When he was 15 years old, Travis walked up to the sports editor of the newspaper in Thomasville, Ga., and asked if he could write stories about his high school football team. The sports editor said yes and a storytelling journey was born. Two decades later, it continues after stops at various newspapers, ESPN.com and CBS/247Sports. Along the way, Travis has covered The Masters, Major League Baseball and every major conference in college football. It’s been an enchanted ride, but telling and sharing people’s stories has and always will be his true passion. Haney lives in Nashville, Tenn., with his awesome toy Australian Shepherd, Kit.
