While many of the top PRCA com­peti­tors have mul­ti­ple chances through­out their ca­reers to win gold buck­les and ti­tles in the events they com­pete in, there is one award that a com­peti­tor has only one shot at, the cov­eted Re­sis­tol Rookie of the Year. This award is given out to first-year card mem­bers who are the high money winner of their event at the end of the sea­son, in­clud­ing the WNFR. Re­sis­tol, one of the orig­i­nal spon­sors of the PRCA and of­fi­cial hat of the PRCA, cel­e­brated the 2017 Re­sis­tol Rook­ies with its third an­nual lun­cheon to honor each of the re­cip­i­ents. The rook­ies re­ceived airfare, tick­ets to the rodeo and ho­tel rooms to at­tend the spe­cial oc­ca­sion.

Two Re­sis­tol Rook­ies qual­i­fied for the 2017 WNFR: Boudreaux Camp­bell in the bull rid­ing and WPRA bar­rel racer Taci Bet­tis.

The PRCA Re­sis­tol Rook­ies were pre­sented with a cus­tom, per­son­al­ized 20X Re­sis­tol Black Gold hat and tro­phy car­ry­ing case, a beau­ti­ful fully tooled Cac­tus tro­phy sad­dle, a Re­sis­tol logo Yeti Cooler, a Re­sis­tol PRCA Rookie leather tro­phy jacket, Wran­gler jeans, and a gift from Fast Back Ropes. The PRCA Re­sis­tol Rook­ies of the Year were again rec­og­nized in the arena dur­ing Round 8 of the WNFR and pre­sented their Mon­tana Sil­ver­smiths cham­pion buck­les.

Re­sis­tol also in­vited and in­tro­duced the 2017 Na­tional Lit­tle Britches As­so­ci­a­tion Re­sis­tol Rook­ies of the Year and their fam­i­lies. Con­grat­u­la­tions to these amaz­ing youth rodeo ath­letes: Bai­ley Fullmer, Se­nior Girl, Ne­vada; Cul­ley Mor­gan, Se­nior Boy, Ok­la­homa; Chloe Northrup, Ju­nior Girl, Texas; Coy He­bert, Ju­nior Boy, Louisiana; Addi Jones, Lit­tle Wran­gler, Ok­la­homa.

The Re­sis­tol “Ride for the Brand” Award is a newly created award for an in­dus­try per­son or per­sons who pro­mote the brand ex­ten­sively through­out the year in an au­then­tic and pos­i­tive way. The “Ride for the Brand” award was pre­sented to this group of an­nounc­ers: Bob Tall­man, Boyd Pol­hamus, Randy Cor­ley, Wayne Brooks and Roger Mooney. Each time a PRCA Re­sis­tol Rookie rides in any per­for­mance at a PRCA rodeo, these guys al­ways an­nounce this ac­com­plish­ment. This ti­tle fol­lows PRCA rook­ies through­out their ca­reers.

Also pre­sented at the lun­cheon was the Re­sis­tol “Man of the Year” award. This award goes to some­one in the in­dus­try who goes above and be­yond to fur­ther the Western in­dus­try, sport, and lifestyle. The 2017 re­cip­i­ent is Karl Stress­man.

RE­SIS­TOL ROOK­IES OF THE YEAR RE­CEIVED FULLY TOOLED CAC­TUS SAD­DLES, YETI COOL­ERS, LEATHER TRO­PHY JACK­ETS, A GIFT FROM FAST BACK ROPES, WRAN­GLER JEANS, AND A 20X BLACK GOLD RE­SIS­TOL HAT.
