"Give God the Glory. Because that's what we were created for."
Tuf Cooper is a household name in the western world. Known for his tie-down roping skills and strong rodeo family lineage, you might be surprised to know that Tuf has also appeared in the Hollywood lights in movies such as The Grand Champion and The Blood Trail. But don't think his 15 mins of fame has caused him to stray from his roots. Tuf contributes much of his success to the support and coaching he has received from his brother Clif, his uncle Stran Smith and brother-in-law Trevor Brazile.
If Tuf wasn't in the arena? He says he'd be roping in speeding tickets as a Highway Patrol Officer.
