Occupation: Environmental Business Project Manager

Travis Marsh is looking for a second chance. This project manager and father of five was once a 10-time National Junior Champ and member of the U.S. Shooting Team, poised to take the shooting world by storm until, he says, the fame and adulation went to his head. The night before Olympic tryouts, Travis broke his arm in a bar fight and saw his dreams of a gold-medal victory fade away. But now, nearly two decades later, Travis has another chance to prove his shooting skill. This time, though, it will be for his kids.
