RODEO 2015: Defending all-around champion Brazile returns to Prescott
PRESCOTT, Arizona - World record-breaking pro cowboy Trevor Brazile again headlines the list of contestants returning to the Prescott Frontier Days' "World's Oldest Rodeo" Monday through next Sunday at the Rodeo Grounds.
Brazile, 38, who has captured an all-time high 21 world championships and 12 all-around world titles since his prolific Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) career began in 1996, will rope here on three different days, Frontier Days Rodeo general manager J.C. Trujillo confirmed earlier this month.
"He's undoubtedly the most talented timed-event cowboy that's ever been," Trujillo said.
In 2014, the 5-foot-11, 170-pound Brazile of Decatur, Texas, won his record ninth consecutive world all-around crown at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas.
And while it's still relatively early in the 2015 season, Brazile just keeps cruising along. The tie-down roper, team roper and steer roper has already taken home all-around buckles at six different rodeos this year and leads the all-around world standings by a hefty margin.
Brazile will compete here on Monday in the single steer roping, Trujillo said, and come back and rope on Wednesday night. He's also competing in the team roping as a header with heeling partner Patrick Smith on Saturday.
