Kyle Whitaker captures ninth Linderman award

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Twenty years ago, Kyle Whitaker won his first Linderman Award, a decoration bestowed upon select cowboys that win at least $1,000 in a minimum of three events, where two of three must include one roughstock and timed event.
Following in the footsteps of his father, Chip, a four-time recipient of the Linderman Award, Whitaker understands the magnitude of its legacy, as he now accepts his ninth career victory of the multi-event achievement.
“It’s something I’ve wanted to win ever since I was a little kid going to rodeos with my dad,” Whitaker said. “I always grew up knowing about it. That probably makes it more special to me than most of the guys that go. A lot of people don’t really know about it. I know the history of the award and respect it a lot.”
The Linderman Award, named after ProRodeo Hall of Fame cowboy Bill Linderman, is intended to recognize cowboys capable and willing to perform at both ends of the arena. In total, Linderman’s career ended with six world championships to his name, including two in the all-around (1950, 1953) and saddle bronc riding (1945, 1950) as well as claiming world titles in bareback riding (1943) and steer wrestling (1950).
Given the rigors of rodeo, even the spryest of cowboys are challenged to work multiple events. At the age of 41, Whitaker says it’s a matter of simply giving what he has.
He earned the majority of his money – $51,233 – in steer wrestling, while also collecting $9,666 in tie-down roping and $3,740 in saddle bronc riding.
“A lot of it is I just keep doing it,” Whitaker said. “I don’t get rusty. I just keep going. I haven’t taken a lot of time off to where I may lose some of my edge. Just stay in shape, and you have to keep the will to win at both ends.”
Despite his veteran age and the try on his body, Whitaker still has plans to rodeo this winter. Whenever the end to his career arises, and however it may finish, Whitaker will have no qualms with the time he’s spent in the sport he’s known for all his years.
“It’s something I’ve always dreamed of,” Whitaker said. “I remember when I won it the first time, nobody else had qualified and nobody had won it the year before. I thought well, I’d win it 10 times easy. And then here, to win it the ninth time 20 years later, it’s like man, that’s a lot of hard work and it takes a lot of perseverance to stick with it that long.
“It means a heck of a lot more now than it did when I was a 21-year-old kid.”

2. Morman wins Badlands Circuit Finals Rodeo

MINOT, N.D. – Steer wrestler Cameron Morman keeps getting better. By winning the RAM Badlands Circuit Finals Rodeo on Oct. 8, this 24-year-old bulldogger is off to a solid start in the 2018 season as he seeks his first qualification for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER.
Morman was off to a running start by winning the first round of the RBCFR with a 4.2-second run.
“I just backed into the box and got the start I wanted,” Morman said.
By placing fourth in the second round with a 4.4, he went on to win the average with 18.3 seconds on four head – good for a grand total of $5,451. This win also means Morman’s set for his second appearance at the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo in Kissimmee, Fla., April 5-8.
“You can win a lot of money there; and this counts toward next year’s world standings and that’s a good jump on next year,” Morman said. “I was there (the RNCFR) in 2015 and it would be good to get back. There’s a lot of money up for grabs there and it’s a big opportunity.”
Morman’s win at the RBCFR was worth nearly as much as his entire season earnings in 2016, when he was 171st with $5,853. Previously, the bulldogger from Glen Ullin, N.D., was 122nd in 2015 with $8,433, and was 136th in 2014 with $7,738.
Morman took the bull by the horns in 2017, finishing the regular season 34th with $45,159 and was ranked second in the Badlands Circuit standings with $11,166. His massive improvement in the 2017 season was thanks in part to winning four rodeos: the PRCA Championship Rodeo in Bismarck, N.D., on Feb. 4; the Bell County PRCA Rodeo in Belton, Texas, on Feb. 11; the Northeast Montana Fair & Rodeo in Glasgow, Mont., on Aug. 2; and the Cattlemen Days Rodeo in Ashland, Mo., on Aug. 26.
“A win is a win, it’s always good and there’s no such thing as a bad win,” Morman said, adding that he’s aiming for the 2018 WNFR. “This past year is the first I went and rodeoed all year, I used to just go to circuit rodeos.”
Morman got a taste of Las Vegas while in Minot, N.D., by riding a WNFR horse along with Chason Floyd and Jake Rinehart, who are ranked first and third in the Badlands Circuit. The trio all rode Rinehart’s 12-year-old buckskin gelding, Rio. Rinehart is a three-time competitor at the WNFR (2007, 2009 and 2011), and Rio was with him in Las Vegas.
“He’s super calm, easy to score on and has a great pattern,” Morman said. “He’s everything you want in a bulldogging horse.”
In addition to using the same horse, the three bulldoggers all had the same hazer – Billy Boldon.
“He did a great job,” Morman said.
Morman was already planning to hit the rodeo road hard for the 2018 season, so winning the RBCFR gave him a good jump start to the new season.
“I leave Tuesday for the All American Finals in Waco, Texas, and hopefully I can keep the ball rolling,” Morman said.
Other winners at the $193,576 rodeo were bareback rider Ty Breuer (324 points on four head), team ropers Logan Olson/Matt Kasner (22.4 seconds on four head), saddle bronc rider JJ Elshere (321.5 points on four head), tie-down roper Paul David Tierney (36.9 seconds on four head), barrel racer Nikki Hansen (55.09 seconds on four runs) and bull rider Jeff Bertus (207 points on three head).

