All Inductees

Samuel Paul Humphrey Jr


Born in Belton, Texas, Paul started his rodeo career in 1941. His favorite event was bull riding, although he also rode bareback horses and competed in the steer wrestling. He joined the Cowboys Turtle Association (later the RCA and then the PRCA) in 1942 and traveled mainly in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana, although he did work rodeos across the U.S.

Outgoing, ready to help anyone, he was the type of guy everyone liked. Extremely skilled in competition, his trademark was to wear his hat crossways for luck. Paul’s brother, Bud Humphrey, was inducted into the TRCHOF in 1995.
