Fun Facts about Bridger: While this is his second Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualification, it will be his first time nodding his head in the Thomas and Mack Arena. His other qualification saw him competing at Globe Life Field in Texas in 2020. He finished 32nd in the standings in 2021 and then was 21st last year. Bridger is a product of Northwestern Oklahoma State Universities rodeo program. At his first NFR, his coach, Stockton Graves, was across the box doing the hazing. He won the 2019 college championship for the Alva, Oklahoma, institution. When he was three years old, he watched the NFR on television and told his family he wanted to be a steer wrestler. That has all come to fruition.
