The 1st time NFR qualifier and Waverly, Kansas cowboy, Jess Pope, is making a name for himself at the 2020 NFR!

Pope made a profound statement last night when he won the 8th round riding Xplosive Skies of Calgary Stampede with an 89 point ride. At his first NFR he claims his first-round win and is a major factor in the average.

Pope has placed in round 1, round 3, round 4, and round 7 of the Bareback riding. He collected $46,186 just from the round placings.

Since the first round, Pope has collected $72,417. He is currently sitting 5th in the world $80,155.12 behind the man in first.

A pretty impressive performance for a small-town Kansas kid with an entire state of rodeo fans behind him.
