Remson named ninth recipient of Army ROTC Athletic Achievement Award

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Auburn University at Montgomery junior first baseman Logan Remson was named the most recent recipient of the Army ROTC Athletic Achievement Award for the 2010-11 academic year, LTC Bryon Bonnell and the AUM athletic department announced Monday.

Criteria for the Army ROTC Athletic Achievement Award includes being certified for eligibility and involved in participation of a varsity sport; performance on the field or court during the previous two weeks; contributions to the team's success through their individual leadership skills, their commitment to teamwork, their extra effort during practice and their demonstration of sportsmanship; and performance off the field of play, including academic success, character and exemplary community outreach.

During the two week span for which he was nominated, Remson batted an even .500, collecting 15 hits in 30 at-bats. He drove in six runs and score three more, while committing just one error in 68 chances. In the Senators series sweep of William Carey, he finished 9-for-13 at the plate.

For the season, Remson has collected 49 hits, including five doubles and one homerun, while adding 20 RBIs.

"Logan is a quiet leader, who is always the first one to practice and the last one to leave," said Associate Head Coach Marty Lovrich. "He is always calm and leads by example. Logan is a walk-on athlete, who works hard on and off the field."

Along with his contributions on the field, Remson also excels in the classroom and community. He was recently recognized for making the Provost's Honor Roll, a distinction awarded to student-athletes who earned a 3.5 to 4.0 GPA for the Fall 2010 term.

During the past year, Remson and the Senators have volunteered at the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tournament at Robert Trent Jones golf course in Prattville. For three days, they helped with spotting the ball, scoring the tournament and working with the starter for each tee off. Remson also volunteered at the annual Buckmasters Classic.

Remson and the Senators will return to action on Tuesday, April 12, when they travel to Ozark, Ala., to take on Thomas University at 3 p.m.
