NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. (WC)-- Meet Travis Brown, Head Men's Lacrosse Coach! He came to Westminster College from San Diego, California and enjoys being outside at the beach and is an avid surfer. What's his advice for getting up in the morning and starting off a great day?
"At the start of your day, it's important to move your body for 30 minutes. Whether it's walking, running, lifting - or anything that increases your heart rate - it helps get you in the mindset to attack the rest of the day. Also, carving out time slots for personal thought and activities throughout your day is important - like researching personal topics or taking time to care for yourself."
Coach Brown enters his third season as the head coach of the Westminster men’s lacrosse team in 2021. Brown was the assistant coach for the Titans in 2018. Prior to Westminster, Brown served as a graduate assistant at Heidelberg University.
