Campbell claims Buckout title again time

Summerville’s Cody Campbell added a win at the Legacy Ford Buckout Friday to what has already been a stellar season.

Campbell, ranked No. 7 in the Professional Cowboys Rodeo Association’s world bull riding standings, posted a score of 86 points in the long round before going for 87 points in the short-go to win the event for the second time in the last three years.

“It feels great,” Campbell said. “I won this the first year they had it. This is an awesome bull riding to have here. I love coming here and riding in front of everybody. It’s a great feeling.”

Campbell was the only rider to post scores in both the long round and short round. 

Both scores were the best of the night and earned him $3,092.90.

“That was a great bull,” Campbell said of his ride in the championship round. 

“He turned back into my hand. He just felt great. He was up and down. Had a lot of timing. He was moving the whole time, which made him a little tough. But it was a great bull and it turned out great.”

Cain Smith was the only other rider to post a score in the short round. 

Smith rode for 80 points after getting bucked off in the long round. 

But because 10 riders didn’t qualify for the short round, Smith was brought back for another shot.

Roscoe Jarbo, who won the Mark Nichols Memorial bull riding in Elgin last month, rode for 85 points in the long round. 

Charlie Scolari and Derek Kolbaba both rode for 84 points, while Brian Sanders had a score of 83 points. Jaylee Britt posted a score of 80 points.

The bulls, brought to town by 2 Bucks Rodeo Co., Gold Buckle Rodeo Co. and Keith Garber, came out on the winning side of things for the majority of the night.

“It’s a spectacular pen of bulls,” Campbell said.

Campbell has qualified for the Professional Bull Riders world finals three times in his career, but this year he is making a run to qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo held in Las Vegas in December.

The top 15 riders qualify.

“I’ve stayed healthy,” Campbell said. “That’s a big deal in bull riding — to stay healthy all year. Fortunately, I’ve stayed healthy enough to ride all year and things have been going great.”

He said a trip to the NFR would be a dream come true.

“That’s why I’m rodeoing. Is to go the NFR,” Campbell said.
