DIRECTOR’S CUT BECKY HILLIER

Hillier joins PRCA as Director of Communications

H ave you ever asked yourself who you are? Most likely you have. The answer initially may seem simple. For me, I’m a wife, mother, daughter, sister and now, I’m the new Director of Communications &Media for the PRCA. By the way, it’s great to meet you! When we think about who we are, I’m not sure we give enough thought to the question before we answer, label ourselves and move on. A few years back, I found precious black and white photos of my beautiful mom in her early 20s. Donning a cowboy hat, boots, and an easy, confident smile, she was the epitome of a cowgirl. Raised on a ranch in Richland County, Mont., she herded cattle, chased chickens, cleaned barns, milked cows, and mended fences. One of nine children born in the country, she became acquainted with hard work as soon as she could walk. My dad was a handsome cowboy and a ranch kid as well, who was known to jump on the back of a horse from time to time at local rodeos. He loved country music, Black Velvet and sang and played the guitar just as well as Merle, Conway, and George. After they married, they moved toMiles City, Mont., where my siblings and I were born and raised. Miles City – the Cow Capital of the West – is the home of the World-Famous Bucking Horse Sale. For me though, my hometown is most famous for its people. People

like my folks, who worked hard, had firm handshakes, and looked you in the eye when they spoke. Honest, resilient people who have a fierce love for their families, their country, and their faith. I was not a ranch kid. I dragged main with my friends, played kickball, swam in the summer and ice skated in the winter. I played basketball from dusk ’til dawn in the driveway. The closest I came to being a cowgirl, was playing basketball for the Custer County Cowgirls. I did ride horses a few times - Shetland ponies and ornery sway-back mares count, right? As the years have passed though, I’ve thought more about who I am. Even though I was raised in the “city”, my parents instilled their Western values and sensibilities in me, something for which I am so thankful. It’s a connection you and I share and one that provides a sense of stability in a world that seems to be a bit sideways these days. To me, those who authentically live the Western lifestyle and its values, represent the very best of our America. It’s one of the reasons I was drawn to this job. The opportunity to help promote this way of life is a privilege. So, when I think of who I am, I ammy mother and father. I ammy hometown and the people in it. But most of all I am grateful to be here. I look forward to meeting you and along with my team, sharing your stories.

Becky Hillier is the Director of Communications &Media for the PRCA. She worked for more than two decades as a TV anchor South Dakota, and Wisconsin. She most recently was the station manager of KULR-8 Television in Billings, Mont. She is wife to Mitch and mom to Garret and McKenna. and reporter in Montana,

COWBOY GRILLE WITH TANNER BARTH

Damian Brennan may be a rookie in ProRodeo, but the Injune, Australia, saddle bronc rider looks far from it in the arena. On June 15, Brennan won the Battle Born Broncs in Fallon, Nev. to earn himself $7,924. He currently leads in the running for the Resistol Rookie of the Year race and is 19th in the PRCA | RAM World Standings with $35,120.

How’d you get your start in rodeo? Damian: It all started for me back in Australia, where my dad was a pickup man. I had a few buddies around home that used to get on saddle bronc horses a lot. I used to go get on horses at their houses and it really kicked started from there for me. When did you know you could make a career out of the sport of rodeo? Damian: I think once I got over here to Western Texas College in Snyder and started doing well at the college level. Then on my permit year I had a pretty good year and made it to the Permit Challenge. I’d have to say probably my permit year was when I thought you know I can do this, I can probably make a living doing this. Why did you decide saddle bronc riding would be your event? Damian: Mainly I just grew up on a ranch and rode horses my whole life in a saddle. That just really felt more natural to me I suppose and why I ended up doing saddle bronc riding. Who’s someone you look up to in the sport of rodeo?

DAMIAN BRENNAN

Damian: I really look up to (ProRodeo Hall of Famer) Dave Appleton, he’s a big one for me coming from Australia as well. He kind of started the trend for us Australians coming over to the States. He’s one of my idols for sure. What’s one rodeo you want to win before your career is over? Damian: Obviously winning the NFR is the main goal for almost everyone. I’m also headed to Calgary here in a month and I think that would be a great one to kick off the bucket list of rodeo wins. Why did you decide to buy your PRCA card at this point in your career? Damian: I just feel like I’m riding really good right now and you only get to rodeo for so long. I’m already 23 and not getting any younger, so I thought I might as well give it a crack now while I’m here. Why did you come to the United States to begin your rodeo career? Damian: If you want to take rodeo seriously and make a living from it you sort of have to come to America. There’s rodeo in Australia, but it’s more of a hobby I suppose. But as for America you can make a living doing it. That’s one of the main reasons I came over here. What’s your favorite restaurant? Damian: If I had to choose one it would probably have to be Texas Roadhouse. Do you have a favorite candy? Damian: I’m a big fan of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Those things are pretty dang good. What’s your go-to movie? Damian: I would have to say Step Brothers . I love it, it’s just a good comedy that makes you laugh every time you watch it. What was the make of your first car? Damian: I drove a 2001 Dodge minivan for a long time. I just bought myself a new pickup and camper two weeks ago. What’s your favorite TV show or series? Damian: Yellowstone is probably one of my favorites. I really enjoyed that show. What’s your favorite holiday? Damian: Christmas is my favorite holiday because you get to be together with family and see everyone that you haven’t seen in a while. What type of music do you like listening to? Damian: Country is probably my favorite, but I’m a bit all over the place honestly. I like rap as well and all different kinds of music. What do you enjoy doing when you’re not rodeoing? Damian: I love ranching. That is what I really like to do when I’m not rodeoing. I just like riding horses and working cows mainly.

