IN THEIR WORDS WESTYN HUGHES Injury behind him, Hughes eyes return to NFR I t was finally good to get the Westyn Hughes was determined to make the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in 2020 after

the mentality I can’ t let one slip here, I’m limited, but when I don’t do well, I’m not near as mad as I used to be because I know I gave 100%mentally and leading up to the rodeo. Giving 100% physically was never a problem, but doing some of the minor details that’s what it really takes to win. Everyone at this level does the big things. What separates the guys who win a lot and the guys who win a little bit are the small details. I have two horses, one for shorter scores and a long-score horse. The horse I rode at the NFR and half the rodeos I was at last year is Iron, 14, owned by Cloy Swarren. The other is Gunny, 14. I keep him out here on the West Coast for longer starts and scores. He’s mine. I bought him from Josh and Ashley Foutch. The first part of the season was pretty rough. I went to 12 rodeos in a row and didn’t win a check. I think I’ve placed at the last 10 out of 11. Hopefully that gives me good momentum going into the summer. After Redding, I head to Cave Creek (Ariz.). It’s my third trip out there. I was fortunate to win it back in 2017. I like those rodeos out West. Last year, Cave Creek had an awesome committee to put everything on the line to give us something to go to. I feel we should go back and try and support them.

monkey off my back and get that first back number (at the Wrangler NFR). I’ve been working at it since 2016. I had a couple injuries and surgery in between. It finally all lined up and worked out for me. I had back surgery on Sept. 9, 2019.

finishing 2019 on the sidelines due to a back injury. The tie- down roper from Caldwell, Texas, followed through, qualifying for the $10 million rodeo in Arlington, Texas, and finishing the season with career bests in money won ($146,968) and overall finish (sixth in the PRCA | RAMWorld Standings). He won Round 8 at the NFR and earned $86,577 at the Finals. Hughes, 23, had to overcome two ruptured discs in his back to make those Finals. This season, he’s still rolling. As of May 11, Hughes was fifth in the world standings with $34,509. Hughes competes in the California Circuit and had won money at 10 of his last 11 rodeos heading into the Redding (Calif.) Rodeo.

It had been bothering me all year and it finally gave out on me at Kennewick, Wash. I was 11th in the standings at the time and had to sit back and watch. It makes it a little sweeter due to the bitterness I had to deal with early on. My back actually felt about 20 times better the moment I woke up from surgery. I was walking around 10 minutes after the surgery. I could barely walk in there that morning. The way 2019 ended drove me a ton because I also missed three weeks in July that same year. I was sitting really good, then had a doctor-release in July, had a good month in August, then in September it went out on me. Having to deal with all of it – my winning percentages were really good, I just couldn’t go to enough rodeos – I think it made me more disciplined because I realized I might not get to go to every rodeo throughout the season, so the ones I go to I dang sure have to make them count. I think what’s crazy is that honestly I have

COWBOY GRILLE WITH TRACY RENCK

H ow did you get involved with rodeo? Colton: We were always around it, so I guess we didn’t have much of a choice. My dad (Sam) owned the Rawhide Pro Rodeo Company. We grew up in Piffard, N.Y., (between Rochester and Buffalo) and my dad was always putting on rodeos. Why did you choose steer wrestling? Steer wrestler Colton Swearingen, 21, began the 2021 season on his PRCA permit and was leading the permit standings with $3,039 before buying his PRCA card in April. Swearingen, 20, is the younger brother of National Finals Rodeo bull rider Daylon Swearingen. Colton initially went to Oklahoma to attend college and in the last year, with the help of four-time National Finals Rodeo qualifying steer wrestler Sean Mulligan, his steer wrestling skills have improved immensely.

