Chris Neal’s FUTURE STARS calf roping champion was crowned last month at Lazy E Arena in Guthrie. Cowboy, Clint Graves of Oxford, Kansas won the 2021 John Vance 19 and under, tie-down roper award.
Chris Neal of Chris Neal Productions said, “Clint is a talented young cowboy with all the qualities of a future World Champion in the making. His character inside the arena and most importantly outside of the arena has made him a stand-out among other young athletes.”
According to the Trevor Brazile – The Official Fan Page, “Clint Graves might be the next Trevor Brazile.” “Clint Graves is a cowboy with big dreams as a calf roper and is working hard to make them come true.”
So, who is Trevor Brazile? Trevor Brazile was born November 16, 1976. He is an American rodeo champion who competes in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA). He holds the record for the most PRCA world champion titles with 25. Brazile won his 25th title in 2019. Brazile also holds the record for the most World All-Around Cowboy Champion titles at 14, breaking the record of 7 titles held by Ty Murray, Murray’s last earned was in 1998.
