The 11-year-old was the winner of our competition for a local child to present the match ball to the umpires before the Eagles’ pres-season game against Gold Coast.
“He had a really great time and was so excited when he was on the ground,” mum Janine Butterfield said. “His grandfather entered him into the competition and he was very excited when he saw the boys run past him just before the game.
“Travis is a big Eagles fan and he was really happy that he got to see guys like Nic Naitanui up close.”
“It was a great game and to see West Coast get home with basically the last kick of the game topped off an awesome day for Travis.”
