Harlingen High’s Travis Barnes to throw shot put at U of H

HARLINGEN —Tuesday couldn’t have come any sooner for Harlingen High track and field standout Travis Barnes.

After signing his letter of intent to compete for the Division I University of Houston in the American Athletic Conference, Barnes was all smiles as he delivered a heartfelt speech to his family, friends and coaches at the Harlingen High School library Tuesday afternoon.

“Today was a very emotional day for me. I knew it was going to be a very special day. It was one of those days that you’ve dreamt of your whole life and you never would have imagined it could happen,” said Barnes. “It happened today and it’s one of those emotions that you don’t know what you’re supposed to do next. It’s definitely one of the best days of my life.”
