Cody Custer - Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame

Cody Custer
Cody Custer Bull Rider • Inducted 2017 Cody Custer started riding bulls at 13 years old and won Arizona high school championships in 1983 and 1984 before joining the PRCA in 1985. He qualified for the National Finals Rodeo every year from 1987 through 1992, when he won the world championship. One of his most-memorable rides was in Round 10 of the 1991 NFR, when he scored 94 points on Growney Brothers' Wolfman. His previous high score had been 90 points on Skoal Pacific Bell at the 1988 Grand National Rodeo in San Francisco. Custer was the Turquoise Circuit Bull Riding Champion from 1989-92, the Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo Bull Riding Champion from 1990-92, and the Original Coors Rodeo Showdown Bull Riding Champion in 1992. Custer bounced back from a series of injuries following his 1992 gold buckle season to qualify for the NFR in 1998-99. He also won the Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days bull riding in 1999 and remained an active bull rider through 2002. In addition to his success in the arena, Custer rode for Hollywood - as a stand-in for Lane Frost's character in the movie 8 Seconds.

Corley, along with gold buckle winners including the late Buck Rutherford (all-around, 1954), Enoch Walker (saddle bronc riding, 1960), Tommy Puryear (steer wrestling, 1974), Mike Beers (team roping, 1984) and Cody Custer (bull riding, 1992), will be enshrined with rodeo notable Bob Ragsdale, a 22-time National Finals Rodeo qualifier in three events. Custer's eight trips to the NFR and 1992 bull riding world championship win landed him in the ProRodeo Hall of Fame. "It wasn't a call I wasn't waiting on or expecting - it's one of those deals I thought about it, but you don't sit on your hands and wait," Custer said. "I was overwhelmed and a bit emotional, and didn't have much to say." Custer first joined the PRCA in 1985 and went on to qualify for the NFR from 1987-92, and again in 1998-99. He remained an active competitor through 2002. "I was just a kid from Arizona who had big dreams to do something in rodeo," Custer said.
