Nebraska defenders Dicaprio Bootle and Mohamed Barry led a group of Husker defensive and special teams standout honored by the Big Ten Conference on Tuesday.

A sophomore cornerback, Bootle was a third-team all-conference selection by both the Coaches and the Big Ten Media. Bootle registered 15 pass breakups on the season, tying for the second-most PBU in Nebraska history and the most since 2004. He ranked fourth in the Big Ten and 17th nationally in passes defended per game.

Barry had a standout junior season at linebacker and earned third-team recognition by the Big Ten Media and honorable-mention accolades from the coaches. Barry led Nebraska with 112 tackles, the most by a Husker since Lavonte David had 133 tackles in 2011. Barry had seven double-figure tackles games, becoming the fifth Husker to have seven games with 10 or more tackles in a season.

Three other Husker defensive players received honorable-mention all-conference recognition. Senior linebacker Luke Gifford was honored by both the media and coaches panel. Gifford had 62 tackles and led Nebraska with 13 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks. Gifford was also recognized on Tuesday as Nebraska’s winner of the Big Ten Sportsmanship Award.

Junior defensive linemen Carlos and Khalil Davis were chosen as honorable-mention players by the coaches and media, respectively. The twins from Blue Springs, Mo., anchored the Blackshirt defensive front. Carlos Davis had 27 tackles, three TFL and a sack, while his five breakups were the most by a Nebraska defensive lineman in nine seasons. Khalil Davis finished with 41 tackles, including eight tackles for loss and three sacks.

Junior punter Isaac Armstrong was an honorable-mention choice by both the media and coaches. Armstrong took over the punting duties at mid-season and averaged 43.6 yards per punt to rank second in the Big Ten. The average ranks as the ninth-best season average in Nebraska history.

The Big Ten will announce all-conference offensive teams on Wednesday.

A man who spent nine years at McCook Community College as an assistant coach with the men’s basketball team, will take over the head coaching post for the MCC women’s basketball program.

Brandon Pritchett has been named MCC’s Women’s Basketball Coach. He had been serving the college as the interim coach since late February after the resignation of former coach Kellen Fernetti. Pritchett took over a team that topped the 20-win mark for the third time in four years.

“We are extremely excited for Coach Pritchett to take over the women’s basketball program here at McCook,” said MCC Athletic Director Jon Olsen. “Brandon has done an excellent job in his nine years at the college in every role he has had, he is a great worker and someone that I can count on to get things done and is always there to help for the betterment of the college and our student athletes.”

This season, the Lady Indians finished 21-11 and claimed a Nebraska Community College Athletic Conference championship with a perfect 6-0 mark. The team finished in third place in the South Sub-Region and hosted a first round Region tournament game for the first time since going to the current play-in game format. The season ended with a one-point loss to Eastern Wyoming in the second round of the Region IX Tournament.

Since arriving at MCC in August of 2010, Pritchett began his assistant coaching duties with the men’s program under Brandon Lenhart which has included a wide range of responsibilities including recruiting and summer camp responsibilities.

Pritchett served two years as Resident Life Assistant, Intramural Director, and basketball camp instructor. In March of 2012, he was named Area Assistant Director of Advising where his duties have included advising for MCC’s 450 on-campus, commuter and on line students as well as student recruitment for the 18 counties in the Mid-Plains Community College District.

In December of 2012 he launched the first McCook Community College Athletic website.

“Brandon has been a huge part of our athletic program during his time here, and now I am excited for him to take on his new role,” Olsen said.

Prior to coming to MCC he spent six seasons at Flagstaff High School. He graduated Cum Laude at Northern Arizona University in 2005 and received his master’s degree in Sports Science and Management at the United States Sports Academy in Daphne, Ala., in 2013.

Lincoln - Nebraska's Leigha Brown was named the Big Ten Women's Basketball Freshman of the Week when the conference announced its weekly honors on Monday, Jan. 7.

Brown put together the best two performances of her young career in back-to-back Big Ten road games for the Huskers last week. She averaged 19.5 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.5 steals in 18.0 minutes per game off the bench for the Big Red.

