FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – March 29, 2022 – Litchfield High School’s Logan King has been named a Scholar-Athlete by the Minnesota Chapter of the National Football Foundation.
This annual award honors Minnesota high school football players for their outstanding athletic, academic and community service accomplishments. King, a native of Litchfield, Minnesota, is one of eight scholar-athletes who will be recognized during this summer’s Minnesota Football Honors show.
“Logan thrived in the classroom by pushing himself with a rigorous academic schedule,” said Todd Fultz, President of the Minnesota Chapter of the National Football Foundation. “He also frequently volunteered his time to help other athletes and became a key player on the field. His achievements in each area of his life are impressive. We are very excited to honor his outstanding accomplishments.”
On the field, Logan King was a star quarterback, wide receiver and safety for the Litchfield Dragons. He earned two-time All-District honors and led his team to a section championship in 2020. King not only made his mark as a playmaker, but became a critical leader for Litchfield’s football program.
“Logan’s character and work ethic make him a likable young man. He is willing to put in the extra time to advance his skills. He is responsible, conscientious and highly self-motivated,” said Litchfield football coach Jim Jackman. “He is respectful and wants to do his best for himself, the team and his coaches. He is a leader through his actions, verbal encouragement and efforts.”
King’s strong leadership skills helped him achieve tremendous success in the classroom and community. He accumulated a 4.0 GPA and finished his high school career with more than 300 community service hours. During his high school years, King also made a difference by serving as a Lutheran Social Services Volunteer, Sunday school teacher, blood drive volunteer and youth coach.
Minnesota Football Honors is hosting a show later this summer to honor its high school, college and Minnesota Vikings award winners. Full broadcast details will be announced in the coming weeks on www.minnesotafootballhonors.com.
