Drive by the Starkville Sportsplex and it is not hard to miss Travis Outlawâ€™s name on the side of the building, but for the former Yellowjacket and current National Basketball Association athlete, it is more about what takes place inside the building than what it is on the outside.
â€ś(Travis) wants it to be where people want to come,â€ť Outlawâ€™s older brother John said. â€śThis is what the facility is for. It is all about giving the people of Starkville somewhere to go and something to do. We have racquetball, basketball courts, (and) the walking track. It is for people to come and be active. For years, there was nowhere to go or you had to do things outside and now we have this great facility.â€ť
