One of the most accomplished golfers in Brighton High School history made his college choice official last Wednesday.
In front of family, friends and coaches, Cardinal senior Logan Watkins signed a golf scholarship with Arkansas Tech.
The college, located in Russellville, Ark., has won two straight conference titles. That was something that attracted Watkins to the school.
“They're one of the best golf teams around here,” Watkins said. “I really liked the coaching staff and everybody there.”
Watkins won district and region titles during his senior season last fall and qualified for the state tournament for the third time.
He believes his experience at Brighton, which has had one of the best golf programs in West Tennessee over the last decade, helped him develop.
“We were always playing for district, region and state titles,” Watkins said. “I played against a lot of high-rated guys and I think that prepared me.”
