For the Record: Stephenville

by Matt Naber | Sep 28, 2018

Stephenville, Texas, has more PRCA cowboys per square foot than anywhere in the world, according to the Stephenville Chamber of Commerce. 

Home to the likes of brothers Jacobs and Sterling Crawley, and many other talented cowboys, the Cowboy Capital of the World PRCA Rodeo boasts a rich history of rodeo competition.

This iconic rodeo was ongoing for decades before becoming a PRCA-sanctioned rodeo in 1970. Since, numerous records have been set and broken as cowboys have raced to the finish line of the regular season in hopes of qualifying for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

Bareback rider Steven Dent set the Stephenville record in 2014 with his 91-point ride on Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s Dirty Jacket. Dent has made eight trips to the Wrangler NFR (2007-08, 2010-14 and 2017). He’s on track to make his ninth qualification, sitting safely in eighth place in the 2018 PRCA | RAM World Standings. 

Dent’s position in the Top 15 may be safe, but his record might not be. Any of the following Stephenville records could get beaten Sept. 28-30 in one of the final, high-dollar rodeos of the regular season.
