Doug Davenport Service Award Winner February 11th, 2020
We are happy to announce a new award we will be giving out at Big Time Sports. The Doug Davenport Service Award. Doug Davenport was a fixture in Stark County hoops. He volunteered his services to a variety of schools like Jackson, Timken, McKinley, and GlenOak. He would devote countless hours helping young athletes hone their craft and improve not only their basketball skills but life skills as well. He loved basketball and helping young people succeed. Doug passed away in 2020 but his memory lives on and we look to honor that memory by honoring a student manager each week from schools across Stark County. At the end of the basketball season we will give out the award for the most deserving honoree.
Our 4th award winner is Logan Elliot, the student manager for the Jackson Polar Bears basketball team. Logan is a junior in high school and also part of the Jackson high school band. Logan has been through many hardships in life including 13 surgeries, 2 of which were on his spine. One of his greatest accomplishments is learning how to walk again after his last back surgery. Logan loves to cook and is a part of the culinary arts program at Jackson.
One of the many traits that endears Logan to his teammates and coaching staff is his positive attitude. Logan's motto is to "try and stay positive in every situation I'm in." His determination and incredible spirit in accomplishing his goals inspires the Polar Bears to do better each day.
Logan is a beloved member of the Jackson basketball team and says that being part of the team has changed his life and taught him so many life lessons. He is a well deserving recipient of this week's Doug Davenport Volunteer Service Award for all of his accomplishments and contribution to the Jackson basketball program.
