It seems in the last several years that the North Carolina football program has really begun to emerge. As our team grows, so does our recognition and it expands not only to our team, but the players and recruits off the field.
2013 running back commitment TJ Logan was named the North Carolina High School Athletic Association Male Athlete of the Year on Thursday.
Logan was presented the award at the Dean Smith Center on the campus of his future school along side Hailey Cook, who won the female athlete of the year award.
Logan and Cook were selected by a panel that consisted of members of the state media.
High School OT wrote this of Logan:
Logan has been a standout throughout his Northern Guilford career in football, basketball, and outdoor track. In football, he helped lead the Nighthawks to three consecutive NCHSAA state championships, including rushing for a whopping 3,146 yards during the fall and earning Most Valuable Player honor in the 2012 state championship game with 510 yards and eight touchdowns. He was the Mid-State Conference Player of the Year in football.
In basketball, he was a three-time all-conference selection and runner-up for Conference Player of the Year honors. He scored 15.5 points per game, grabbed 4.8 rebounds an outing and handed out 6.1 assists. He is the defending NCHSAA 3-A champion in the 200 meters and was the state runner-up last year in the 100 meters. In competition this spring, his times are better in both events.
Logan will begin his study and playing this fall in Chapel Hill and will compete against Romar Morris to see who will play behind AJ Blue!
Logan appears to be a pretty decent basketball player himself in addition to his football honors. Could Logan try out to play for Roy Williams as a walk-on? I’d say why not give it a shot!
