Nogueira’s all-around title headlines Round 10 madness

LAS VEGAS – It’s party time in Brazil – and for good reason.
A country with deep rodeo roots finally has its first world champion in Junior Nogueira.  The team roping heeler won the all-around gold buckle during the 10th and final night of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER.  “I’m very happy, and not just for myself, but for my family, friends and everyone in Brazil,” Nogueira said. “I hope this gives kids in Brazil, and around the world, inspiration that anything is possible if you put your trust in God.”
