Rodeo Champions

The Superman Trophy

All PJ Rodeo competitors are winners.  Few who apply finish the gauntlet and become Pararescuemen.  Those who compete at the PJ Rodeo are at the tip of the readiness spear.

Competing for 1st, 2nd or 3rd place in the PJ Rodeo is a little like winning the Super Superman Trophy.  All competitors have already been to Superman School and passed.  Members of the 2-man PJ Teams competing in the PJ Rodeo takes home the trophy.

The PJ Rodeo is a friendly competition, but it is a TOUGH competition designed to test the skills and endurance of each PJ competitor, while employing the equipment, tactics and procedures used by Pararescuemen on the battlefield, and in humanitarian relief actions in today’s missions, in harsh and hostile environments at home, and around the world.

 Who’s Next?

As you look through the list of winners, don’t think there are any losers… there aren’t any.

All competitors arrived at the 2018 PJ Rodeo as winners.  All competitors return to their units and teams, as winners.

No one goes home any less of a winner than they arrived.

This is a proving ground for the toughest of the tough.

The PJ Rodeo unites the brotherhood, celebrates the courage and commitment of every man that was, and is today a Pararescueman.
