T.J. Logan Named NCHSAA Athlete of the Year

  • Logan Named NCHSAA Athlete of the Year

    By NCHSAA Release

    UNC signee T.J. Logan of Northern Guilford High School has been named the boys winner of the 2013 Athlete of the Year award by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA).

    These are the top athletic awards given by the NCHSAA to honor the most outstanding male and female high school athletes in the state. They were presented at the Dean E. Smith Center on the University of North Carolina campus during the NCHSAA's Annual Meeting on Thursday.
    The winners were selected by a special panel which includes media representatives from across the state. They were each presented with the Pat Best Memorial Trophy, named for the former Goldsboro High principal and president of the NCHSAA who died unexpectedly in 1988.

    "On behalf of our Board of Directors and the entire membership of the NCHSAA, we congratulate these outstanding student-athletes on their tremendous achievements during their high school careers," said Davis Whitfield, commissioner of the NCHSAA. "Both have extremely impressive credentials which are in the same vein as previous winners of this award, and we certainly wish them well in their future pursuits."

    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.

    He will be attending the University of North Carolina on a football scholarship.

    This is the 28th year in which awards have been given to the top overall male and female athletes. Previous winners of the award include:
