Cowley's JR Vezain pocketed more than $10,000 Saturday when he won the bareback bronc riding title at the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo in Fort Worth, Texas.

Vezain, who won the first round earlier in the week to qualify for the finals, won the final round with a score of 87.5 points on Pickett Pro Rodeo's Top Notch. That gave Vezain a four-head total of 338.5 points. Mason Clements of Springville, Utah, was second with a 338.0.

Former Central Wyoming College cowboy Ty Breuer finished third in the average with a total of 333 and Ranchester's Seth Hardwick was fifth with 328.5.

Hillsdale saddle bronc rider Brody Cress, who won the average title at the National Finals Rodeo in December, finished third in the average.

Along with Vezain, also winning titles were steer wrestler Tyler Pearson, bull rider Trevor Kastner, barrel racer Amberleigh Moore, team ropers Matt Sherwood and Walt Woodard, tie-down roper Shane Hanchey and saddle bronc rider Jacobs Crawley.
