When Luke Branquinho first qualified for the Wrangler NFR in 2001, fans had no idea the 2000 Steer Wrestling Rookie of the Year would booty shake his way into the record books. 

Branquinho won his first World Championship in 2004, he won another in 2008 and then won three in a four year stretch from 2011-2014. 

Branquinho has won a record 25 rounds in Steer Wrestling and has won three NFR average titles. He qualified for the Wrangler NFR 14 times in his career.
