Pasadena (Texas), so I still have four shots left.”

Williams remained calm under pressure Sept. 17, even though he knew it was essentially a must-win.

“I knew that this was my last large bullet, and I had to win really big here to have any chance,” he said. “It’s not the best chance, but it’s better than a lot of guys have. Since July I’ve had a really good couple of months, and it’s helped out my confidence a lot and made me feel a lot better about next year.”

While some ropers have issues navigating the unique grass infield at the Pendleton Round-Up, that wasn’t the case for Williams. He and his mount were familiar with the setup.

“Last year I rode one of Troy Pruitt’s horses, Tank, and was able to make it to the short go, but the calf got up,” Williams said. “I rode the horse again this year, and he worked so good that it felt like we were on dirt. I just roped normal.”

Williams couldn’t stop smiling during his victory lap, which signified the biggest win of his four-year PRCA career.

“This is an amazing feeling; I’ve wanted to win a rodeo like this my whole life,” he said. “It was awesome, and hard to put into words.”

Other winners at the $515,665 rodeo were all-around cowboy Shane Erickson ($3,496 in tie-down roping and team roping), bareback rider Tim O’Connell (172 points on two head), steer wrestler Nick Guy (15.9 seconds on three head), team ropers Ryan Reed and Dalton Pearce (19.5 seconds on three head), saddle bronc rider Jesse Wright (170.5 points on two head), steer roper Ryan Rochlitz (42.4 seconds on three head), barrel racer Stevi Hillman (59.36 seconds on two runs) and bull rider Sage Kimzey (169.5 points on two head).

Wright is the fourth member of his family to win the Pendleton Round-Up saddle bronc riding title. His twin brother, Jake, won the rodeo in 2013, while older brother Cody took the title in 2010 and younger brother Spencer won it last year.

 

Brown captures big Albuquerque victory

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Bareback rider Jake Brown may have missed more than three months of rodeo action, but there was no rust to be found when he returned the weekend of Sept. 17-18.

The Cleveland, Texas, cowboy – who had been out since early June with a right (riding) thumb injury – won the New Mexico State Fair & Rodeo Sept. 18, just 24 hours after he was victorious at the Rose City Roundup in Tyler, Texas.

“It’s great to win in Tyler, and Albuquerque,” said Brown, 26. “I cracked back out this week and I just wanted to get my rhythm going again. I felt good, and was able to ride good and win a bunch of money.”

Brown had an 86.5-point ride on Cervi Championship Rodeo’s Rockstar by Vitalix to capture the victory at Tingley Coliseum in the Land of Enchantment.

He made his ride in Albuquerque Sept. 17, and when the rodeo concluded a day later, he earned $4,583. Brown added $1,929 for his winning 86-point ride on Stace Smith Pro Rodeos’ Cactus Black in Tyler, and he also earned $1,479 for placing second at the Four States Fair & Rodeo (Sept. 15-17) in Texarkana, Ark.

“I had never ridden that horse,” Brown said of Rockstar by Vitalix. “That horse has been around for a while, and it worked out really well. The horse was leaping and kicking and she felt really good. After the whistle, she kind of slammed me and almost stepped on me. It looked cool for the crowd, and fortunately I didn’t get hurt.”

The welcome-back performances helped Brown assure his second-straight trip to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER. Brown moved up one spot to eighth in the Sept. 19 WEATHER GUARD® PRCA World Standings with $76,154.

“It’s awesome to solidify my spot at the NFR again,” said Brown, who finished a career-best eighth in the world standings a year ago. “Last year, I put a little pressure on myself and I didn’t have the best Finals, and this year I want to ride like it’s just another rodeo.”

Brown, who was leading the June 6 world standings, suffered ligament damage in his thumb at the Jasper (Texas) Lions Benefit Rodeo (May 11-14). He had surgery to repair it on June 16, and hadn’t seen rodeo action since the June 11 Wrangler Champions Challenge presented by Justin Boots in Kissimmee, Fla.

Was Brown worried he might fall out of the top 15 while being sidelined?

“For a little bit,” Brown said. “Then after a while, I felt safe and I just worked on coming back.”

Other winners at the $154,466 rodeo were all-around cowboy Seth Hall ($2,327 in tie-down roping and team roping), steer wrestlers Joshua Clark and J.D. Struxness (3.7 seconds each), team ropers Paul David Tierney/Cesar de la Cruz, Tee Luttrell/Clay Sieber and Chase Massengill/Daylan Frost (5.6 seconds each), saddle bronc rider Jake Wright (83 points on The Cervi Brothers’ On Fire), tie-down ropers Ryan Jarrett and Cody McCartney (7.7 seconds each), barrel racer Taylor Langdon (14.97 seconds) and bull riders Joe Frost (84 points on 4L & Diamond S Rodeo’s Bad Wine), and Cody Teel (84 points on Salt River Rodeo’s Silence Reigns 84 points).

