Recruited by the West Coast Eagles with their first selection (number 14 overall) in the 1999 National Draft, Travis Gaspar has the makings of a standout key position player. “Whatever he does on the training track, he does at a hundred miles an hour,” was the summation of Travis from former West Coast great, John Worsfold.
Despite the obvious talent, he has struggled with injury in recent seasons. A stellar 2002 was ended following a broken foot in round twelve, and 2003 and 2004 have both been interrupted by similar injuries.
