Crawford Helps Harrison Win Pioneer Days Title

Brock Kappelmann - May 8, 2017 1:27 pm

Crawford helps Harrison to title
GUYMON, Okla.
Charly Crawford is playing the role of teacher in his team roping partnership
with Joseph Harrison. That happens with someone like Crawford, an eight time Wrangler National
Finals Rodeo qualifying header, is matched with a heeler that hasn’t played on ProRodeo’s grandest stage.
“I believe it’s an awesome opportunity for me,” said Harrison of Overbrook, Okla. “He teachesme as we go
along some of the things I don’t know.” His lessons continued during the final performance of the 85th
Guymon Pioneer Days Rodeo on Sunday afternoon, where the tandem stopped the clock in 8.2 seconds; it
was just enough to secure ashare of the victory.
“I made a horse change,” said Crawford of Prineville, Ore. “I rode one of my wife’s horses in the
first two (rounds). The steers were real fresh, and he’s real broke and real easy to ride. The steers usually
get to running a little more in the third round, so I brought my good horse that can run pretty hard.
“I did an OK job of heading, and Joe did a really good job of heeling.”
Crawford and Harrison shared the victory with Brooks Dahozy and Tommy Zuniga. Both teams
earned $2,934 after downing three steers in a cumulative time of 23.6 seconds. Crawford and Harrison
each earned $3,389 in the Oklahoma Panhandle this week, adding a first round paycheck to their total.
“I was a little later than I wanted to be,” Crawford said. “The steer started trotting, then took off.
The main thing was to salvage a run and make them come beat us.” When that didn’t happen, they earned
the right to collect one of the trophy belts that are awarded to Pioneer Days Rodeo champions every year.
This will be the second for Crawford, the first for Harrison. “It’s awesome,” Harrison said. “I’ve been coming to this rodeo
for a long time, and it’s in my circuit. I have the opportunity to rope with Charly this year, and I’m super excited about it.”
He should be. Not only will the money count toward the world standings, but it will go a long way in helping Harrison in the
Prairie Circuit. He was not ranked heading into this weekend, but he leaves the Oklahoma Panhandle the No. 1 heeler
in the Oklahoma Kansas Nebraska region.  More importantly, it helps give the cowboys a lot of confidence heading into \
the summer run of rodeos. “This is a cool rodeo,” Crawford said. “We enjoy the long starts and the fresh steers. The
committee does a great job.”
That’s why they’ll continue to return.
