Westminster Commitment

Logan Huggard has committed to play lacrosse at Westminster College.


 Senior Logan “Huggie” Huggard has committed to Westminster College to play NCAA DII lacrosse. Huggard has been a familiar face on the Juan Diego campus as both the starting center for the football team and the starting defenseman for the lacrosse team. 


   Huggard has been playing lacrosse since middle school. “I played lacrosse for five years because of my good friend, Chris Caldwell. He convinced me to play.” 


   Ever since, Huggard has become very involved within Utah’s lacrosse community, joining many Utah-founded clubs such as True Utah and Wasatch LC. 


   Wasatch LC coach Danny Larkin said, “Logan is the prototype for the next wave of defenseman. He’s a big body who’s aggressive, has a good stick, great IQ, and fast feet. He can guard the best player on the field at all times and then push transition and score a quick goal.”


   “It’s no surprise that Logan got picked up. It’s honestly a big steal for Westminster. He’s a big-time player with big-time plays,” Larkin finished. 


   This summer Huggard became the anchor for Wasatch LC’s defense, and it’s been paying off. He’s been recognized as a player to watch at The Legends Western Invitational, and made the all-star team at the True Mountain West Showcase.


   Coming in at 6 feet 2 inches and 205 pounds, Huggard, is a scary  presence on the field and is not a person to mess with. 


  Huggard has all the skills needed to be successful at the next level, he always has a positive attitude and is a great teammate. He has great communication and is the loudest player on the field at all times. 


  Juan Diego coach Greg Stamatov said “ Logan is most definitely a do it all player, always putting in maximum effort on the field, Logan was a mainstay within our defense. Even within all the chaos and cheering from the stands, I would hear Logan calling and managing the defense all around the field.”


   Logan finished the high school season last year having started in all 16 games., with 86 ground balls and 55 takeaways, which makes Logan one of the most skilled and successful defensemen in Utah.


   Huggard said, “Recruitment felt like I was a telemarketer because it consisted of almost entirely phone calls. The reason I picked Westminster was because their head coach was one of the only coaches who met in person and I appreciated his honesty.” 


   Huggard is the only lacrosse commit of the 2022 class at Juan Diego and the 10th on Wasatch LC, joining many of his summer teammates later next fall. He’s expected to make a big impact for Juan Diego this season and become a leader for Westminster’s defense.
