High school athletics are done for the year as the 2017-2018 school year comes to a close.
This is also the time of year where some students are looking to the future.
One senior is already getting a start on that.
Idaho Falls pitcher Logan Ferguson signed his letter of intent to take his talents to the next level.
Ferguson earlier today committed to play for Iowa Lakes Community College in Estherville Iowa.
Baseball for Ferguson has had a large impact throughout Logan’s life.
He and his dad, Jeremy, say they have developed a close bond through the game.
“Since we were 8 9 years old, we’d travel every weekend, every big weekend, every Memorial Day, any holiday we were traveling together,” says Jeremy, “And so it was always me and him he was my little rhody, and uh lots of hotels, lots of ball fields that we’ve got all over the country, and do this that so it was a great bonding opportunity.”
“It’s one of the things we can always sit down and talk about and just have fun doing together,” says Logan.
Recently appointed athletic director and former head baseball coach at Idaho Falls, Pat Lloyd says Ferguson ahs been an anchor on the team and the rotation.
He says Logan is a fierce competitor and always a team first kind of player.
Lloyd says an experience he remembers about Logan being a team player comes from the 2017 state tournament.
“One of the bigger things that I can actually remember, one of the bigger games, was actually in state tournament that not this past season but last year, where Jace Jones ends up developing that blister on his finger and pitches one inning and huge blood all over the place and everything like that,” says Lloyd, “so we end up actually grabbing Logan, and he goes down to the bullpen and throws maybe 10-15 pitches and then goes out and finishes the rest of the game against Vallivue.”
Ferguson plans on playing for the bandits this summer before heading off to school.
He tells Sportsline that the head coach there is looking at hims as pitcher but may use him to hit depending on what he thinks.
