Standings Shuffle: 17 Cowboys Move Up

Warm weather and big payouts drew many ProRodeo cowboys south, as five of the six rodeos held last week were south of the Mason-Dixon line from March 6-11. Worth a collective $295,583, a handful of cowboys climbed the 2018 PRCA World Standings within the Top 15.

Veteran and rookie cowboys know it’s easier to maintain a position at the top than it is to play catch-up when trying to qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Every dollar counts, and making the Top 15 early establishes a solid base and builds a cowboy’s confidence as the season picks up pace.

Nobody knows that better than team roping heeler Jonathan Torres (pictured above), who moved from 25th to 15th thanks to winning $2,420 at the Arcadia All-Fla Championship Rodeo. 

The following cowboys saw their position in the PRCA World Standings improve from March 6-11.

Seven Spots

• Boudreaux Campbell moved from 20th to 13th in bull riding. 

Six Spots

• Travis Dorman moved from 16th to 10th in team roping heading. 

Five Spots

• Tony Reina moved from 16th to 11th in steer roping. 

Four Spots

• Bradley Harter moved from 14th to 10th in saddle bronc riding. 

Three Spots

• Shay Good moved from 11th to eighth in steer roping. 
• Roscoe Jarboe moved from 14th to 11th in bull riding. 
• Jesse Clark moved from 16th to 13th in tie-down roping. 

Two Spots

• Kory Kidd V moved from eighth to sixth in team roping heading. 
• Bradley Massey moved from 13th to 11th in team roping heeling. 
• Jeremy Elshere moved from 13th to 11th in saddle bronc riding. 

One Spot

• Bill Tutor moved from third to second in bareback riding.
• Rusty Wright moved from eighth to seventh in saddle bronc riding. 

Cowboys on the bubble for a spot in the Top 15 can find themselves just a few dollars short of making a WNFR qualification. The following cowboys climbed the standings to No. 16 this past week:

• Steer wrestler Will Lummus moved from 24th to 16th and is $2,834 away from breaking into the Top 15.
• Team roping heeler Brad Culpepper moved from 21st to 16th and is $391 away from breaking into the Top 15.
• Steer roper Vin Fisher Jr. moved from 17th to 16th and is $353 away from breaking into the Top 15. 
• Bull rider Tyler Bingham moved from 17th to 16th and is $2,913 away from breaking into the Top 15. 

With Rodeo Austin (Texas) under way and the Southeastern Livestock Exposition in Montgomery, Ala., kicking off this week, the outcomes of these rodeos and others are sure to impact the world standings. 

Check back with next week to see who the new leaders are in the world standings.
