Scott Logdon Memorial Scholarship awarded to Hunter Hilbert

Hunter Hilbert was awarded the 2018 Scott Logdon Memorial Scholarship at the 'This Pitch' baseball award ceremony Aug. 3 at Journey Church. Former University of Kentucky baseball coach Keith Madison was the event’s guest speaker.

Hilbert was an anchor of the the Woodford County High School pitching staff. The 2018 graduate will continue his career at the University of Indiana Southeast in the Fall. When he first arrived at WCHS to play ball, he was a catcher but coach Paul Patterson noticed something about the way he threw the ball and after working at it a bit, the rest was history according to Hilbert. “What an amazing honor to be named in the same sentence as Scott Logdon,” said Hilbert. “I know what Scott stood for in life and besides loving baseball he was just a great guy and people loved him for that. I am flattered that the committee noticed the same characteristics in me and I hope I can continue to make them proud. I had great role models in my life and I would love to inspire others as I continue my career at the next level.” The Scott Logdon Memorial Scholarship became a reality shortly after a golf scramble held in his name in 2015. Scott passed away after a battle with leukemia just a few months prior and friends within the the Woodford County baseball family rallied together and held the scramble. “We knew we had to do something to honor Scott,” said Kentucky Rockers founder Barry Hartley. “It was that group of Marty Richey, Charlie Foster, Jason Thompson, Joey Cheek and Darin Wilson, those guys wanted to be part of it and were instrumental and making this happen.” The group formed an organization called “This Pitch” that will be the driving force to having the awards banquet for ballplayers. “We wanted to do something that brings the baseball community closer together,” said Hartley. “Bringing the Little league, Rockers and Bat Jackets along with the middle and high school teams together. Brody McCoun was also recognized as the winner of the first annual Mack Calvert Scholarship. He received the tropy earlier this year at the WCHS academic awards ceremony. Others awards:
