MULVANE, Kan. – Breaking records isn’t what steer roper Rocky Patterson is all about.  The humble Pratt, Kan., cowboy just enjoys competing in an event he loves.  Whether Patterson likes to boast or not, no one in the PRCA has ever had a more lucrative steer roping season than he just completed. Patterson won his fourth gold buckle with a single-season steer roping record of $141,350. He reached that milestone by earning $56,432 at the 2016 Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping Nov. 11-12.
“It’s big,” said Patterson, 50, about his latest victory.  Patterson broke the previous single-season steer roping record of $121,112, set by Trevor Brazile in 2015.
