World champion

Local steer wrestler Luke Branquinho took his fourth world title at the end of 2012 at the Wrangler’s Nationals Final Rodeo (WNFR) in Las Vegas. Despite steer wrestling horse (Gunner) tearing an abdomen muscle in the eighth go round at the finals and a rough start, 32-year-old Branquinho, from Los Alamos, edged out the competition. He’s also won titles at the 2004, 2008, and 2011 WNFR.
