Tie-down roping rookie Bryce Derrer is making sure to capitalize on every Go-Round and it has landed him at the pay window before and is getting ready to do it again. He is your Resistol Rookie Athlete of the Week.

The last leg of the Texas Swing, the San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo, is underway. Derrer hustled to stop the clock at 7.8 seconds in Round 1 and with only two performances left, 7.8 is sitting third. Although he will not make it back to the Finals, this Go-Round check will help him further his lead in the Resistol Rookie Race.

Derrer was able to sneak into the Top 8 and hit a payday at the Clark County Fair and Rodeo after his trip to Texas. The New Mexico tie-down roper put together a 9.0-second run in Round 1 at Logandale that was worth $271 and although that might not seem like much, the rookies already know that every penny counts.

With over $22,000 in career earnings so far, Derrer leads the Resistol Rookie Race by about $3,000 over Garrett Elmore and Cole Walker. To make Derrer’s rookie year ever better, he is eyeing the Top 15 in the World as he the No. 17 ranked tie-down roper in the PRCA. As he closes out the Texas Swing with a Go-Round check and cashes in out west, Derrer is your Resistol Rookie Athlete of the Week.
