After experiencing a tumultuous early childhood, young Travis turned all his energy to the only thing he knew he could count on—sports. After excelling in high school basketball and becoming his school’s first great player, however, his life took a fateful and tragic turn.

In his compelling memoir, The Westcoast Kid, Waters chronicles the events that led up to his decision to embark on a different path in life—away from college and into the dangerous world of drug smuggling for Pablo Esobar’s cartel. As he became immersed in the lure of fast money and beautiful women, his life began spiraling downhill; eventually, he was arrested and convicted of drug charges, forcing him to enter the turbulent prison system. While detailing how life behind the prison walls became a struggle to survive when they found out his high school rival was NFL star Deion Sanders, he also shares how he found the determination to rebuild his life once he was released.

Waters tells the inspiring story of his struggle to find his place in life hoping to encourage young adults to shun bad choices, opt for the right path, and follow their dreams.