SHORT ROUND Seven-time World Champ Sage Kimzey sidelined with shoulder injury Out for the Year

S age Kimzey, a seven-time PRCA Bull Riding World since high school, and the injury came to a head when he was bucked off Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s Severe Weather at the Parker County Sheriff’s Posse Frontier Days and PRCA Rodeo, June 10 in Weatherford, Texas. “I have been riding with hurt shoulder for a real long time,” said Kimzey, 27. Kimzey saw Dr. Tandy Freeman in Dallas on June 14 and learned that season-ending surgery would be required on his shoulder. “I have multiple tears in my labrum, and I have got a totally torn supraspinatus (which is one of the rotator cuff muscles),” Kimzey said. “I have a displaced bicep tendon and a broken collarbone. I also have some other rotator cuff damage. It is a culmination over the years. I think most of it probably happened during the wrecks when I was in high school. “I never had surgery. I just took time off and it was always good enough to ride.” Kimzey is third in the PRCA | RAM World Standings with $115,633 and qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo eight consecutive years. Kimzey also has won five of the past seven PRCA Division 1 Xtreme Bulls Tour titles, including last year. Despite the setback, Kimzey was able to keep things in perspective. “I feel extremely blessed that I made it 10 years because Champion, including in 2021, is out for the remainder of the 2022 season with a left shoulder injury. Kimzey had been bothered by a left shoulder injury

most guys don’t make it eight years with a bum shoulder,” Kimzey said. “It has been an incredible ride with my messed-up shoulder, but I’m definitely ready to have it fixed. It will not be too long, and I will back in the arena. “I’m just going to enjoy the time at home right now, especially with my little man (Steele, who is 4½ months) being born this year. This will give me time at home with my wife (Alexis) and son. That will be different, but really good. I’m just really going to enjoy that time and focus on all the good that comes out of this.”

2022 National Finals Steer Roping at Kansas Star For the ninth year in a row, the National Finals Steer Roping will take place at the Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane, Kan. The Kansas Star, a favorite of steer ropers and NSFR fans, offers an electric atmosphere for the Legacy steer roping event, prior to the final five rounds of the NFSR on Nov. 5.

The 2022 edition takes place Nov. 4-5 and pits the Top 15 steer ropers in the PRCA vying for a world championship and a share of the record $500,000 purse. “We are thrilled to be back at the Kansas Star for the Nationals Finals Steer Roping and to be able to increase the prize money at the NFSR to $500,000,” said PRCA CEO Tom Glause. “This is an opportunity for the Top 15 steer ropers in the PRCA to rope for the most money ever at the NFSR.”

“The steer ropers love that place (the Kansas Star), and it is great,” said J.P. Wickett, the steer roping representative on PRCA’s Contestant Executive Council. The NFSR purse has more than doubled since 2014. A year ago, Cole Patterson won his first PRCA Steer Roping World Championship, finishing atop the standings with $190,242, a single-season steer roping earnings record.

She

ALL-AROUND COWBOY

Trevor Brazile King of Cowboys going into ProRodeo Hall of Fame BY TRACY RENCK T revor Brazile is the gold standard for PRCA cowboys – past and present. Brazile, the King of PRCA cowboys with 26 world championships, heads up a

star-studded 2022 induction class of 11 for the ProRodeo Hall of Fame July 16 in Colorado Springs, Colo. “It’s pretty hard to get me speechless, but this honor has done that. It’s one of those awards that goes past just your era,” Brazile said. “You’re enshrined with the greats from every era in a sports Hall of Fame. That is probably the coolest thing. We can talk about Toots Mansfield and Jim Shoulders all these guys, but now to be in the same Hall as the likes of guys like that. That’s pretty cool. “You can hear about the Hall and talk about it, but I don’t think it will ever really sink in, the magnitude of it until you get there. You can think off the top of your head guys who are enshrined there and I think it will all sink in when I get there.” Brazile, ProRodeo’s only $7-million cowboy, has 26 gold buckles that include a PRCA-record 14 in all-around (2002-04, 2006 15, 2018), three in tie-down roping (2007, 2009-10) and one in team roping (2010) to go with the eight National Finals Steer Roping gold buckles in 2006-07, 2011, 2013-15 and 2019-20. By Round 4 of the 2020 NFSR in Mulvane, Kan., Brazile reached and passed the $7 million milestone by earning $7,577 after placing second with a 9.3-second run. He earned $27,150 for the day, including winning Round 3 with a 9.9-second run. “I think that (passing the $7 million mark in career earnings) is one of the biggest things I have ever done,” Brazile said. Brazile also has a PRCA record 74 career total round wins at the Wrangler National

