Travis Harrison - Backwoods Badass
Training in Austere Environments is no foreign concept to Travis Harrison. The 23 year old trains out of a barn in balmy Jesup, Georgia. Last year the former defensive end from Valdosta State tried his hand at CrossFit. He placed 20th at the 2009 Dirty South Regional Qualifier. "I had only been doing CrossFit for a couple of months before that, so the workout with the double-unders really killed me... I had never done them before."
Recently he posted a 3:07 Gorda Fran (21,15, 9 thrusters at 135 pounds and pull ups) on the CrossFit Football site. It caused such a stir on the internet that Travis replicated the effort on film - and faster - clocking a 2:50. The pull ups don't meet Games standards, but the feat is amazing. This athlete can generate some serious power. The Georgia Sectional, on February 27 and 28th, will be the initial step towards Aromas for Travis.
