This 2008 GSAC All-Freshman team member earned three Great South All-Conference honors while excelling in the classroom with three GSAC Academic All-Conference honors. Travis is the son of Clarence Bolton and Tracey Hord.

"We are very proud of these two young men to be recognized as All-South team members", stated Coach Pepe Fernandez. "To be honored by and voted by opposing coaches is an extreme honor. We will miss their leadership and outstanding play on the field as they graduate this spring."