Finals Rodeo – in tie-down roping and team roping – and steer roping. Brazile has won 36 rounds at the NFSR, second only to Guy Allen’s 48. “Never, no sir,” said Brazile when asked if he thought he would have an unmatched career in ProRodeo. “I think hard work had a lot to do with it because I was never the most talented guy out there. Rodeo is a super humbling sport I don’t care who you are. By no means did I think I was the most talented guy in any field. I just know where my talents come from, and I tried to do the best I could to be a good steward of rodeo and mix my work with it. “Records are made to be broken and that’s what fuels the next generation. I would be super honored to have a part in that in that motivation for the next generation of rodeo cowboys.”

“It’s pretty hard to get me speechless, but this honor has done that. It’s one of those awards that goes past just your era. You’re enshrined with the greats from every era in a sports Hall of Fame. That is probably the coolest thing.”

BAREBACK RIDER

Bobby Mote Bareback rider now has time to celebrate BY TRACY RENCK U pon his own admission, star bareback rider Bobby Mote never really took time to celebrate his success in the arena. Well, now the four-time PRCAWorld Champion closed. So, for rodeo to tell me good job, good ride, it means a lot to me. This gives me a chance to reflect on all of it.” Mote, who retired in 2017 at the age of 41, qualified for 15 consecutive NFRs from 2001-2015 and was reserve world champion in 2001 and 2006. “Since I decided I wanted to rodeo when I was 15 my

life has revolved around rodeo,” Mote said. “Things have been added to it, like family and life and I’m still involved with rodeo. Rodeo has a meant a lot to my family because one way or the other, directly, or indirectly it has put food on the table for long time for us. Connections I have gained through rodeo, the experiences I have had all started with a dream to be a bareback rider. “One step after another and the next thing you know you look back and somebody fromColorado Springs calls you and tells you that you have been chosen to be in the ProRodeo Hall of Fame. It is a big deal. It really is.” While representing the Columbia River Circuit, Mote also won the RAMNational Circuit Finals Rodeo in 2011 and 2013.

(2002, 2007, 2009-2010), can stop and smell the roses as he’s being inducted in the ProRodeo Hall of Fame July 16 in Colorado Springs, Colo. “I have thought about it a lot lately (being selected for induction into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame) because I will have a speech to give,” Mote said. “I have been thinking about what it means to me and what I will say. I didn’t give it a lot of thought while I was rodeoing and one of the things that occurred to me is that I wasn’t one to celebrate a lot when I won, or I made a good ride. I stayed pretty even. “I felt like I was prepared, and I expected to win and then I would win and then I was always thinking how I could improve. I was always critical of myself. As far as bareback riding goes for me there isn’t a next thing. That chapter is

TEAM ROPER

PRCA ProRodeo file photo by Mike Copeman

Bobby Harris Roping his way into Hall of Fame BY PATRICK EVERSON Special to the ProRodeo Sports News B obby Harris is a legend of rodeo lore. He reached the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in four different decades as a team roper, and qualified for the National Finals Steer Roping in three different get a direct phone call telling me, that was really nice, really an exciting thing. And that’s the way it should be.” In case you couldn’t tell, Harris isn’t a big fan of all the newfangled ways in which people communicate. He’s by no means old, turning 59 earlier this year. He just likes some things to stick with tradition, including that unexpected Hall of Fame call. And unexpected or not, the call was thoroughly decades.

“It was a total surprise. At that time of year, you always look for who made it – it’s coming out, see. But I wasn’t expecting it at all.” – BOBBY HARRIS and you’re waiting to

deserved. Harris qualified for 18 NFRs, first doing so in 1981, when it was still in Oklahoma City. He made his last NFR trek in 2010. Harris qualified every year from 1984-95, with the NFR moving to Las Vegas in 1985. It was in that 11 year stretch that he achieved his career peak, partnering with Tee Woolman to win the 1991 team roping world championship. “We’d been close to championships before that. We’d won the NFR average, set a record in the average, had a world-record fastest time,” Harris said. “But when you win it, you’re just really excited. A lot of people have won a lot, but never won a world championship. “So, it was fantastic. Kind of like getting that call for the Hall of Fame. This is awesome.”

But at his core, in his heart, Harris is a rodeo fan. So, each April, he always likes to check in and see who got voted into the latest class of the ProRodeo Hall of Fame. He enjoys seeing his peers and his mentors bestowed with such a high honor. This year, though, something interesting happened. On that April day, Harris’ phone rang. “I received a phone call telling me I’d been elected into the Hall of Fame,” Harris said, noting several Hall of Fame committee members were on the line, including Ote Berry, Don Gay and Randy Corley. “It was a total surprise. At that time of year, you always look for who made it – it’s coming out, and you’re waiting to see. But I wasn’t expecting it at all. “How can you ask for anything better in this world we live in?
