- Team Roper - Heeler
Travis Graves is a dedicated roper and is no stranger to success. After winning the International Finals Youth Rodeo heeling title in 2001, Travis got his PRCA card in 2002, and he has been blazing an impressive trail ever since. Travis's ultimate goal, like many cowboys, is to win a world title. He is well on his way to making that dream a reality.
Travis's career includes wins at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo, the Red Bluff Round Up, the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo, and multiple wins at the Wildfire Open Roping. Other highlights include multiple trips to the Wrangler NFR in Vegas and a win at the 2012 Bob Feist Invitational in Reno - the richest single day roping in the world. Another achievement to note occurred in 2010, when Travis broke the PRCA's regular-season earnings record for team roping healers.
Travis credits his success to his family, Walt Woodard, and his wife, Tamika. He is thankful for his family's support of what he wanted to do. When Travis was young, Walt Woodard would put on schools at the Graves' home, and Travis is grateful to Walt for teaching him the basics of roping and how to win. Last, but certainly not least, Travis says he couldn't do what he does without the love and support of his wife, who travels with him and supports his goals.
Priefert is proud to count Travis as one of our outstanding endorsees.
