Fun Facts about Hali: Her dad is eight-time world champion heeler Speed Williams. Hali was born on the day that he earned his seventh title in Las Vegas in 2003. She started out roping with her dad, who she says she wanted to be just like. She learned heading and heeling. Speed encouraged her to start breakaway roping so she could win the all-around. That was when she was in junior high and soon after, she was hooked. She bought her WPRA card when she turned 18. A year later she is headed to her first Wrangler National Finals Breakaway Roping. Speed and his wife Jennifer met at a roping. She has watched him turn many steers at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Now they will be watching their oldest child compete for a gold buckle at the South Point Arena. They also have a son, Gabe, who Speed has been roping with. But, for two days in December it will be all about Hali. Her biggest accomplishment this year was winning Rodeo Houston.
