Luke Brown and Hunter Koch have been on an upward climb from Round 1 of the 2023 NFR, battling their way out of three tough rounds. After roping a leg in the first two rounds and having a miss on the head side in Round 3, they took home a nice check in Round 4 and won Round 5 with a 3.8.

The win in Round 5 actually marks Koch’s first-ever NFR go-round win. On this episode of The Score, Brown and Koch talk about Koch’s first round win and how they’ve bounced back.
