1. Masters to undergo knee surgery, out 6-8 months

            Two-time and reigning World Champion Team Roper Chad Masters injured his left knee March 1 while steer wrestling at the Timed Event Championship of the World in Guthrie, Okla., and will be out 6-8 months.

            Masters will undergo surgery March 5 in Dallas to repair a ruptured patellar tendon, a torn MCL, and medial and lateral meniscus tears. A subsequent ACL surgery will be scheduled at a later date.

            Dr. Tandy Freeman delivered the verdict to Masters on March 4 after examining the MRI taken earlier in the day, and will be performing the surgery.

Masters had hoped for better news, but understood from the moment of the injury that it was going to have serious implications.

            “My knee started swelling up immediately,” Masters said, “and it’s still pretty swollen. I’m not in a lot of pain. I’m good as long as I sit still.”

            Masters, of Cedar Hill, Tenn., won his second gold buckle as a team roping header last December paired with Clay O’Brien Cooper; they won the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo average championship with a time of 73.4 seconds on 10 head.

For the 2013 season, Masters returned to Jade Corkill, the current world champion heeler, with whom he had partnered in 2009-10.

It is not known what Corkill will do about enlisting a new partner while Masters recovers. Corkill roped with Kaleb Driggers a year ago and Driggers has just recently returned to action after missing more than a month due to a broken right leg. Driggers finished just $1,211 behind Masters in the final 2012 heading standings.


2.  Gillespie’s consistency paying big dividends

            George Gillespie IV worked for seven years clearing land for the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management in the high forests of southwest Oregon, which is to say he knows a long uphill climb when he sees one.

At 32, he is a bit more than a decade removed from his days at Eastern Oregon University and yet he is steadfastly working his way up the trail toward his ultimate goal, summiting at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

“It is what I have always wanted,” Gillespie said. “It was my original plan out of college to go hard and try to make the NFR, but I got a job as an excavator, then I got married for a couple of years, bought a house; my life went a different direction.

“When the marriage ended I just decided that I would go back to rodeo. If I didn’t make it, well that was OK. At least I’d know I’d given myself a chance to do what I loved. The last couple of years I’ve started riding better and winning more. Now I feel like if I can stay healthy there’s no reason why I can’t make a run at the NFR.”

With a bareback riding win at the March 2-3 Parada del Sol Rodeo in Scottsdale, Ariz. – his second title there in four years – and a second-place result at the Avi River Stampede in Fort Mohave, Ariz., Gillespie is 17th in the world standings and climbing.

It has been a season built on consistency. Since the 2013 PRCA season began last October, Gillespie has competed in 21 rodeos and earned checks in 14 of them.

Consistency? In Scottsdale, Gillespie tied Tyson Thompson for a share of the bareback riding title with a 79-point ride on Salt River Rodeo’s North Star, and he was second in Fort Mohave with another 79-pointer on Honeycutt Rodeo’s Hangin Tree.

This is all a wee bit of a surprise from a guy who didn’t buy his PRCA card until he was 26 and didn’t start pressing his competitive campaign much out of the California Circuit until 2010. But he is truly after it now.

Gillespie has moved up the world standings in each of the last three years, from 102nd in 2009, to 42nd in 2010, to 34th in 2011, to 29th a year ago – when he had 12 wins at PRCA rodeos – and now the Placerville, Calif., cowboy is at his highest point yet.

“I got a new rigging for this season and I’m working on fine tuning a few things,” Gillespie said. “Even when you get low on funds you can’t allow yourself to focus on the money. Every once in awhile you have to step back and remind yourself why you are doing this. If I wanted to be rich, I guess I should have gone to medical school.

“You have to stay balanced and keep your mind on what you need to do to be successful, so when an opportunity does present itself, you can take advantage of it. You can’t be sporadic in your approach. The really great riders like Bobby Mote and Kaycee Feild are great every time they compete.”

The other champions at the $58,263 rodeo in Scottsdale were steer wrestler Trey Nahrgang (3.9 seconds), team ropers Shawn Bessette and Sid Sporer (4.9 seconds), saddle bronc rider Cody Taton (79 points), tie-down roper Cort Smith (8.4 seconds), bull rider Cody Samora (86 points) and barrel racers Kassidy Dennison and Megan Lewis (17.70 seconds each).

The champions at the $52,987 rodeo in Fort Mohave were bareback rider Jared Bain (80 points), steer wrestler Trevor Duhon (4.0 seconds), team ropers Kyle Roberts and Johnny Salvo (5.4 seconds), saddle bronc rider Levi Berry (84 points), tie-down ropers Jordan Ketscher and Blake Hirdes (8.4 seconds each), bull rider Tag Elliott (82 points) and barrel racer Fallon Taylor (15.42 seconds).

• Odd stat of the week: Ketscher and Hirdes shared the all-around title in Scottsdale, based on their second-place finish in the team roping (and having competed in tie-down roping). They then shared the tie-down roping title in Fort Mohave (while winning no money in team roping).


3. No gray area in assessing Adam’s roping

It’s probably a good thing when a rodeo cowboy can keep his perspective and adopt a philosophical point of view.

