Trey Nahrgang wins RAM Turquoise Circuit Finals Rodeo


PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. – Steer wrestler Trey Nahrgang has been a staple at the RAM Turquoise Circuit Finals Rodeo for more than a decade.

Nahrgang had qualified for the RAM Turquoise Circuit Finals Rodeo 12 times – without much success.

This year, Nahrgang changed his game plan and changed his luck.

Nahrgang won the average in 14.5 seconds on three head Oct. 5.

The Buckeye, Ariz., cowboy set the tone by winning the first round in 4.6 seconds.

“I just went at it like it was any other rodeo because I haven’t had much luck in the past trying to safety up for the average,” Nahrgang said. “The second and third rounds I just went and made good practice runs and placed third in both.”

Nahrgang had times of 4.9 seconds in the second round and 5.0 seconds in the third round, and that consistency won him the average title.

Nahrgang’s win came aboard his horse, Spartacus, who had been laid up for three months.

“I brought him back a few weeks ago, and he feels better than ever,” Nahrgang said.

An important component in steer wrestling is the hazer, and Nahrgang was fortunate to have one of the best. 

“My hazer, Trevor Duhon, makes it easy,” Nahrgang said. “I don’t ever have to worry if he’s going to be there – he is always there.  He makes it to where I only have to worry about bulldogging.”

Duhon not only had a memorable weekend hazing for Nahrgang, but he also walked away with the Turquoise Circuit year-end steer wrestling title.

Nahrgang, meanwhile, earned $6,546 at the RAM TCFR.

“I really wasn’t planning on rodeoing this year,” Nahrgang said. "I have three little kids and a beautiful wife at home. I just went to the rodeos that worked in our schedule and made the best of them.”

Nahrgang earned his first qualification to the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo, scheduled for April 2-5 in Kissimmee, Fla. He's planning on taking the whole “gang” with him.

“My family will be joining me,” Nahrgang said. “My kids call it the alligator rodeo – they are excited.”

Other winners at the $181,895 rodeo were bareback rider Evan Betony (221.5 points on three head); team ropers Trey Blackmore/Seth Hall (23.0 seconds on three head); saddle bronc rider Leon Fountain (232 points on three head); tie-down roper Shad Mayfield (24.4 seconds on three head); barrel racer Tarryn Lee (43.81 seconds on three runs); steer roper Corey Ross (44.4 seconds on three head); and bull rider Joseph McConnel (246 points on three head). The all-around cowboy was Seth Hall ($5,637, tie-down roping and team roping).
