This set will be pretty comparable to Round 2, if not just a touch softer. Look for a lot of 4-second runs. Every team has a chance, and there shouldn’t be one team with the advantage, according to Billy Bob Brown, who’s managing the steers this week for the team roping contestants.
Erich Rogers and Paden Bray: 846
Great chance. Right down the middle, good speed. Erich will set him up for Paden to heel fast on the end of it.
Chad Masters and Wesley Thorp: 851
They ran this steer in the practice. He was sharp and right down the middle, and he handled great.
Charly Crawford and Logan Medlin: 842
This is a great steer with big horns. He looks like a Watusi.
Levi Simpson and Shay Carroll: 845
He was fighting it leaving the chute when they called for him in the run-through, but he should be a good steer. He handles good and Shay will get him fast tonight.
Clay Tryan and Jake Long: 766
He stepped right but was a good steer.
Andrew Ward and Buddy Hawkins II: 843
He stepped right but had great speed. That should fit their run.
Dustin Egusquiza and Travis Graves: 741
They ran that steer in practice. He’s hard to count against. He might fade right a little, but with the lights on, he won’t.
Colby Lovell and Paul Eaves: 857
He’s similar to their Round 2 steer. Right down the middle with big horns and good speed.
Cody Snow and Junior Noguiera: 537
Good steer, right down the middle.
Clay Smith and Jade Corkill: 850
He faded a little right, but had good speed. He’s a great chance for them.
Luke Brown and Joseph Harrison: 798
This is a good steer. He stepped right after the rope hit his horns, but Joseph probably won’t let him go right.
Brenten Hall and Chase Tryan: 787
This is another great steer, right down the middle.
Kolton Schmidt and Hunter Koch: 847
This is a good steer and right down the middle. Kolton should rebound tonight.
Jeff Flenniken and Tyler Worley: 849
Great, straight steer.
Nelson Wyatt and Levi Lord: 852
This is another good one. This is just like their steer in Round 2, and might step left with great speed.
