Daniel Green, Oakdale, Calif.
Daniel Green has won the average championship and the top prize at the Timed Event Championship twice.
Last year, though, he settled for a $4,000 check for having the fourth fastest go-round of the competition. That’ll have to do, but look for that finish to be a motivating factor for Green, a 10-time qualifier to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.
You see, Green has proven quite well over his career that he’s one of the best all-around hands in the business. He’s won the all-around crown in the California Circuit multiple times and has qualified for the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo 12 times.
Oh, and he’s a two-time winner of the World’s Greatest Roper.
It’s been nine years since Green qualified for the NFR, but he’s remained one of the best all-around hands in the game. The proof is in his Timed Event and World’s Greatest Roper titles, if nothing else. Also consider that of his RNCFR qualifications, six have come since he quit rodeoing full time in 2004.
Green will turn 40 this summer, and he’s still one of the greatest cowboys in the game.