COLTON SWEARINGEN

Colton: I’m living in Coleman, Okla., and I’ve gotten to where I’m pretty good friends with (PRCA steer wrestler) Sean Mulligan and his nephew (Tyler Ravenscroft), and I started doing more and more steer wrestling in the last year. It’s an event I had more opportunity in. Sean has been a big help for me. I bulldogged OK when I first came to Oklahoma, and in the last year it has gotten to where it’s a lot better and a lot of that has to do with Sean. Sean and Tyler and I have been traveling together and rodeoing. I’m 6-foot, around 160 to 170 pounds, so technique is a big thing for me in steer wrestling. Did you do any other rodeo events growing up? Colton: I did ride broncs in high school and my dad was a bronc rider, but I quit riding broncs after my junior year of high school. What kind of goals do you have for yourself this year? Colton: I think I’m just going to ease around in the (Prairie) Circuit and maybe venture out a little bit. I just want to get my feet wet a little bit and try and win enough to where I can get to go to the winter rodeos next year. My main goal is to get to the NFR one day. What rodeo do you want to compete in that you haven’t been to yet? Colton: I really enjoy traveling and seeing all the different places. I would like to go to Pendleton (Ore.) and Cheyenne (Wyo.). Everybody talks about those rodeos and it seems like they would be cool rodeos to go to. Those are bucket-list rodeos for anybody, really. What horse are you using? Colton: Her name is Holly. That’s Sean Mulligan’s horse. She’s a very good horse. What kind of advice has your brother Daylon offered you now that you’re on the PRCA trail? Colton: We talked a lot when I told him what my plan was that I wanted to do in rodeo. He offered advice to me on what would be the best way to go about things. I don’t think he’s crazy for riding bulls because he makes a lot of money at it. Where’s your go-to place to eat? Colton: Any good Mexican restaurant. There’s one here in Durant (Okla.) called El Kanelo. When I’m there I get carne asada. My favorite beverage to drink is Coca-Cola. What’s your favorite dessert? Colton: I like cookie cake. What’s your favorite movie? Colton: “The Cowboy Way.” I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve seen that movie. What’s your favorite holiday? Colton: Christmas. My family now is pretty spread out, and normally that’s a time

we all try and get together. My mom (Carrie) and dad still have a place in New York, but mom is a traveling nurse and she’s in Oklahoma right now, but they will probably try to go back to New York this summer. We have a bunch of family in New York, and Daylon lives in Texarkana (Texas).

Are you a phone call guy or text guy? Colton: A phone call guy. I want to call you. What would your life be like without a phone with a GPS in it? Colton: It would be pretty confusing, because that’s the only way I get anywhere. What type of music do you listen to? Colton : I like country music. I like Cross Canadian Ragweed and I like to listen to the Randy Rogers (Band), and people like that.

PRCA ProRodeo file photos ProRodeo Hall of Famer Ty Murray stands next to his likeness on the tail of a Western Pacific airplane. Mur- ray loved to do what he could to expand the reach of the sport of rodeo.

Ty Murray’s likeness helped introduce rodeo to the masses PRCA When the Ruled the Skies

BY TRACY RENCK P roRodeo Hall of Famer Ty Murray set the gold standard in ProRodeo during his time of winning nine world titles – seven in the all-around (1989-94 and 1998) and two in bull riding (1993 and 1998). Murray’s accomplishments weren’t just

noticed in the rodeo arena. He also drew the attention of national companies. In March 1996, Murray’s likeness riding a bull was on the tail of a Western Pacific airplane that also displayed “Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association” across the body of the aircraft. “It was really cool,” Murray told ProRodeo Sports News . “They took me to the unveiling of it and I stood up there on the wing. It was a really cool picture, and I was honored to be a part of it. That’s something you never think of happening. It was impressive in person because you don’t realize how big (the likeness) is.” Murray said he was looking to push the envelope when it came to introducing rodeo to a mainstream audience. “I always loved doing everything I could that reached beyond just the circles of rodeo,” he said. “I just felt like it helped the sport. It helped with the recognition of cowboys and their talents every time you were able to do something that wasn’t in our little microcosm of rodeo. It’s neat when you’re able to do something that people who are not directly connected to rodeo get to see and think about the sport and think about cowboys.” Some of Murray’s other advertising endeavors included being on a Raisin Bran box and a bottle of wine. He also appeared on “Dancing with the Stars” in 2009 and made it to the semifinals. “Being on the Raisin Bran box was a great opportunity, and then getting to be on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ was great, as well,” Murray said.

