Brazile tops rankings

By Clay Corbett | Published Saturday, July 13, 2013

After a busy July 4 week, 10-time world champion Trevor Brazile remains No. 1 in the 2013 world all-around cowboy standings with $109,890 in winnings.

Rhen Richards of Utah is a distant second on the list with $59,663 in winnings.

The PRCA/WPRA conducted 32 shows throughout North America last week, usually referred to as Cowboy Christmas, with $3.3 million paid out to competitors.

Brazile was the biggest winner for the week, earning $28,828 in team roping and tie-down roping combined.

Exactly $23,526 of those earnings came from team roping, with help from his partner Patrick Smith of Lipan.

Brazile has been on a tear the last couple of weeks, jumping from 39th to third in the PRCA team roping heading title race. Smith, the heeler, has moved from 33rd to third in the world standings.

Former Decatur resident Chuck Logue, who now resides in New Braunfels, will be inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame this Saturday in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Logue, the 1990 world bareback riding champion, will be joined by four others in the 2013 class.
