Logan Smith is a name which seems to turn up more and more as we discuss the elite talent around the western end of Kentucky. Logan was among the leading rushers, receivers, scorers, and defenders on his team a year ago. We believe Coach Champion has the Lakers headed in an enviable direction and players like Logan Smith will get the program where it wants to go.

Logan Smith understands, as a coach’s son, that leadership occurs from the front of the pack, not rounding out the rear flank. That is why Smith has striven, in his short HS career to date, to allow his play and his production to do his talking.

Smith was the 2nd leading rusher on the ball club as a sophomore. He was among the leaders in receptions, 4th in scoring, led the team in tackles (96), chipped in 6-TFLs, a pair of QB-sacks, a FF, a FR, and an INT. We call that, “…all over the field.”

Smith is 5’11,” weighs close to 200-pounds, runs the 100-meter (Track & Field) in 11.97-seconds, runs the 200-meter (Track & Field) in 23.85, runs the 40-yard dash in 4.66, while carrying a 3.62-GPA. Smith has made All-WKC in football & track and was the Calloway County Defensive player of the Year, in both ’22 and ’23.

Calloway County and HFC, Chris Champion, call on this versatile athlete to perform mightily on Friday Nights. Logan Smith both heeds and answers that summons every time with enviable, unparalleled performance.

Congratulations to Logan Smith, both for his Revolutionary Play, over the course of the ’23 season, and that which is to come as we brace for the Fall of ’24, which is just a few months away whether or not you realize it. Smith’s contribution to his football team has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, your friends at Independence Bank.
