Look for a different player featured each day — plus a couple days where will feature more than one. Our third feature is Travis Ward, new to the club in 2022.

1: Did you ever have another dream career besides soccer?
A: Yeah, I wanted to be a professional basketball or baseball player. I was a multi-sport athlete and played all three sports until I got to the collegiate level.

2: How do you decompress after a long week of training?
A: Video games. Pool/ Beach days and hikes with my dog.

3: What was the most nervous you’ve ever been?
A: The most nervous I've ever been was during my best man's speech at my brother's wedding.

4: What are your preferred pre-game, locker room and post-game routines?
A: pregame I like to wake up, have breakfast and hit the gym for 45 min to ride the bike and stretch. Locker room ido my prehab/activation routine and listen to music. Post game i like to stretch, ice bath and eat as much food as possible because i'm usually starving.

5: What’s the most memorable sports moment you’ve had as a fan?
A: Going up to Minnesota and watching the vikings play in their new stadium. It was also my first NFL game live.

6: What sporting event have you always wanted to go to and why?
A: The world cup because it's the greatest tournament in the world and only happens every four years so having an opportunity to go watch a world cup game would be amazing,

7: What’s your go-to meal the night before a match?
A: Chicken Parm

8: You haven't been in Chattanooga for very long yet... have you found any interesting spots or restaurants you enjoy?
A: Yes the restaurant, Mayan Kitchen

9: What do you believe is the greatest challenge most athletes are facing today?
A: Mental Health

10: Who inspired you as a young athlete? Why?
A: My family, older brother, and Allen iverson. Older brother probably the most because we always competed in everything we did and him being 3 years older than me he would always beat up on me. Looking back now I think he's a huge reason why I am the athlete I am today.
