NOTES:

I had a burst of inspiration and sent out quite a few CFL All World cards about this time. I was certain I’d hear back from Barrett as he was a coach with my favorite team, but after not hearing back from him a year later I sort of gave up on getting these back. Lo and behold over 450 days later this showed up in the mail shortly after the Texans 2020 season concluded.

Feeney, Travis

Cards: Topps AAF 2019, Topps AAF Certified 2019
Acquired: TTM 2019, C/o Home
Sent: 12/2 Received: 12/17 (15 days)

Travis Feeney played college ball at Washington. He saw action in 51 games for the Huskies over 4 years at linebacker. His best year arguably came in 2015, when he notched 56 total tackles, 17.5 tackles for loss, 8 sacks, 2 pass deflections, and 1 fumble recovery. Sometimes deployed in coverage, Feeney recorded 11 career pass deflections, and 4 interceptions for 148 yards and a TD.

He was a 6th round pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and spent most of the season on their practice squad, before ending the year on the roster of the New Orleans Saints. Cut in mid 2017, Feeney kept in playing shape, and signed with the San Diego Fleet in 2018. He had a solid year during the AAF‘s short 8 game season, posting 28 tackles, and a pick.

Travis spent the next year in the CFL, first briefly with the Alouettes, and then the Argonauts- but with COVID striking down the CFL, Feeney opted out of his contract and decided to give The Spring League a shot, playing for the Jousters.
