Trevor Knowles Hits the Hall of Fame!

Trevor Knowles

Trevor Knowles, our Purple Cowboy endorsee on the PRCA circuit and 11-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo steer wrestler, was named to the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in Stillwater, Okla., as part of its Class of 2015 Oregon chapter honorees.

The Hall of Fame is also giving him the Outstanding American award for his rodeo and wrestling accomplishments as well as his work with the nonprofit Operation Comfort Warriors – an American Legion program in which Knowles visits military veterans across the country.

“I think wrestling’s making a comeback,” he said.

He’s still involved in wrestling, supporting the USA Wrestling Building Blocks program and helping coach youth at the Grant County Freestyle Wrestling Club in John Day in the winter.

His brother Drew, who has two children in the local club, also helps with coaching.

Trevor said it helps when young athletes have good coaches who are able to communicate.

“(You get it) coached into you,” he said.

His advice to youth: “Athlete or not, don’t be afraid to work hard for whatever it is – it will all pay off.”
