His efforts helped the Highlanders to a 10-6 record.
Head Coach Mark Conklin, said, “We couldn’t have asked for a better person and player to coach over the past four years. Logan’s attitude, effort and selflessness are a great representation of what we hope all players in our program will strive for. His stats over the past four years allowed him to be a part of the All-American conversation, but his heart and character ultimately earned him the honor. True to form, after receiving the recognition, Logan immediately pointed out the contributions of all 25 of his teammates in achieving what he feels is a team award. Needless to say, he is an outstanding young man and player.”
Added Logan, “It is really hard to explain how much it means to be named and All-American. I am honored and proud, but I’d like to thank my teammates and coaches, their efforts made this award possible. This award is great for The Gunnery and Gunnery Lacrosse, and I hope it will lead to great things for the program in the future.”