If you have just won two rodeos in the same weekend for the first time in nearly six years, set an arena record and earned more than $3,000 – in rodeos that you have unofficialed – well, philosophical might seem like the only decent strategy.

“Unofficially, it will help me pay my bills,” tie-down roper Adam Gray said with a chuckle. “You have to decide when you enter whether to count them (toward the 75- rodeo limit a tie-down roper has to determine his world standings placement). You try to go where the money is.

“A couple of years ago (2011) I qualified for Wrangler National Finals Rodeo without winning a single (regular-season) rodeo and in 2010 I won a bunch of rodeos but ended up 19th and didn’t make it to the NFR.”

More of a glass-half-full guy anyway, Gray chose to see his wins at the Matagorda County Fair & Rodeo in Bay City, Texas, and the Glen Rose (Texas) PRCA Rodeo as a sign of good things to come (apart from that bill paying), after what he characterized as “a rough start to the season.”

Gray has official earnings of $4,648 which has him just outside the world standings top 50, a bit of a disappointment after he won the Wrangler NFR average title last December.

His winning time of 7.6 seconds (with two full wraps) in Bay City broke the arena record and he shared the title in Glen Rose with Colton Childs – each of them completing their run in 8.5 seconds.

“The last time I won two rodeos in the same weekend was my second weekend on my permit back in 2007,” Gray said. “I won in Greenville and Mesquite (both in Texas).”

There is a certain pattern here: Of the 24 PRCA rodeos Gray has won since he bought his permit, 15 of those have been in his home state of Texas. He was born in Wichita Falls, went to college at Texas Tech in Lubbock and now resides in Seymour.

And Gray was not the only Texas cowboy to leave Bay City with an arena record in his possession. Caleb Mitchell of Pollock and Tyler McKnight of Wells combined for a record run of 3.8 seconds to win the team roping.

The other champions at this $40,986 rodeo in Bay City were bareback rider Clint Cannon (89 points), steer wrestler Nick Guy (3.7 seconds), saddle bronc rider Hardy Braden (83 points), bull rider Bonner Blue Bolton (88 points) and barrel racer Lauren Cox (14.67 seconds).

The champions at the $42,391 rodeo in Glen Rose were bareback riders Caine Riddle and Bill Tutor (80 points each), steer wrestler Hunter Cure (4.2 seconds), team ropers Turtle Powell/Dugan Kelly, Clay Tryan/Travis Graves and Calvin Brevik/Travis Woodard (4.6 seconds each), saddle bronc rider Ty Kirkland (81 points), bull riders Elliot Jacoby and Bryce Barrios (85 points each) and barrel racer Tasha Welsh (15.70 seconds).

4. News and notes from the rodeo trail

Oakdale, Calif., cowboy Daniel Green earned his third Timed Event Championship of the World title on March 3, completing the 25-run marathon in Guthrie, Okla., with a time of 313.6 seconds and earnings of $52,000. “Mission accomplished,” said Green, 40, who also won in 2002 and 2008. “It wasn’t perfect by any means. Many times it’s not, but that’s the Timed Event Championship. It’s adapt, adjust and overcome. It’s the guy that perseveres, and I just kept my mind set. These kids were coming in here and roping fast, and I just kept solid. I’ve been here enough to know.” Green, competing in his 17th TEC, finished 30.3 seconds ahead of runner-up Paul David Tierney with six-time TEC champion Trevor Brazile in third place. Tierney and Brazile each earned $25,000 in this 29th annual event in which each man competes in all five timed-event disciplines: team roping-heading, team roping-heeling, tie-down roping, steer wrestling and steer roping … A memorial service for David Glover, a four-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo bull riding qualifier, is scheduled for 4 p.m. on March 16 at the Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum in Claremore, Okla. Donna McSpadden, Sharon Shoulders and Marvin Paul Shoulderswill officiate at the ceremony with Bobby Steiner and Don Endsley.

His flamboyant riding style (www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLZeCwSjcPU) and daring dismounts prompted rodeo fans to compare Henson to the likes of Casey Tibbs. “I am tickled to be a part of this event preserving rodeo and the cowboy way,” Henson said. “I’m a cowboy and North Dakota likes cowboys!” Former PRCA bull rider Tom Solberg is one of four modern-era rodeo cowboys nominated for induction into the NDCHOF; the ceremony is scheduled for June 22 in Medora … Steer wrestler Austin Courmier of Oakwood, Texas, the son four-time Wrangler NFR qualifier Dan Courmier, is out for 4-6 months following surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee … The California Six Pac Rodeos are offering a $4,000 bonus and a silver buckle to the competitors in each event who have the best overall results in Oakdale (April 13-14), Red Bluff (April 19-21), Clovis (April 26-28), Redding (May 15-18), Hayward (May 17-19), Livermore (June 8-9) and Reno, Nev.

“I love that moment just before the gate cracks, when you don’t know what’s going to happen. Your heart starts beating fast and it goes real quiet in your head. The crowd starts yelling and just at that moment is when you have to get up and perform.”

– PRCA bullfighter Clint Hopping, telling KWTX-TV of Waco, Texas, what it’s like to do his job.
