I grew up in Caldwell, TX with my parents, Kenneth & Linda Key. I have one sister, Kris Walker. I live in Stephen, TX with my wife Josey & two boys, Kase & Kooper. I high school & college rodeoed. I was the College National Finals Rodeo Team Roping Champion in 1988 when attending Tarelton University. I also won the 1988 NIRA Southwest Region in Team Roping. I joined the PRCA in 1989 heeling. In 2000, I switched ends & started heading. I have made the National Finals Rodeo 9 times as a header. In 2008, I reached a million dollars in the PCRA earnings. I am proud to be a Christian.
Born and raised in Abilene, TX, Lari Dee has won 11-consecutive AJRA world roping titles beginning at age 9. She attended Vernon Junior College where she won a NIRA National Championship, and then moved on to Texas Tech University where she won a second NIRA National Championship.

As the son of world-champion team roper Mike Beers (1984), it’s no wonder header Brandon Beers would become a 4X State Champion Team Roper, named PRCA Rookie of the Year 2005, 2005 Resistol Rookie of the Year, and hold multiple NFR Qualifiers. Plus, Brandon and his teammate Jim Ross Cooper of Monument, New Mexico, placed third at the much-celebrated Bob Feist Invitational in Reno (June 2013).
Proud to be a Professional Rodeo Cowboy, Brandon lives in Powell Butte, Oregon with his wife Kimber and their new baby boy Baelor Leonard Beers, born April 26, 2015. He also sells roping cattle as a cattle broker for the Longview Ranch in Kimberly, Oregon, the same town where his grandparents have been cattle ranchers for years.
Team roper (header) JoJo LeMond was born September 26, 1982 in Roswell, New Mexico. JoJo joined the PRCA in 2002, but it was how he overcome such obstacles as a mild stroke and a rattlesnake bite in 2009, plus a fire at his ranch in West Texas a couple of years later, that makes JoJo the epitome of endurance.
A two-time competitor at the “Iron Man of Rodeo” Timed Event Championship in Guthrie, JoJo also holds two WNFR Qualifications, a DNCFR qualification (2009), two Tour Finale qualifications, and the 2008-2009 Championship. In 2010, for the third year in a row, he qualified for the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas; though his best finish was at the 2009 NFR, when he finished the year as the world’s fifth-ranked header in team roping.
Today, JoJo lives in Andrews, Texas, with his wife Blair and their three children. Though he’s given up his career as a full-time rodeo contestant, he still loves to rope and teaches every chance he gets.
A member of PRCA since 2003, heeler Travis Graves holds the 2013 PRCA World Title, and has qualified for WNFR five times (2008, 2010-13). Additional wins include Cody (Wyo.) Stampede, Clovis (Calif.) Rodeo, the Walker County Fair & Rodeo (Huntsville, Texas) and Butterfield Stage Days PRCA Rodeo (Bridgeport, Texas), with fellow Team Hesston teammate Kaleb Driggers, and the Tulsa (Okla.) State Fair PRCA Rodeo.
A native of Jay, Oklahoma, Travis says his dad was a team roper, so it was a sport he grew up with. In fact, he won the 2001 International Finals Youth Rodeo heeling title. Today, Travis and his wife, Tamika, (married June 11, 2005) have one son, Tee, born November 5, 2012.
