Lawrence Co. Head Coach Travis Feltner
“… Very honored to receive such an award. I’ve never been big on individual accolades and awards. I am very proud to be a part of our baseball program. There’s been so many great people that have been an integral part of what we have today. Obviously coach Keeton laid a solid foundation and afforded me the opportunity here. We’ve had great consistency for a very long time. I feel like our program is about as blue collar as they come, built by a lot of hard work and sacrifice.
“… I’ve been so blessed through the years to have guys like David Michael being involved at every level. Currently, in my opinion we have the best coaching staff anywhere- our players are always prepared and have great character men surrounding them- Matt Maynard, Steven Blevins, Julius Musick, and Jackie Holt.
My wife and my kids have been beyond understanding and supportive the entire time. It’s a hard thing being a coach – as my family and I have sacrificed a lot that most people have no idea. I’ve always felt called of God into this field and at the end of the day, I hope I’ve had a decent impact on our kids, school and community.”
“… I am really bad to not slow down and reflect and enjoy certain things. The last couple of weeks I’ve had an opportunity to do that. The outpouring of messages and calls from past players and parents has been overwhelming. And I’d love to publicly thank every last one of them.“
