Just barely into his senior year of high school, Logan McIntire has already decided where he will attend college.
The North Harrison High School athlete verbally committed to the University of Evansville, a Division I school. He will be a member of the Purple Aces men’s basketball team.
“I’ve always just really enjoyed playing the game,” said the shooting guard, who has played round ball since he was 3.
McIntire said he loves the team aspect of the game, as it takes everyone to win.
With one more high school season to make memories, McIntire already has some favorite contests.
“Honestly, I can say my most memorable games are obviously when I shoot well but more importantly when we win the big games,” he said. “Silver Creek, Corydon, Heritage Hills are some of the best games.”
At the end of last basketball season, McIntire was named an all-state honorable mention and was invited to the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association Top 100 workout.
“I am beyond blessed and excited to start my new basketball career at Evansville,” McIntire said. “I can’t wait to get to know the team and the coaches even better and be part of something special at the University of Evansville. I will be a shooting guard, point guard and possibly a small forward. They really believe in using all players to their complete value.”
The 6-foot-4 senior chose UE for several reasons.
“I can honestly say the coaching staff committed to me and watching and coming to all my AAU games and truly supported me,” McIntire said. “Once I visited the campus, I knew that that was a place that not only could I help the team, but the team could help me. It was really important for me to find somewhere where both of those happened. I can’t wait for the new chapter to start.”
He plans to major in civil engineering in college.
Hoops are not McIntire’s only sport. He has played soccer since he was in the sixth grade.
The senior already knows what he’s going to miss when he graduates from North Harrison in May.
“I will miss mostly my teammates, my friends, coaches and experiences I’ve had as a student-athlete and walking down the hallways with so many friends,” he said. “I had a great school.”
McIntire isn’t overlooking his senior campaign though.
“We are going after a sectional championship this next year, and I can’t wait to experience whatever this season brings with my teammates and coaches,” he said.
“I am truly blessed and thank God, my mom and dad (Erin and Jason McIntire), my complete family, my coaches and teammates for all the support on helping get me to the next chapter. Thank you all.”
