Coweta’s Logan Vaughan – Character Counts Presented By BancFirst Coweta

Logan Vaughan is ready to take the reins as Coweta’s starting catcher. Now a junior, this is Vaughan’s first time starting as a catcher for the Tigers, but it’s a position he’s played since he was in little league. No matter the position, Vaughan has always had success on the baseball field.

Last season, Vaughan started at first base, the same position where he was named to the All-District team. He also batted .320 last season and finished with two home runs on a team that finished 24-11, before eventually falling in the state semifinals.

This season, the Tigers return the talent to make a deeper run this go around in the state tournament.

“We have deep pitching and mainly return the same team,” Vaughan said.

Vaughan plays baseball year-round and is being looked at to play catcher by several colleges. Coweta’s coach, Cody Pair, mentioned Vaughan as being offered by most top junior colleges and being a Division I athlete.

“I put in as much work as I can to be where I want to be,” Vaughan said.

Vaughan has been on several visits, including Oral Roberts University, where his dad, Rick, played in the late 80s. Rick started at catcher for ORU and is where Vaughan learned a lot about the catcher position throughout his entire career.

“My dad has been around for my entire baseball career,” Vaughan said. “He’s always coached me and pushed me.”

Wherever Vaughan decides to continue his baseball career, he would like to major in sports management and be around the game of baseball as long as he can.
