FORT WORTH, TX — The Texas Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame has announced its 2020 class of Inductees into the
Texas Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame on April 4, 2020.
Among them is the legendary PRCA bucking bull Bodacious. J31 BODACIOUS (owned by Andrews Rodeo Company)
was a powerful 1,900-pound yellow bovine, considered by some to be the greatest ever to buck. As a two-time PRCA
champion bull (1994, 1995), he is one of only two bulls to have won both PBR and PRCA titles. He was also
considered the world’s most dangerous bull. After Bodacious seriously injured several bull riders, his owner Sammy
Andrews retired the notorious bovine in 1995, after 135 outs and only 8 qualified.
Bodacious also held honors such as the 1994 and 1995 PRCA Bull of the Year, 1992, 1994 and 1995 PRCA Bull of
the Wrangler National Finals, 1993 and 1994 PRCA Texas Circuit Bull of the Year, 1999 PRCA Hall of Fame and
2017 Professional Bull Riders Hall of Fame Inductee and 2019 PBR Brand of Honor Bucking Bull Inductee. In 2004,
Outdoor Life visited the Andrews ranch and filmed a documentary titled “Fearless Bodacious.”
The Texas Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame has worked for more than 45 years to preserve the history of Texas rodeo.
The Hall of Fame is location in Fort Worth’s Historic Cowtown Coliseum, where more than 500,000 people a year visit
the Hall. Currently there are over 300 photos and biographies on display of the many World Champions from Texas.
In recent years, TRCHF has expanded its mission to include Promoting the Future with a scholarship program to help
high school cowboys and cowgirls attend college. Last year the Horizon Honoree program was introduced to
recognize outstanding high school and college rodeo athletes who are the future of rodeo. We invite you to support
the Hall of Fame by becoming a member and celebrating our upcoming event.
