Logan Pell has been nominated for the Dedication Award by Valerie Rayce. He has been nominated for his resilience after an injury.
On April 15, 2012, Logan was involved in an accident that left him with a broken leg, broken arm and a forearm that was cut to the bone. A rod was inserted into his right femur, plates and screws were added to his left arm and surgery was needed to repair his nerves and arteries.
Logan returned to full school days in mid-May while continuing physical therapy and summer workouts. He was released to participate on the basketball court at the end of June. He began running, shooting baskets and working on his arm and hand strength. As summer closed, he began working in the weight room three days per week and worked in the pool two days per week. With help from the athletic training staff, Logan continued to progress. He continued to work on his strength and ball handling, constantly telling his teammates to push him to the left so he could use it more.
As the starting point guard and Team Captain, he led his team to a County Title and to the Sectional Finals. He started every game, had a field goal percentage of .333, led the county in assists and had 17 steals. He was also the team's best defender and was always assigned to guard the opponent's biggest scoring threat.
Off the court, Logan excels in school. He maintains a 3.99 GPA and participates in Future Farmers of America.
