"I am elated to add Travis to the coaching staff and to serve as our pitching coach," says Head Coach Lucas Jones. "Travis brings intangibles to this program and to the ODAC that are hard to fine. He is the model Division III story. He was an All-American at Randolph-Macon College, drafted by the Boston Red Sox and has coached at this level. Along with his excellent Division III and pro experience, he has done an outstanding job manning the pitching staff at VMI the last six seasons. He is a tremendous coach but an even better person."His coaching career began at Randolph-Macon in 2010 following a four-year stint as a member of the Boston Red Sox minor league affiliates, where he pitched at the Single and Double A levels. He was a highly decorated player at R-MC, earning All-American, All-Region, All-State, and All-Conference selections during his career.
