Fun Facts about Shad: He hopes he can start rodeo’s championships the way he ended the regular season – with a major win. Shad has won consistently all season and qualified for the Playoffs at the Washington State Fair. A fourth-place finish gave him the opportunity to rope at the Governor’s Cup in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He won throughout the rounds at that event and on the final day of the season had the fastest time to earn $25,000. His total from the rodeo was nearly $40,000 and moved him from third place to second in the world standings. He also crossed the $1 million in career earnings. He won the high school title one year before Riley Webb. Clovis, New Mexico, is just a few miles west of the Texas border. In high school he and his family decided it would be more convenient to travel to Texas rodeos. Shad thought it would improve his roping as the competition would be tougher. He won the high school title representing the Lone Star State in 2019, the same year that he qualified for his first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. He’s been spending time at the gym, eating healthy and is getting ready to go against the best ropers in the PRCA and win his second world championship.