3. Vazquez dominates at Turquoise Circuit Finals

PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. – Heading into the RAM Turquoise Circuit Finals Rodeo, bull rider Joseph Vazquez simply wanted to cover a bull and see where the momentum carried him. Vazquez not only found what he craved, but he’s still digesting the biggest win of his young rodeo career.
With a two-head score of 169.5 points, Vazquez was the only bull rider at the Turquoise Circuit Finals Rodeo to make two qualified rides. With two round wins and ground money included, Vazquez was the recipient of $8,882.
“It’s really exciting,” said Vazquez, 28. “It’s been three years coming. This third year it finally happened, so that’s really cool.”
No cowboy rode to the whistle in the first round of the Turquoise Circuit Finals, enabling Vazquez to take advantage of the opening. Drawing Honeycutt Rodeo’s Crop Hopper in the second round, Vazquez topped the bull for a weekend-best 88 points, followed by a clinching ride of 81.5 points atop Salt River Rodeo’s Rio’s Jagged Edge in the Oct. 7 final performance.
“I wanted to win some rounds,” Vazquez explained. “I wanted to stay on at least one bull. That first bull I got on, I lost my rope at right about seven seconds, and I was just fired up for the rest of the weekend. In round three, everybody fell off and I was the last guy out, and I told myself I was gonna ride him just because I’d already won it.
“I went two-for-three and that’s a pretty cool deal.”
More than doubling his circuit total for the 2017 season at the Turquoise Circuit Finals Rodeo, Vazquez says he’ll be able to put some money away for his daughter, Ellie, and provide some financial security for his family.
“What this money did was kind of give me a cushion and allow me to put some money back in case something were to happen to me,” he said. “If any emergency were to come up, I have some money put back and can make sure she’s well taken care of. On my side of the family, we’re all happy, happy, happy over here.”
Vazquez’s bull riding career began at 18 years old, and according to the Alamogordo, N.M., native, his game is mostly self-taught. Now, with admittance to next year’s RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo, April 5-8, Vazquez hopes to see how far his natural bull riding skills can take him in Kissimmee, Fla.
“Just qualifying for the circuit finals was a big deal for me,” he said. “You know how goals progress, you get somewhere and you look higher. I’m on a path.
“Pretty much the metaphor for rodeo, for me, is the metaphor for life. The more you give it, the more it will give you back.”
Other winners at the $179,087 rodeo were bareback rider Kyle Charley (237.5 points on three head), steer wrestler Jace Melvin (15.7 seconds on three head), team ropers Brady Payne/Junior Zambrano II (22.5 seconds on three head), saddle bronc rider Leon Fountain (237 points on three head), tie-down roper Seth Hall (28.7 seconds on three head), barrel racer Lori Todd (46.08 seconds on three runs), and steer roper Corey Ross (27.2 seconds on two head).

4. PRCA/Resistol Rookies of the Year crowned

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The 2017 PRCA/Resistol Rookies of the Year have been settled, with Nelson Wyatt leading the way as the all-around champion.
“It’s definitely an honor and I started out the year heading and to win all-around too is definitely a bonus,” Wyatt said. “It’s always been a goal of mine to win the Rookie of the Year. I set out this year with that as my main goal and to achieve that goal means a lot.”

5. News & Notes from the rodeo trail

ProRodeoLive.com will broadcast the All American ProRodeo Finals Oct. 12-14, beginning at 7 p.m. (CT) each day … The PRCA has announced a partnership with 5050 Central, a company which specializes in electronic real-time digital raffle systems. The Canadian-based company has already worked with PRCA rodeos in the past, including the Ponoka (Alberta) Stampede, Reno (Nev.) Rodeo & Xtreme Bulls, Strathmore (Alberta) Stampede and Williams Lake (B.C.) Stampede. “We are pleased to partner with 5050 Central to bring the rodeo tradition of the 5050 raffle into the age of technology,” PRCA Commissioner Karl Stressman said. “This company offers a streamlined way for our rodeo committees to conduct 5050 raffles, and allows those committees to generate revenue that goes back into the community and to various charitable organizations. No matter who wins the raffle, the big winner is the rodeo community.” Jason Little, VP of Business Development of Gaming Nation, said the following: “We know our raffle fundraising technology will be a great new asset to PRCA events – creating a new means of excitement for fans, while also acting as an incredible fundraising vehicle for the organizing committee and its partnered charity.” …Ernie Gipson, who qualified for the 1979 National Finals Steer Roping event and finished 10th in the final world standings, passed away Oct. 6 in John Day, Ore. He was 61. Gipson became a PRCA member in 1973. In 1979, at age 23, Gipson qualified for the NFSR in grand style. He finished tied for second at the Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days, tying ProRodeo Hall of Famer Phil Lyne, thanks to winning more than $4,860. He also team roped and he credited his father and former PRCA competitor Tom Gipson as the biggest influence on his rodeo career … For much of this year, the staff of Pete Carr Pro Rodeo has been raising money for the Cowboys Who Care Foundation. Carr not only plans to continue his giving mission at every rodeo that features the firm, but he also will open the opportunity for everyone to help by selling the popular Pete Carr Pro Rodeo hats, made by Resistol, on the company’s website, www.PeteCarrProRodeo.com. “We are going to take the proceeds from those online hat sales through the end of the year and donate them to Cowboys Who Care,” said Carr, who also serves on the foundation’s board. “We believe in this organization, so I wanted to find as many avenues as possible to continue giving.”Cowboys Who Care was founded by comedian cowboy Bill Martin and his wife, Michele. “The hat means honor, bravery and kindness,” Martin said. “Our sole mission is financial support, smiles and free cowboy hats for boys and girls who have cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.”
