    Travis Milne

    Age:
    14
    State:
    Texas
    Sports:
    Rugby
    BIO
    It took Travis almost a year to find a rugby team after he moved to the U.S. from South Africa in 2007, but since joining the Plano Predators U-15 as a fly-half, he's reached new heights. This season Travis has scored eight tries and 17 conversions for the Predators and was selected to play for the North Texas High Performance Rugby team. Travis's goal is to make the U.S. team for the 2016 Olympics, the first time the sport will be included in the Games since 1924. "I like rugby because of the pace, and players get to play 80 full minutes," he says.