SHORT ROUND ProRodeo Hall of Famer George Doak was 83 Bullfighter passes

B ullfighter George Doak, who was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame in Colorado Springs, Colo., in 2000, passed away April 27. He was 83. Doak and fellow bullfighter Junior Meek were inducted into the Hall of Fame together. The two bullfighters were destined to be together. Both started their bullfighting careers as a means of trading entry fees for the bull riding, although Doak also entered bareback riding. Doak, born May 18, 1937, in Fort Worth, Texas, started his professional career in 1957 in Cowtown, N.J. One of the first televised rodeos, Cowtown also hosted what may have been the first clown training camp at a bull riding school. Doak twice fought bulls at the National Finals Rodeo (1971, 1977) and for many years worked the National High School Finals Rodeo and College National Finals Rodeo. He was a bullfighter until 1981. “It’s going to be great because we are inducted together,” Doak told ProRodeo Sports News in 2000 before he and Meek were inducted. “From the time I was a kid, I wanted to be a bullfighter. Being voted into the Hall of Fame just makes the circle of my career.” Doak and Meek, born April 4, 1936, in Cleburne, Texas, joined forces in 1963 to book rodeos as a team. That marked the first time two bullfighters worked as partners. The list of rodeos they worked, together and separately, reads like a “Who’s Who” in the rodeo world: Fort Worth, Texas, Pendleton, Ore., Kissimmee, Fla., Phoenix, San Francisco, Cheyenne, Wyo., and Denver. Doak was preceded in death by son, Steven Lyle Doak.

Doak

Doak is survived by wife, Reada Kay Doak; sons George (Laquitta) Doak Jr. and Michael (Laura) Doak; stepson, Derron (Amy) Vincik; stepdaughter, Lenece (Raymond) Smith; grandchildren Colby Doak, Cassie Hamlin, Samantha Doak, Amberly Andress, Nicolas Doak, Jordan Johnson, Katelyn Macalla, Kelsey Vincik, Kingsley Vincik, Skye Smith and Steele Smith; great-grandchildren Jett and Jake Doak, Chase Hamlin, Ballie Sessom, Gage and Brielynn Andress, and Royer and Amberi Doak. Doak’s funeral will be at 2 p.m. (CT), May 18 at the Lone Star Cowboy Church, 21627 Eva St., Montgomery, Texas. Memorials for Doak can be sent to the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund, 101 ProRodeo Dr., Colorado Springs, Colo., 80919 and/or the Rodeo Cowboy Alumni, Scholarship Fund, 6064 Appleton Rd., SW, Albuquerque, N.M., 87105.

ProRodeo Sports News 5/14/2021 Tribute to Chris LeDoux opens at Hall of Fame “A Tribute to Chris LeDoux” opened at the ProRodeo Hall of Fame’s 101 Gallery on May 1 in Colorado Springs, Colo. The exhibit consists of photographs, memorabilia and other items from the private collection of Bill and Dona Vold Larsen. The exhibit includes photos of LeDoux’s rodeo competition, concert photographs, photos of his artwork and other miscellaneous items. The exhibit includes two original artworks by LeDoux that are pencil drawings. The exhibit will be up through early fall. LeDoux was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame in 2005 and is the only dual inductee in the Hall – inducted in bareback riding and in the notable category. LeDoux won the PRCA bareback riding world championship in 1976 and was an award-winning country music artist. In early summer, the ProRodeo Hall of Fame will add a small exhibit to the gallery showcasing the history of Western heritage and rodeo of the Pikes Peak Region and the city of Colorado Springs to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Colorado Springs on July 31.
