Fun Fact:
Travis Murao was introduced to wheelchair rugby by Duncan Campbell, one of the inventors of the sport. He started playing while still in G.F. Strong Rehabilitation Hospital and quickly became hooked on the intellectual side of the sport. Travis is known for his sense of humour and his love of reading. He’s blogged about wheelchair rugby and starred in the humorous podcast “Wheelchair Rugby Talk with Trev n’ Trav” with his teammate Trevor Hirschfield. Travis’ passion for both English Literature and wheelchair rugby took him to Tucson where he studied English at the University of Arizona and won a US Quad Rugby Association national championship title with the Tucson Pterodactyls.
