Timed Event Athlete of the Week: Jesse Brown Racks Up Big Checks in Texas and Nevada
Steer wrestler Jesse Brown put on an outstanding performance in both San Angelo, Texas and Longdale, Nevada over the weekend to add a total of about $17,000 to his season earnings.
Brown is currently the No.2 ranked steer wrestler in the PRCA World Standings.
In San Angelo, Brown stayed almost as consistent as it can get. A 4.1-second run in Round 1, a 4.2 in Round 2 and 4.0 to tie for second in the Finals landed him at No. 2 in the average. He rounded out his Texas Swing with almost $10,000 from the San Angelo Rodeo.
The Clark County Fair and Rodeo in Logandale was the first rodeo of the run out west. There, Brown dominated the First Round with a 3.7 to win it by four tenths. Things slowed down in the Second Round to a 4.4-second run, but he was still in the money. By the time the last steer was run, Brown topped the Average with 8.1 on two.
The three-time National Finals Rodeo bulldogger has had a successful winter run and he is already off to a quick start out west earning him the title of Timed Event Athlete of the Week.
