Two seasons ago, Davis proved to be quite an impressive first-timer in the field of the Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping.
The third-generation roper won the 10-round average in the championship’s return to this grand arena after an eight-year hiatus. It was quite a celebration for Davis, whose father, Jim Davis, won two Steer Roping World Titles, and whose grandfather, Merle Davis, was part of the inaugural NFSR field in 1959.
That pedigree is one thing, but Bryce Davis is making quite a name for himself. This is his third straight trip to the finals, a strong indication of his talent and his fortitude.
You want more? Last November when he found himself on without a chance to repeat as average champion, Davis went on a tear. He placed in five go-rounds, including wins in the sixth, seventh and ninth go-rounds. He finished with $21,154 … a pretty strong showing in just his second trip to the finals.
He’s ready to compete in this arena for the third straight years. He won the steer roping title in Deadwood, S.D., and set an arena record with a 9.1-second run at the National Finals Steer Roping this past spring.
