Trevor Brazile made history in 2020 and has career earnings of well over $7 million. The rodeo champion reportedly has a net worth of $2.5 million.
The Texas native Trevor Brazile was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame last year. He is known as the King of PRCA Cowboys, having won 26 world championships.
Brazile comes from a rodeo family and was also married into one. His wife, Shada Brazile’s family, has a long history in sports and was surrounded by rodeo champions growing up.
Shada and Trevor’s son, Treston, has also already shown early signs of wanting to make a career in the same sport as his dad.
Trevor Brazile Career Earnings & Net Worth
Trevor Brazile’s career earnings have made noise in the rodeo community. Why wouldn’t it? In 2020, he became the first cowboy to surpass $7 million in career earnings.
The Texas native Brazile briefly talked about hitting the milestone in an interview with RFD TV after competing in the National Finals Steer Roping gold buckle.
As Trevor crossed the $7 million mark, he said, “I started here in 1997 at the steer roping finals, and I passed the $7 million mark here, which is cool.”
At the time, the second closest to his mark was fellow Texas native Cody Ohl. He had made about $3.5 million in his career earnings. Brazile began his rodeo career in 1996 and won his first competition two years later.
In 2002, Brazile won his first world all-around title, and by the time 2004 rolled around, he had won his third consecutive all-around title along with $251,170 in career earnings.
In 2006, Trevor became the youngest PRCA cowboy and the seventh overall to cross the $2 million mark in career earnings. A year later, he broke his own single-season record with earnings of $425,115.
Brazile is said to have a net worth of $2.5 million. Earlier this year, the rodeo superstar announced his partnership with Equinety, the industry-leading amino acid supplement distributor.
The partnership meant the horses in the Relentless Remuda program (started by Brazile and his business partner Miles Baker) would benefit from an Equinety XL and Equinety Ultimate OEC regimen.
Trevor Brazile Family
Trevor Brazile comes from a family of cowboys. His father, Jimmy Brazile, was a part-time competitor, and his mother, Glenda, competed in rodeos as a kid.
Later in her life, Glenda became a schoolteacher and was a coach. In an interview, Glenda said Trevor didn’t want to do anything but rope and ride.
By age 11, he was already competing in local and regional rodeos. In 2001, Trevor tied the knot with Shada Brazile, who herself comes from a rodeo family.
Trevor’s father, Jimmy, and Shada’s stepfather, Roy Copper, rodeoed together in Texas. Shada’s maternal grandfather, Clifton Smith, was also a two-time NFR qualifier, and her uncle, Stran Smith, won the tie-down world title in 2008.
Shada’s brothers, Clif Cooper and Tuf Cooper, are also cowboys. Clif is a four-time NFL qualifier, and Tuf is a two-time world tied-down champion and six-time NFR qualifier.
In 2013, Shada competed in barrel racing, finishing 13th in the season money winnings and qualified for the NFR. The couple share a son named Treston Brazile, born in 2008. Trevor and Shada also have two daughters.
Like his father, Treston also dreams of becoming a rodeo star. Previously, a video of him practicing in the pen alongside his dad and Miles Baker was shared by a Facebook page named Western Horseman.
