Meet Frank


1.) When did you first become a fan of Travis'?

(A.) During the 96-97 season Travis got called up to the Worcester Ice Cats from Baton Rouge of the ECHL. From the first game I saw him played, I liked him. Then I met him, and found out how nice of a guy he was. He became one of my top 3 all time favorite hockey players.

2.) Why did you become a fan of his? What do you like best about him?

(A.) I was always a fan of goalies and since my previous favorite goalie (Blaine Lacher), who I think fell off the face of the earth stopped playing hockey so I needed a new favorite. Travis seemed to remind me of Blaine so I started following him closely. I would have to say the thing I like best about Travis is he is not only a great player, but a great guy off the ice.

3.) What sorts of items can be found in your Travis Scott collection? 

(A.) I have 4 game-used sticks (3 he gave me), 96-97 game-worn road Worcester Ice Cats jersey, game-used catch glove from when he played on Lowell, just about all of his trading cards, Worcester Ice Cats photo pin signed by him, a mini goalie stick signed by him, and tons of other miscellaneous items.

4.) What is your most memorable Travis moment? (Could be a game or an appearance)

(A). The moment I have in mind is probably not Travis' most memorable moment or a Manchester Monarchs fans most memorable moment. It is the one Travis moment that sticks in my head. It was during a regular season game during the 2002-2003 season. The Monarchs were crushing Worcester 6-1 going into the 3rd period. Then before I knew it, Worcester was only down 6-4. The Monarchs replaced goaltender, Jeff Sanger with Travis Scott. The ref dropped the puck while Travis was still in the middle of his stretching routine, and Worcester came down and scored to make it 6-5. They tied it before the end of regulation. Worcester got a goal in OT to give the Ice Cats a dramatic come from behind win. I was pumped because I am a Worcester fan, but I felt bad for Travis because he is one of my favorite players.
