He helped coach 24 positions players that were named All-GLVC in addition to eight All-Region selections, and two All-Americans.
“Logan has been invaluable to our program,” said Drury head coach Scott Nasby. “He has been dedicated to the growth of our young men on our team with always the mindset of bringing those up around us first. He was a huge piece of our success here and we know he will be wildly successful at Nixa. We wish Logan, Janessa, Luke and Zack all the best in their new adventures as Nixa Eagles.”
