Cowboy Up Tee
Lane was great because he always had time for his fans and family. But he also knew when it was time to cowboy up and get a job done. His toughness is best summarized by what he had to ride through in 1987 to win the World Championship.
He won the World Championship, despite being off for three weeks in August 1987 when he broke his collarbone on August 20th at the Elks PRCA Rodeo in Seminole, OK. Although he slightly re-injured the collarbone several times near the end of the season, he felt he couldn't take anymore time off without hurting his chances for the Championship.
