ATHLETIC DIRECTOR

Travis Plowden is entering his 11th year at Laurens Academy and this will be his 8th as Athletic Director. He is a 2005 graduate of North Greenville University with a degree in history. The first three years of his coaching career were spent at Wardlaw Academy. In 2008 he made the move to Laurens and continued his career at LA. Coach Plowden has been an assistant coach in many sports but has focused mostly on basketball and golf. Since 2012 he has been the varsity boy’s basketball head coach. He teaches several history classes during the day and he is as passionate in the classroom as he is on the court. Coach Plowden met his wife Emily at Laurens Academy and they married in 2012.

Contact Travis Plowden

"I like the fact that my teachers and coaches are free to share their faith through Bible study and prayer. Beginning the day with prayer and devotion time in the locker room is a great privilege. I have been an FCA leader and spend regular Bible study time with other leaders and Coach Plowden."
