Senior Spotlight: Logan Head of Williston

Logan Head certainly made the most of his athletic career at Williston High School.

The Class of 2021 graduate played football for the Red Devils and also won a state baseball title as a sophomore.

His favorite high school sports moment was when Williston (21-9) defeated Chiefland to win the 2019 FHSAA baseball Class 1A state championship.

Head, who went 1-for-2 with a run scored in the final against the Indians, batted .361 as a sophomore and finished second on the 2019 team with seven doubles and 22 runs driven in.

This past year he tied Mikey Rey for the best batting average on the team (.405) and the most hits (32). The pair also led the team with nine doubles apiece.

Williston coach Mike Bullock said Head, who hit in the cleanup spot all year long, got better as the year progressed.

“He loves to compete and never backs down,” Bullock said. “He has power and can hit to all fields. He is a gap-to-gap hitter and really came through for us. He never went into a slump and stayed in the 4-hole all year.”

However, Bullock noted it was his defense as catcher made him stand out.

“His most valuable part to our team is what he did behind the plate,” Bullock explained. “He has a good throwing arm, he blocks the baseball well with energy and passion, and loves to throw behind runners.”

Head only made two errors all season and finished with a .985 fielding percentage.

“He also led our pitching staff and has great relationships with those guys and can keep them mentally at their best,” Bullock said. “Also, he’s a very accountable player, never late and if anything would come up, he would be in touch with me.”

Head earned All Area honors in baseball this past spring and defensive MVP and Co-offensive MVP for this year’s regional finalists, who lost 12-6 to eventual state champion Newberry.

However, Head said it was more than athletics that he will remember as he looks back on his time at Williston High School.

“I will most remember my teammates, classmates and teachers,” he said. “The people are what made my high school experience so special.”

Head plans to attend Santa Fe College, where he will play baseball and earn his associate’s degree.
