Tryan may have the world titles, but its Graves who’s captured two of team roping’s biggest championships this month. He won $100,000 in the RFD-TV The American at AT&T Stadium in Arlington on March 1, and picked up another $100,000 in the Strait Classic.

“It’s been one of my goals for a long time to win the George Strait Team Roping Classic,” said Graves on his Facebook page. “Glad I finally did it. What a great month. Super blessed!”

Both ropers earned $100,000, and also were awarded new pickups and trailers.
