After high school Holmes pursued his dream of playing Division I lacrosse at the University of Maryland. At Maryland, he was voted captain his senior year and made two Final Four appearances. Holmes’ two brothers followed in his foot steps, both playing lacrosse at McDonogh School (2000-2009) and the University of Maryland throughout from (2004-2013).

Travis and The Go Site:
Travis is excited to be a part of TGS because he sees this as an opportunity to inform the general public, as well as the lacrosse community, about opportunities to train, find clubs, camps and tournaments. This information will aid young lacrosse players in improving their skills, as well as become a tool to help parents support their son and his goal to become a great lacrosse player. Ultimately, Holmes sees this as a means to help this great sport continue to grow.
