HOUSTON - A cowboy from Hockley is a champ once again after Fred Whitfield won the 2013 RodeoHouston BP Super Series Tie-Down Roping Championship Saturday at Reliant Stadium.

Whitfield, an eight-time champion, won with a time of 7.8 seconds as he secured a young calf. His 2013 Super Series winnings totaled $57,000.
