Wichita Trinity’s Logan Burgess – Kansas Turnpike Authority: Driving Change Athlete of the Month

 

Wichita Trinity’s Logan Burgess
Kansas Turnpike Authority: Driving Change Athlete of the Month

A two-sport athlete at Wichita Trinity High School, senior Logan Burgess is making the most of every opportunity before he walks across the stage and starts a new chapter in life. This year is promising to be special for the starting defensive back on the football team. Playing football with his friends and teammates this fall is one of many reasons Burgess is excited to get the new school year started. “What I enjoy most about being a student-athlete at Trinity are all the friendships I have made with my teammates and being able to play the sports I love in a good environment,” said Burgess. “What I love most about my teammates is I know that they always have my back no matter what.”

Trinity head coach Wes Miller knows his players very well and Burgess is one that stands out for his involvement in the community and his play on the field. “Logan is a dual-sport athlete who represents everything Trinity Academy stands for. He is a very humble individual who looks for ways to serve others in his community. Logan has a bright future ahead of him and will be a valuable asset to whatever college he decides to attend,” said coach Miller.

Besides football, Burgess also runs track in the spring, but like his peers there is one thing that comes before athletics. “Academics are important to me because keeping my grades up helps me stand out to college coaches,” said Burgess.

Burgess would love an opportunity to play football at the next level. From the classroom to the weight room, Burgess continually works to improve in both areas. The defensive back has the determination it takes to succeed at the next level. If football is not an option moving forward, Burgess said he has a plan for that as well. “I am going into my senior year, and after I graduate, I either plan to play sports in college or go to Kansas State and major in business,” said Burgess.

Away from school, Burgess said he enjoys spending time with his family and friends. “In my free time, I enjoy working out and hanging out with friends. My dad has always had a big influence on me on and off the field because he pushes me to do my best and has taught me many lessons I will hold on to for the rest of my life,” said Burgess.
