I had the privilege to know both Travis and Seth. Played football with them and was involved in FFA with them as well. Even though I moved away, I will never forget how great they both were to everyone. Great at everything they did and were great to everyone they ever meet. My condolences go out to the Suggs family and the Portland community. God bless you and keep you strong through these hard time. RIP Travis and Seth