The 6-1 guard/forward, who leads all Big Ten freshmen in scoring in conference contests at 16.7 points per game, scored a then-career-high 19 points in Nebraska's 78-69 road win at defending Big Ten champion Ohio State on New Year's Eve. Brown hit 4-of-9 shots from the field, including a pair of three-pointers against the Buckeyes, while also knocking down 9-of-12 free throws to lead the Huskers to their first true road win of the season.

The true freshman from Auburn, Indiana was even better the next time out at No. 19 Iowa, putting up a career-high 20 points on 6-of-10 shooting from the field, while connecting on 3-of-4 three-point attempts. Brown also hit 5-of-6 free throws and tied a career high with two steals in 18 minutes against the Hawkeyes. She scored six of her points in the closing minutes to lead a furious Husker rally that cut a 12-point Iowa lead with four minutes left to just two points in the final minute.

On the season, Brown is Nebraska's second-leading scorer at 10.4 points per game, trailing only fellow freshman Sam Haiby (10.7 ppg). Brown ranks seventh among all Big Ten freshman in scoring on the season.

Brown and the Huskers will play host to No. 9 Maryland on Tuesday night at Pinnacle Bank Arena. Tip-off between Nebraska (7-7 overall, 2-1 Big Ten) and the Terrapins (13-1 overall, 2-1 Big Ten) is set for 7 p.m., and tickets are available now at Huskers.com.

North Platte, Neb. (June 14, 2019) – A potential win in North Platte will get Blake Chauvin farther down the road.

 

The Raceland, Louisiana cowboy had a time of 7.8 seconds in the tie-down roping during the third night of the Buffalo Bill Rodeo, to tie for the lead in the second round in his event.

 

He rode a thirteen year old sorrel mare named Sister, who he purchased a year ago. The mare has been a blessing, he said. “She always works good, scores good, stops and pulls,” Chauvin said. Sister has her moments, though. “She’s a nag,” he said. “She can be mean sometimes, and sometimes she’s just the coolest horse to be around. It’s mood swings, I guess.”

 

A 2018 high school graduate, Chauvin, who is nineteen years old, began pro rodeo as soon as high school was over. He’s rodeoing fulltime, and a check from the Buffalo Bill Rodeo will help get him farther down the road.

 

But rodeo was not his first love. His granddad, Ridley Chauvin, was a tie-down roper and wanted his grandson to rope. Blake was not interested, choosing football instead. When he was fourteen years old, he got on a good horse and picked up a rope, and was hooked. “Grandpa roped calves all his life, and growing up, he always wanted me to rope. I didn’t want to rope at first. I just wanted to play football.” Once he started, “I’ve loved it since.”

 

Chauvin did well through the winter, rodeoing in the southeastern part of the U.S. The summer has been slow, though. “I’ve had a little rough start to the summer,” he said. The potential win in North Platte will get him started. “I had to get things going,” he said.

 

Like many other cowboys, Chauvin would someday like to qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo and be like twenty-four time world champion Trevor Brazile. “That’s everybody’s goal, to be the next Trevor Brazile. He’s a great guy. That’s every cowboy’s dream, to be like him.”

 

And the first phone call he makes after he’s done roping is to his granddad Ridley and grandma Joanna. “He tells me to call him as soon as I’m done roping,” Chauvin said. Chauvin sends videos of his runs to Joanna, who shows the videos to Ridley, because Ridley’s phone is a flip phone.

 

Chauvin will not place in the average; on his first run during slack earlier in the week, he did not make a qualified run.

 

Other fast times and high scores from the Friday night performance are bareback rider Mason Clements, Draper, Utah (82 points); steer wrestlers Denell Henderson, Damascus, Ark. and Tanner Brunner, Ramona, Kan. (4.2 seconds each); saddle bronc rider Shorty Garrett, Eagle Butte, S.D. (87 points); team ropers Bubba Buckaloo, Kingston, Okla./Shay Dixon Carroll, La Junta, Colo. (5.3 seconds); and barrel racer Shali Lord, Lamar Colo. (17.44 seconds). No bull riders made qualified rides tonight.

