is featured. Logan was ranked as the No. 18 player on the Inside Lacrosse Top 20 Post-Graduate Recruits and was the No. 3 goaltender on the list.

On the possibility of seeing significant time as a freshman goalie … “It’s definitely exciting. There was a lot of hard work that went into the offseason. It has been nice working with Dylan (Westerhold), who is definitely a great role model. He is very hardworking, and has been especially useful in showing me how to get things done, while Coach (Keith) Euker has been very supportive both on the field and off the field.”

On prep school preparing him to be a Division I goalkeeper … “It definitely helped with the mental aspect, not even just playing goalie, but getting used to school and the course work, and everything else that comes with moving away. From a goalkeeper perspective, I got to lead kids that were much younger than me because that’s the way the prep school process works. It was nice to show me what it takes to be a leader and what it takes to win and how much hard work you have to put in.”

On his goalkeeping style … “I’m extremely explosive. I don’t have the best positioning, but I’m really explosive and have quick hands. I need to work on my body position and communication, but my explosiveness is definitely my best skill. I’m also good at running the ball up the field, but I need to stop and realize the plays to make and the plays not to make.”

On being part of Michigan’s first lacrosse recruiting class and the upcoming season … “Just being able to play Division I lacrosse will be great. I’ve been playing lacrosse since second grade, every weekend waking up at six to practice, every day even when you’re hitting a wall. It is very exciting when you finally meet your goals, especially being the first class. We have a lot of hard work ahead of us, but we also have a great work ethic on the team.”

On what drew him to Michigan … “Besides the academics, it’s the facilities, the coaching staff, everyone was personable. Everyone on the team wants to work hard regardless; they want it worse than anybody. That is what made me want to come to Michigan.”
