Travis Demeritte was a two-time participant at Cooperstown Dreams Park, both times with the Georgia Bandits (GA) – first during Week 1 in 2005 and again in Week 12 (N.A.T.C.) in 2007. Travis and the fifth-seeded Georgia Bandits took home the N.A.T.C. title in 2007 with a 5-4 victory over second-seeded Team Anderson (CA) in the championship game.
Travis continued his baseball career at Winder-Barrow High School (Winder, GA) where he graduated in 2013. During his senior year, he recorded a .404 BA (36-for-89) with 12 home runs, 37 RBI and five stolen bases. Travis also competed with the East Cobb Braves during the summer. Travis's accolades include Perfect Game's Underclass All Americans and All Regions honors (2011 Underclass 2nd team and 2012 Underclass 1st team) as well as 2013 Rawlings 1st Team All-American and Southeast All Region 1st Team.
Prior to his high school graduation, Travis committed to the University of South Carolina (Columbia, SC). Instead of playing at the collegiate level, Travis made the leap to professional baseball after the Texas Rangers selected him as the 30th overall pick in the 2013 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft.
