Logan Peters will finish his high school career as one of the most celebrated athletes in Wall High School history and in an era of specialization one of the Shore Conference’s premier 3-sport standouts. His accomplishments have helped Peters earn the first-ever Shore Sports Network/94.3 The Point Athlete-of-the-Month award for April.

Peters is now shining on the lacrosse field for the Crimson Knights and if their season opener was any indication it will be quite a finale for the senior attackman.  Picking up right where he left off in the spring of 2019 he scored four goals and added four assists in a win over Southern.  An All-Shore and All-Group II player as a sophomore Peters is headed to Rutgers University on a full lacrosse scholarship.

Many are more familiar with his exploits on the football field where he helped lead Wall to back-to-back finishes as the top team in the Shore Conference.  Playing both quarterback and safety he not only earned All-Shore honors as both a junior and senior but was named to the NJFCA Super 100 All-State teams as well.

In between the fall and spring season, Peters could be found on the basketball court for the Crimson Knights and he helped lead them to the “Pod B” championship while earning 2nd team All-Pod honors for his play during the regular season.

Peters earned a whopping 65% of the vote to easily beat our Lee Rubin of Matawan with Freehold Township’s Daniel Valentine a distant third.

Each Monmouth County high school is eligible to nominate one student-athlete for the monthly honor with the staff of the Shore Sports Network to determine the finalists who viewers have the opportunity to vote for over the course of one week.

Q&A With Logan Peters:

Q:      Did you ever consider giving up one of the sports you play in order to

          devote more time to the others?

A:      I have always played three sports and enjoyed every single one of them.

          There was never a point throughout my high school career where I

          considered not playing one of them.  I always just enjoyed the excitement

          and joy of going to a new sport for another season.  I have always been a

          super competitive kid and playing all three always gave me something to do

          and kept me occupied at all times.  Playing three sports was the best thing I

          ever did because it created countless memories and friends that I am very

          thankful for.

 

Q:      While you are going to Rutgers on a lacrosse scholarship you have had a

          Great deal of success on the football field.  Did you strongly consider

          looking to play football on the college level or was it always lacrosse?

A:       I have loved football my whole life and enjoyed playing.  However I fell in

          love with college lacrosse while in middle school and ever since that was my

          goal.  I went to multiple lacrosse final fours and the energy and atmosphere

          is amazing.  It’s a dream of mine to play in a National Championship which

          I hope I can do at Rutgers.

 

Q:      A year ago at this time you were probably wondering if you would have

          any sports to play as a senior.  How grateful are you to have had the

          opportunity to play all three?

A:       I am unbelievably thankful and grateful that I was able to play all three. 

          There was a lot of doubt but our teams stayed smart and safe and made it

          happen.  With some of my junior year taken away I am happy I got to enjoy

          playing all three sports with my teammates and coaches and creating

          memories while making history.

 

Q:      Is there one moment in your high school career that stands out from all

          the rest?

A:       I have countess memories throughout my athletic career at Wall but the

          number one moment is during my sophomore year in a football playoff

          game where I had to go in and play quarterback.  Our starter got hurt and

          I got thrown into a big moment but I played well and it gave me confidence

          which carried over for the rest of my career.  This moment helped shaped

          me into the player I am today.
