Selland, Fredericks named to ND Cowboy Hall of Fame

Former PRCA members Lee Selland and John (Buzz) Fredericks have been named to the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame by the NDCHF trustees in the Modern-Era Rodeo category. Induction ceremonies will be held at 1 p.m. (MT) June 26 in Medora, ND.

Selland, of Bismarck, ND, competed in more than 650 rodeos from 1963-2005 as a versatile timed-event cowboy. In 1970, he claimed an unprecedented achievement, winning four saddles at the North Dakota Rodeo Association championships – calf roping, steer wrestling, team roping and all-around cowboy.

Through the years, he won 22 championships nationwide. Selland has produced and managed rodeos all over North Dakota and taught countless rodeo schools. He owns and operates a horse stable near Bismarck and still competes in several rodeos a year.



Fredericks, of Twin Buttes, entered bareback riding, saddle bronc riding and steer wrestling events from 1947-64. During the 1950s, he took up bull riding, steer riding and wild horse racing. He closed out his circuit days as a team roper.

Fredericks appeared at Madison Square Garden in 1959, the Calgary Stampede and the National Western Stock Show in Denver. He was also a school teacher, Community Action Program Director and business consultant in Indian education, agriculture and economic development. He died in 2006.
