Meet Our Resistol Rookies!
In December during the 2020 National Finals Rodeo (NFR), five determined individuals were recognized for their hard work all year long. These individuals were the 2020 Resistol Rookies of the Year for the National Little Britches Rodeo Association (NLBRA). The Resistol Rookie is the competitor in each age group that has the most points at the end of the year and has never competed in the NLBRA before. Thanks to Resistol, Lane Howard, Brylee Hemphill, Kham Patterson, Rhea Fenner and Kash Woods had the opportunity to walk across the Rookie stage at Billy Bob’s Texas alongside the other distinguished cowboys and cowgirls that claimed the Resistol Rookie titles for the Pro Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) and the Womens Professions Rodeo Association (WPRA), as well as numerous rodeo legends like, Tuff Hedeman, Trevor Brazile, Joe Beaver and Sherry Cervi.
