Lo­gan Gal­lant

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Who – A 21-year-old Corn­wall res­i­dent, pre­par­ing for the Canada Games soft­ball com­pe­ti­tion. He also plays base­ball.

Po­si­tion – Short­stop and pitcher.

Did you know? – Gal­lant and soft­ball team­mate Stephen O’Shea went to the 2013 Canada Games with the men’s base­ball team. Gal­lant said the Games is a once-in-a-life­time ex­pe­ri­ence, but get­ting to go a sec­ond time is some­thing he never ex­pected.

More than wins – While any ath­lete wants to win, Gal­lant said

sports have pro­vided him with many life skills that trans­late into his ed­u­ca­tion at Hol­land Col­lege, UPEI or his sum­mer job. They in­clude things like ded­i­ca­tion, work ethic and time man­age­ment.

Soft­ball coach Mark Quinn:

“Lo­gan is also a stu­dent of the game. He’s the kind of guy that watches what’s go­ing on . . . he’s al­ways cri­tiquing his abil­ity of what he’s do­ing and mak­ing those mi­nor ad­just­ments.”

Base­ball coach Dave MacIsaac: “His at­tributes are al­ways wel­come on any ball team.”
