Duvall, Etbauer carry family tradition

DUNCAN — There’s something about a great family tradition that molds the next generation.

In rodeo, that sentiment is especially strong. That family legacy was quite powerful Friday night during the Chisholm Trail Ram Prairie Circuit Finals Rodeo, where Trell Etbauer and Riley Duvall stopped the clock in 4.0 seconds to win the second round of steer wrestling at the Stephens County Fair and Expo Center in Duncan.

  Etbauer and Duvall are well known names in rodeo, especially in Oklahoma. Trell’s father, Robert, is a two-time world champion saddle bronc rider, while his uncle, Billy, is a five-time titlist. Roy Duvall is Riley’s great-uncle, and he owns three gold buckles; Riley’s dad, Sam, and uncle, Spud, are qualifiers to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

  “I just feel lucky to be out of the family I’m from,” said Riley Duvall of Checotah, Okla. “I had a great opportunity with that. I love rodeo no matter what my family is like, so it’s pretty handy that they’ve all been involved in rodeo so long.”

That’s the way it was for the Etbauer clan. Robert and his brothers, Dan and Billy, transplanted to Oklahoma from South Dakota, then the excelled on the national stage.

 “Rodeo is what I grew up around, and it’s about all I know,” said Trell Etbauer, who grew up in the Oklahoma Panhandle community of Goodwell. “I enjoy it, and I’m thankful I get to do what I love to do. I’m glad I have a great family that supports me and helps me out all the time.”

  They took advantage of their opportunities Friday. With their runs, the tandem pocketed checks worth $1,031.

 “The average is all I think about,” Duvall said, noting that the average title will go to the cowboy that has the best three-run cumulative time when the circuit finals concludes Saturday night. “Stockton (Graves) has the year-end title won, so the only way I can get to Oklahoma City is to win the average.”

 Year-end and average champions in each event qualify for the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo, which takes place next spring in Oklahoma City.

 “Just getting to go Oklahoma City is good so good around here, because that’s where the big money is at,” said Duvall, who won the steer wrestling average at the 2011 circuit finals.

Etbauer is a three-time circuit all-around champion, and he’s in position to claim a third. He is second in the standings behind Graves, who qualified for the circuit finals only in steer wrestling. Etbauer, though, is competing in three events: bulldogging, tie-down roping and saddle bronc riding. He’ll have three times the opportunity on championship Saturday night.

“Stockton’s real good in the average so far, so I just need to go get the go-round money in all three events,” Etbauer said.

 It sure set up for a fun final night of the 2013 season.

  • Demon home game becomes road doubleheader

    The Duncan baseball team will head to Del City for a doubleheader Tuesday after its scheduled home Monday game was postponed.
    Demon coach Tim Hightower said Del City had some transportation issues that kept the Eagles from making it to Duncan. Snow in Del City delayed school buses and one would not have been available to bring the players to Duncan until between 4:30 and 5 p.m. That would mean delaying the start time of Monday’s game until later in the evening, when it would have been cold.
