4 Things You Didn’t Know About Brenten Hall
Here are four things you may or may not know about this week's guest of The Score, first-time NFR qualifier Brenten Hall.

This December will mark Brenten Hall‘s first trip to the Wrangler NFR. The header from Jay, Oklahoma, sits down with The Score host Chelsea Shaffer during one of his many NFR practice sessions where they cover growing up, how his roping career got started, his partnership with Chase Tryan and more. 

On Thursday, October 31, 2019 you can listen to the full interview wherever you listen to podcasts, but for now, enjoy some takeaways from the episode. 

1. Brenten’s parents roped with Travis Graves. 

Brenten’s parents roped with Graves when Graves was a kid. Brenten’s mom roped with Graves when he was starting out and his dad roped with him in some Open ropings. 

2. Hall quit roping and riding for three years.   

Hall was 5 years old when he got bucked off and quit for three years.

3.  Hall’s dream of making the NFR wasn’t just his own. 

“My dad always had God-given talent but he always said that he didn’t set his goals high enough. He always told me, ‘Never set your dreams low. Always set them high because he didn’t set his high enough. So I would say it was a huge goal of both of ours to do it. He told my mom as he was getting sick, that if I would keep my nose clean and keep down on the grind stone, I could do it. I guess he was right.”

4. Everyone has set goals, right? Not Brenten. 

“I swear I don’t have any. I know that’s wrong. I just want to do good and have fun. If I’m winning then I’m having fun. I have fun when I’m not winning, too because I’m a big life person. If you don’t have fun in life then life’s not worth living.”
