Scott Snedecor, Uvalde, Texas
The last time Scott Snedecor left the Lazy E Arena, he did so as the event champion, winning the average title at the 2011 Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping last November.
He’d like to repeat the feat this weekend. Of course, so would the other 19 competitors in this incredible field. Snedecor’s advantage comes in the two gold buckles he’s earned by winning the 2005 and 2008 PRCA Steer Roping World Championships.
At last year’s Timed Event Championship, Snedecor finished the weekend in 403.7 seconds, good enough for ninth place. While his score was better than half the field, he finished just out of the money. That doesn’t happen very often. Snedecor earned the Texas High School Rodeo Association’s team roping title in 1992, then earned the team roping championship at the 1995 College National Finals Rodeo.
It’s proof of his winning nature, something that can come in quite handy this in this unique event.
