Trevor Brazile Slowing Down In 2019 To Focus On Four Things

Twenty-three world titles, 22 years in the professional rodeo game, but the number Trevor Brazile is focusing on now is four. The King of the Cowboys announced that he will be slowing down in 2019 to spend more time with the four members of his family: his wife Shada and kids Treston (11), Style (8) and Swayzi (3).

While Brazile is not retiring, he told Kendra Santos in a prorodeo.com article that his “all-in” focus will shift.

“Though we rodeo’d together as a family, rodeo was taking a lot of my time and attention,” Brazile said in the article. “Home-schooling our kids is the only thing that made it work as long as it did. Now that they’re in public school, the days of being gone on the first day of school and missing ball games are over.

“I’ve always been an all-in kind of guy, and if there’s one thing I cannot live with doing halfway, it’s being a husband and dad.”

The man that has won more world titles than anyone in the history of the sport is truly going out on top – the article stated that he is happy it is his choice and not injury or age that is forcing him to semi-retire. Rodeo fans will still get to see the legend compete next year in his three events – now team roping with roping legend Clay O’Brien Cooper – just with a much smaller schedule of events.

“I never want to count myself out, but with such a drastic change in the way I conduct my rodeo business, if I do ever make the Finals again it’ll be a bigger story than my retirement, because I’ll have gotten it done at just a handful of rodeos,” Brazile said. 

With the way the rodeo industry seems to be shifting with new large-payout rodeos sanctioned under the PRCA like RFD-TV’s The American, we won’t be counting Brazile out either.
