John D Holleyman

John D. Holleyman won his first money at Pecos, Texas in the calf roping in 1940 and he quickly developed into a really fast roper. His speedy roping helped him to place at New York City, Phoenix, Tucson, Denver, Pecos, Las Vegas, Colorado Springs and at many other RCA rodeos. At the West of the Pecos Rodeo, John D won the Steer Wrestling in 1947 and the Team Roping in 1955, 1970 and 1974. In 1955, he was named the All-Around cowboy at Pecos.  John D was inducted into the Texas Rodeo Hall of Fame in 2009.
