Athlete of the Week: Logan Williams - January 29th

Posted: Updated:

Evangel senior heavyweight wrestler, Logan Williams, is a well known name in the wrestling circuit across the state but that hasn't always been the case. Williams started wrestling only four short years ago.

"After the first day it was 50/50 to see if I'd keep doing it but it turns out I did and it turned out pretty well," said Williams. "I'd say it's one of the toughest sports there is."

Head coach Michael Guerrero remembers that day four years ago when Williams joined the team.

"I knew he had potential and he stuck with it and he's be awesome."

Awesome, indeed. Williams is the top ranked heavyweight in D-III and is the No. 3 wrestler in the state. A former baseball and football player, Williams not only excels on the mat but in the classroom. He holds a 3.8 GPA.