  • Will McBride won the average title at the Mountain States Steer Roping Circuit Finals Sept. 18 in Douglas, Wyo. The 51-year-old native of Ogallala, Neb., was the only man to rope all five steers, and did so in 80.4 seconds. McBride also placed second in the second round, and earned a total of $3,920. It was his second MSSRCF average title, as he also won the event in 2005.
  • Contract personnel named for WNFR and NFSR

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The contract personnel for the Dec. 1-10 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER and the Nov. 11-12 Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping have been announced, and the lists feature some familiar names.

For the fourth straight year, the trio of announcers for the WNFR remains the same. Boyd Polhamus of Brenham, Texas, Randy Corley of Silverdale, Wash., and Wayne Brooks of Lampasas, Texas, will be on the microphone for the 10 nights in Las Vegas. It marks the 18th consecutive year Polhamus will announce the WNFR, and his 21st overall. It’s Corley’s 16th WNFR appearance, and the sixth of Brooks’ career.

Livestock superintendent John Barnes of Sutherland, Iowa, makes his 11th consecutive WNFR appearance, and is joined by chute bosses Tony Amaral of Marysville, Calif. (timed event) and Tom Neuens of Powell, Wyo. (roughstock). Ryan Brown of Ft. Laramie, Wyo., is the assistant livestock superintendent, while Benje Bendele of Dublin, Texas, is the music director.

Sunni Deb Backstrom of Congress, Ariz., is the WNFR secretary, which marks the 11th year in a row she has been selected, and the 14th overall. Amanda Corley Sanders of Pagosa Springs, Colo., is the assistant secretary.

Timer Jayme Pemberton of Terrell, Texas, is making her inaugural WNFR trip, and is joined by Jessi Franzen of Riverton, Wyo. (third straight year) and Amy Muller of Agar, S.D., who’s making her second trip in a row. Vickie Shireman of Elk City, Okla., is the office manager.

On the NFSR side, Charlie Throckmorton of Grandview, Texas, and Curt Robinson of Pendleton, Ore., will handle the announcing duties.

Throckmorton has announced the Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping 16 times in a row, 17 times overall – second only to legendary rodeo announcer McSpadden himself (27 times and 17 in a row). Robinson makes his 12th appearance at the NFSR, and first since 1995.

Chute boss John Gwatney of Marquez, Texas, is back for his seventh consecutive trip, while usher Jeff Rector of Kansas City, Mo., and secretary Darla Kelley of Kansas City, Mo., each make their first appearance.

Timer Mary Brunner of Bergheim, Texas, makes her fifth trip, and first since 2008, and is joined by Bonnie Cusimano, who makes her first appearance at the NFSR. Jill Franzen Loden of Weatherford, Texas, is back as the music director for the second time.

 

WNFR bubble update

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – With just 12 days left in the 2016 regular season, every cowboy is jockeying for position to end up in the top 15 and qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER.

Here are some of men who made their move this past weekend:

  • After earning three checks in Pendleton, Guy Allen’s dream of returning to the Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping for the first time since 2008, is a little bit closer to reality. Allen, who turned 56 earlier this month, moved up from 15th to 12th place in the WEATHER GUARD® PRCA World Standings and is looking to extend his record for most NFSR qualifications to 34. Brent Lewis won a round outright, and shared another round win to earn $8,669 in Pendleton and move within $1,819 of JoJo LeMond for the 15th and final qualifying spot in the NFSR.
  • And then there were six: Jesse Wright’s big win in Pendleton was worth $10,014 and bounced him from 18th to 11th in the saddle bronc riding world standings, while his nephew, Ryder Wright, advanced from 17th to 13th, forcing Tyrell Smith and two-time World Champion Taos Muncy out of the top 15. Muncy has been battling a strained left groin since initially injuring it at the Aug. 16-20 Caldwell (Idaho) Night Rodeo. There are now six members of the Wright clan of Milford, Utah, in position to reach the Wrangler NFR Dec. 1-10, with Ryder joining older brother, Rusty, and Jesse joining his brothers Jake and Cody, and brother-in-law, CoBurn Bradshaw. If this holds up, Cody, Rusty and Ryder will become the third set of father and two sons to qualify for the National Finals in the same year.
  • Billy Bugenig can take a big deep breath today. Fourteenth in the world standings entering the week and just $1,664 ahead of two-time World Champion Dean Gorsuch in 16th, Bugenig earned checks totaling $6,370 in Pendleton, Ore.; Albuquerque, N.M., and Abilene, Texas, to move up to 11th. Trevor Knowles kept his hold on the 15th spot in the standings with checks in Pendleton and St. George, Utah, but remains just $1,962 ahead of 16th-place Gorsuch.
  • Teddy Athan’s bid for a first Wrangler NFR berth in the bareback riding suffered a blow despite a win at the Sheriff’s PRCA Rodeo in San Bernardino, Calif., that paid him $1,774. Texan Richmond Champion pushed Athan down to 16th place in the world standings by earning three checks in Pendleton – including a sixth-place result in the average – and another in St. George, Utah, for finishing in a tie for fifth place. Bill Tutor, in the 17th spot, moved to within $400 of Athan with checks in Abilene, Texas; Tyler, Texas, and Texarkana, Ark.
  • There were two changes in the tie-down roping top 15, with Blane Cox and J.C. Malone supplanting WNFR veterans Adam Gray and Tyson Durfey (a total of 12 qualifications between them). Malone made the biggest jump, from 21st to 15th by tying for fifth in the average in Pendleton, finishing fourth in Albuquerque, N.M., and winning the rodeo in San Bernardino, Calif., with a 7.8-second run. Cox went from 16th to 13th by finishing fourth in the Pendleton average and winning another check in Abilene, Texas.
  • 2011 World Champion Bull Rider Shane Proctor had a win in Harrison, Ark., and Bayle Worden had one of his own in Tyler, Texas, effectively canceling each other out and remaining 15th and 16th in the world standings, respectively. Proctor widened his lead slightly, to $6,272.
  • The only change in the team roping standings came on the heading side, where Billy Bob Brown moved up from 16th to 14th on the strength of a tie for second place in St. George, Utah, and a seventh-place finish in Albuquerque, N.M. Dustin Egusquiza slid to 16th place, $829 behind Zac Small in 15th.
  • News & Notes from the rodeo trail

