Tie Down Roping
HALL OF FAME: A RECORD OF NSPRA HISTORY AND ACHIEVEMENTS
NSPRA CARD # 6787
Doug earned his reputation as an outstanding roper back in the 60ís, winning the 1996 Reserve College Tie down Roper title and helping the Casper College Menís Rodeo Team earn the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association Championship that same year. He continued his winning ways in the amateur ranks, the PRCA, and finally the NSPRA. Doug joined the NSPRA 15 years ago at the urging of good friend, Dale Motley. His roping ability earned him the 1999 and 2001 NSPRA Reserve World Champion 50+ Tie Down Roper titles, and the 2000 and 2002 NSPRA World Champion 50+ Tie Down Roper titles.
Although he now hails from Giddings, TX, Doug farmed and ranched in Fort Morgan and Cope, CO, for many years, moving to Giddings after selling the farms and ranches in 2004. His daughter Paige is married to Justin Maass, a top PRCA calf roper and NFR qualifier. Paige and Justin have a three year old daughter, Addy.
Doug is deservedly proud of his calf horse, Jesse, which carried him to his NSPRA titles. Several years later Jesse went to the NFR with Dougís son-in-law, Justin, and on to Calgary where he carried both Justin and Scott Kormos to the pay window for approximately $50,000.
An active supporter of the NSPRA during the years Doug competed regularly; he served on the NSPRA Board of Directors several times and was always willing to do whatever needed doing at the rodeos. He supported the benefit auctions and donated a number of year end awards to the Association. Doug was an outstanding NSPRA member as well as an outstanding roper.
Today, he hangs out close to home and ropes with the USCRA, winning a 2008 Championship. Doug says he will see everyone at the Texas NSPRA rodeos!
