Meet the NFR Athletes is Presented by Montana Silversmiths
After winning Resistol Rookie of the Year in 2021 and finishing No. 5 in the PRCA Bull Riding World Standings, Young has now cashed in a trip to the NFR in 2022 and 2023 as well.
This year, he enters No. 6 in the PRCA World Standings with $156,286 and has a chance for his best career finish.
After riding over 50 percent of his bulls for an Average Score of nearly 84 points, Young has the profile of someone who could snag his first NFR Average crown.
The biggest payday of the year for Creek Young came at RodeoHouston where he earned nearly $20,000 over the course of the rodeo. Young was 2-for-3 in his Super Series to advance before winning his Semifinal as the only cowboy to make the whistle.
Ellensburg Xtreme Bulls (Washington), $11,841
Young tied for the win in the First Round of the rodeo with an 88.5-point ride on Corey & Lange Rodeo’s Pretty Boy to win over $9,000 and ultimately finished sixth in the Average for his score on one head as five cowboys in front of him rode both.
