ARDMORE, Okla. ― To meet this week’s A+ Athlete, Mark Van Paasschen takes us to Plainview High School in Ardmore to introduce you to a multi-talented high school star.

This week's A+ Athlete is a touchdown machine for the Indians on the football field and also a member of the Plainview High School choir.

Logan carries a 3.5 GPA in school, and has won the outstanding musicianship award in each of the last three years.

Athletically, the senior has won numerous awards for the Plainview football team, as well as for the basketball and track teams, and he says the key to his success is keeping his mind aligned.

Of course being both an accomplished singer as well as a football standout brings about some good-natured jeers from his teammates. Logan has an answer for that.

Congratulations to Logan Russell on being named this week's A+ Athlete.

We'll introduce you to another A+ Athlete every Friday here on First News AM. School officials, coaches, teachers, and counselors are encouraged to send in your nominees.

A+ Athletes…
--must be a senior..
--must be nominated through the student’s school district- not a parent.