Commotion, one of the greatest bucking horses of all time, passed away on Sept. 7 at the Beutler & Son ranch near Elk City, Okla. He was 25. Commotion, a 1,300-pound bay stallion who stood at 16.1 hands, was voted the top bareback horse at his first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in 1997. He went on to win the next three Bareback Riding Horse of the Year awards, 1998-2000, when he was part of the Beutler and Gaylord Rodeo Company string. He made 10 consecutive trips (1997-2006) to the WNFR before retiring in his prime at the 2006 WNFR at the age of 15. Two rounds were won on him at the WNFR … ProRodeoLive will be airing live coverage of the Sept. 23-25 Cowboy Capital of the World PRCA Rodeo in Stephenville, Texas. The Sept. 23-24 performances begin at 7 p.m. (CT), with the final perf airing at 2 p.m. Sept. 25, at www.prorodeolive.com

 

Doug Turner, a former PRCA tie-down roper, passed away Sept. 8 at Salinas (Calif.) Valley Memorial Hospital. He was 54. Turner joined the PRCA in 1987 and competed many years in the Sierra (now California) Circuit. He was born Sept. 25, 1961, in San Luis Obispo, where he lived for many years, before returning to Salinas. Online condolences may be made at www.struveandlaporte.com

 

Bareback rider R.C. Landingham will miss the remainder of the PRCA regular season, which concludes Sept. 30, with a left knee injury. “I was riding in the short round at Pendleton (Sept. 17) and I smashed my knee between my horse and the pick-up men,” Landingham said. “I think my meniscus has a tear in it. I took a 10-day (doctor release, through Sept. 28), just to see how it feels, but it’s not really getting any better, so I’m probably going to get it looked at it in the next day or two in Redding, (Calif.).” Landingham, who has qualified for the WNFR for the first time this season, is fifth in the Sept. 19 WEATHER GUARD® PRCA World Standings with $104,678.

 

The St. Paul (Ore.) Rodeo started its “Beyond the Boots” night and fundraising activities in 2011, and since then it has generated nearly $90,000 for the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund. The 2016 donation was $21,493. St. Paul Rodeo designates an entire performance to raise funds and awareness for the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund and the Justin Sportsmedicine Team. In addition to those funds, the rodeo held a live auction at its Hall of Fame Barbecue and a drawing at its trail ride. All of the tips from the famous Tack Room Saloon are also donated to JCCF.

 

Marty Barnes, owner of Barnes Rodeo, was recently inducted into the Iowa High School Rodeo Association Hall of Fame. Barnes was presented a plaque during the Moville High School Rodeo in recognition of his achievements within the sport of rodeo on all levels. Barnes competed in the IHSRA from 1976-79. He was also a member of the Iowa State University rodeo team from 1981-84 … Former PRCA saddle bronc rider Cody Angland is now the Saddle Bronc Riding Director for the Australian Professional Rodeo Association. Angland finished in the top 25 of the PRCA world standings in 2011-12.

 

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“It’s a dream come true, and I’ve wanted one of these buckles for a long time. This is truly one of the best rodeos you can win, because of all the stuff they give you, and because they appreciate you. It’s one of the toughest places to win because of the elements, and I’m going to be proud wearing the buckle.”

-Shane Erickson, who won the all-around title at the Pendleton Round-Up,

explaining to radio host Butch Thurman what the victory meant.