 

The final night of rodeo in North Platte wraps up on Saturday, June 15 when champions will be crowned and custom engraved buckles awarded to winners. The big rodeo parade takes place on Saturday at 1 pm. NebraskalandDays continues with more activities through June 22. The celebration wraps up next weekend with concerts by Jake Owen and special guests the Casey Donahew Band and the Whiskey Bent Band (June 21) and Kane Brown with special guests Lindsay Ell and Travis Denning (June 22).

North Platte, Neb. (June 13, 2019) – The fast time in the barrel racing at the Buffalo Bill Rodeo came during the second performance, on June 13.

 

Barrel racer Emily Miller stopped the clock at 17.64 seconds to take over the lead.

 

The Weatherford, Oklahoma cowgirl was aboard her ten-year-old gelding Chongo, whose registered name is Namgis D 33.

 

It was the third rodeo back for the gray gelding, who was hurt at the Guymon, Okla. rodeo in early May. “He had two runs before this,” Miller said, “and tonight he definitely had his confidence back.”

 

Barrel racing horses can sometimes show a preference for indoor arenas or outdoor arenas, but Chongo does well at both. His owner and rider, Miller, doesn’t always. “I don’t ride him as well outside,” she said. “I have to really focus. He does his job. It’s just a matter of me doing mine.”

 

Chongo was trained and futuried on by Kylie Weast and purchased from Namgis Quarter Horses of Hondo, Texas. Miller has ridden him all winter, but it’s been hit and miss as far as winning. She and Chongo won a round at rodeos in Denver and San Antonio, but “we couldn’t put it all together with back to back runs.” At Rodeo Austin, she won her biggest check of the year: over $13,000. “That gave me a lot of confidence.”

 

Miller, who is a dental hygienist during the week and a barrel racer on weekends and during the summer, is ranked eighteenth in the world standings with nearly $33,000 won.

 

The leader in the second round of the tie-down roping is an Oklahoma man, Caddo Lewallen.

 

Lewallen, Morrison, Okla., had a time of 7.8 seconds to top the scoreboard.

 

He was aboard a ten-year-old bay mare, a horse he bought as a two-year-old and trained himself.

 

Lewallen, the son of Kerry and Vicki Lewallen, roped in high school and competed at the state and national levels while in high school, following in his dad’s footsteps as a tie-down roper. “It was something I’ve always been around. It’s what I do,” he said.

 

The 35-year-old cowboy competed in slack the morning of June 13 and left nearly as soon as he was done, headed for rodeos in Canada. He’ll spend the next two weeks in Canada then come back to the States.

 

His family, which includes wife Christy and daughters, ages eight and four, travel with him during the summers. In the winters, he travels with fellow steer wrestlers, but in the summers, his family goes along. “We take off and do our own thing,” he said. “We’re together all summer, and when the kids go back to school, we have to be home.”

 

They make sure to take time for the kids as they travel. In North Platte, the girls enjoyed Cody Park, and they visit parks, zoos, and swimming pools at the places they visit. 

 

Lewallen has qualified eight times for the Prairie Circuit Finals Rodeo, the regional rodeo championship for Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma and has won the average there three times.

 

Other fast times and high scores from Thursday’s slack and performance are bareback rider Joel Schlegel, Burns, Colo. (86 points); steer wrestler Reed Kraeger, Elwood, Neb. (3.7 seconds); saddle bronc rider Shane Proctor, Grand Coulee, Wash. (83 points); team ropers Paul David Tierney, Oklahoma City, Okla./Tanner Braden, Dewey, Okla. (5.7 seconds); and bull rider Parker Breding, Edgar, Mont. (83 points).

 

The third night of action at the Buffalo Bill rodeo takes place Friday, June 14. The rodeo starts at 8 pm. Tickets are available online at www.NebraskalandDays.com and at the gate. For more information, visit the website.
