COACH'S QUOTE – "Logan's passion and work ethic set him apart both in the school and on the baseball diamond. He is a leader in the school and on the baseball and football fields. He is the hardest worker I've ever coached. Plus, he is even a better person than athlete. He truly cares about others and works with the Special Olympics every opportunity he can."
