Fun Facts about John: Last year, he started his first WNFR in 15th place with about 53 percent of his regular season earnings this year. The former Permit Challenge winner got a taste of competing in Las Vegas at the South Point in 2016. He also qualified for the College National Finals Rodeo three times in the steer wrestling and tie-down roping. Competing in the Thomas and Mack Arena last year was an accomplishment from years of hard work and support from his two families. John grew up in a family that loves rodeo and is very competitive. Then he met Joe Beaver and added a second family. They were all on hand to watch him compete this year at Rodeo Houston. It made his win there even more special and put him in first place in the world standings. He kept grinding and is just $40,000 behind his friend Shad Mayfield.
