Boys Athlete of the Week: Dawson County's Logan Burt
Tigers pitcher had 16 strikeouts in relief against Fannin County

While Logan Burt patrolled center field against Fannin County on March 31, he knew he was about to be called on to pitch Dawson County out of a jam. The Tigers were already trailing 4-0 in the first inning, and the Rebels still had the bases loaded with nobody out. All season, Burt has been an ace for Dawson County (10-7, 5-7 Region 7-AAA) on the mound, and with the playoffs still in clear sight early last week, Tigers coach Thad Burgess made the call to put the ball in Burt’s hand under less-than-ideal circumstances for a reliever.
