National Finals Rodeo
Round 10 Bareback Riding Results:

1 Tilden Hooper - 90.0 points on Scarlet's Web
2 Ryan Gray - 89.5 on Knight Rocket
3 Royce Ford - 87.0 on Cajun Queen

World Champion: Justin McDaniel

"It's indescribable," McDaniel said. "I've been waiting for this my whole life. Today is the best day of my life. This week I came in here in 10th place, and I knew I had to dang sure jump out there in the first round and place high and be consistent in every round to catch those guys. The Lord blessed me with the right horses all week, and I felt like I rode pretty well, so I'm just tickled to death."

Round 10 Steer Wrestling Results:

1 Trevor Knowles - 3.4 seconds
2 Luke Branquinho - 3.7
3 Todd Suhn - 4.0

World Champion: Luke Branquinho

"I couldn't even tell you," Branquinho said of how he felt. "It's kind of a relief, actually. I didn't sleep very well last night, wondering what could happen. I had a good steer, and I knew I had a chance to win good money on him in the go-round, which would have taken care of the average. It's a great honor. Watching this event growing up, it's special to be able to have two championships, just like John W. Jones Jr. I looked up to him, just to be able to be in a category like that is amazing."

Round 10 Team Roping Results:

1 Colter Todd / Cesar de la Cruz - 4.0 seconds
2 Luke Brown / Jade Corkill - 4.1
3 Jake Barnes / Clay O'Brien Cooper - 4.5

World Champion: Matt Sherwood / Randon Adams

"It's unbelievable," said Sherwood, who broke the earnings record set by Chad Masters a year ago. "To be here among the greatest ropers in the world and be crowned the world champion is truly unbelievable. There were several different scenarios that could have played out. We knew that if we just made a smooth run on the last steer, we would win the championship."

"It's something I've dreamed of my whole life," Adams said. "I've run that last steer a million times in my mind and in the practice pen. It was great to finally do it for real. I don't know if it's really hit me yet. I think it will once I get my buckle. It's the greatest feeling ever."

1 Rod Hay - 89.0 points on Wyoming's Miss Congeniality
2 Bradley Harter - 86.5 on Cat Powder
3 Bryce Miller - 85.5 on Lynx Mountain
3 Dusty Hausauer - 85.5 on Painted Valley

World Champion: Cody Wright

"I don't know if it has totally sunk in," said Wright, of Milford, Utah. "Last night, they were saying it (World Champion Cody Wright). Maybe tonight, it will sink in since it's all over. My voicemail filled up right away. Everybody was really excited."

Round 10 Tie-Down Roping Results:

1 Jeff Chapman - 7.1 seconds
2 Stran Smith - 7.2
3 Hunter Herrin - 7.4

"Words can't even describe it," Smith said of his first world title. "To win the average and win the world, and having it come down to the 10th calf is just one of those things. I had this exact same thing happen in 2004. It came down to the 10th round. I won the round and ended up losing the championship by less than $2,000. What I want to say to people is, 'Never give up.' I'm excited for my family, my wife and everybody who has been supporting me, backing me and praying for me. It's an amazing thing."

World Champion: Stran Smith

"It's been such a surreal year this year. It's unbelievable. I'm so thankful that I have such an awesome horse. Martha's really the world champion. She deserves it, and I'm so proud of her."

National Finals Rodeo
