The unusual accomplishments of Cowboy Trevor Brazile

A lot of names have been used to describe the renowned Cowboy from Decatur, Texas but the one that suits Trevor Brazile very well is “King of the Cowboys.”

Trevor Brazile has 25 titles in the PRCA World Championships tie-down roper, team roper and steers roper. He has dominated the 21st century the Rodeos by setting records in 2006 single-season earnings with more than $329000, breaking that record multiple times in 2010 winning $507920.

The unusual accomplishments of Trevor Brazile

Brazile qualified in four events in NFR in 2003, making him the first Cowboy to do so. Not forgetting titles:

  • All-round in 2003-2004 and 2006-2015
  • Tie-down roping in 2007-2009 and 2010
  • Team roping in 2010
  • Steer roping in 2006-07, 2011, and 2013-15

In 2017, he won the all-round, steer-roping, and tie-down roping which enabled him to become the first 21st-century winner of the rodeo triple crown.

He is admired by the young Cowboy Jordan Lovins from Canada who happened to be the winner of the average title alongside Chase McGuire in the open division. They clinched the title in a 5-run time of 43.47 seconds.

Both of them pocketed $10300 and then while partnering with Sandstrom whom they settled for the second place with a run of 45.67 seconds, he earned $5600 gaining total earnings of $15900.

All of this took place at the Bob Feist Invitational near Oklahoma City, considering to be it was his first time being there and competing.

He was thrilled to win both first and second and went ahead to express his gratitude saying the wins were his most highlighted in his life.

But before the competition took place, earlier on Lovins, 17-years-old, hauled his steers at a friend’s home and his local fairgrounds in preparation for Wrangler BFI at the 3rd annual Hooey Junior BFI.

At the age of 5 is when he began honing his skills in team roping by competing and by 9, he started roping steers. Because his parents hauled them in competing with other kids of their age and made it easier by building an arena and there were horses, and along the years he came across people who turned out to help mold his young career.

Jordan Lovins also admires Joseph Harrison, the 3-time National Finals qualifier. Without a doubt, Lovins is the next generation of winners in PRCA and be sure to remember that name and stay safe during this time of COVID-19 pandemic.
