BY BRETT NIERENGARTEN @PRORODEOBRETT
Fourteen-time NFR saddle bronc rider Cody DeMoss took his final ride over the weekend at the Deep South PRCA Rodeo in Winnsboro, Louisiana.
DeMoss, who had only competed at five rodeos in 2023, made his highest marked ride of the season with 83.5 points on his final horse to take second.
In his career, the 42-year-old made more than $2.5 million and made the NFR in three different decades by first qualifying in 2003 and last qualifying in 2021. DeMoss won the NFR Average in 2012 and also finished as the Reserve World Champion that year, something he did four times in his career.
Among the Louisiana native’s notable wins are three Cheyenne Frontier Days titles, three Reno Rodeo titles, three Rodeo Austin titles and three National Western titles.
