Player Spotlight: Logan Lippert

Logan Lippert is one of the best pure athletes in all of New Mexico. He was a 1st team all district LB and all district, all metro and all state as a baseball player during his junior season. He's ready for a big senior season.

What is it with great players from New Mexico missing time as juniors because of injuries?  Over the last couple of weeks we have brought you guys like Shon Mitchell and C.J. Carlisle who both missed time to injuries.  With that being said they still should be two of the better players at their respective positions in 2007.  Today we bring you yet another stud in Eldorado athlete Logan Lippert.  Lippert also missed time his junior season because of a knee sprain, however he is fully healed and ready for a big senior season. 

 

PrepNewMexico.com:  What is your height, weight, 40 times, bench and squat?

Logan: Height, weight: 6'0", 188 lbs. 40 times: 4.75, Bench: 290 lbs., Squat: 400 lbs.

 

PrepNewMexico.com: What honors did you receive this past season?

Logan: 1st team all district Linebacker, Honorable mention All Metro Linebacker. For me, it's hard to decide between baseball and football but football has always been #1 for me. I was also 1st team all district/metro/state outfielder for the Eagle baseball team.

 

PrepNewMexico.com:  What were your stats from last season?

Logan: (7 games) 8-TDs, 610 yards on 104 carries, 42 tackles, 2 interceptions.  A few forced fumbles. We don't keep good defensive numbers. I guess we leave that up to the win/loss column.  

 

PrepNewMexico.com:  What was your best memory from this past season?

Logan: Beating the La Cueva Bears in regular season was the most memorable of course. We should be able to do it again this year. I think we lost a few games last year that should have been in the W column, but we faced a lot of top teams and were in a tough district.

 

PrepNewMexico.com:  What are you doing to prepare for next season?

Logan: Getting stronger, faster, and developing better technique. I have been committed to working out on a regular basis. I am working on my diet to become leaner, bigger and stronger. I am working out with some speed and agility equipment as well, which is helping me on the off season (when I am not playing legion ball) or working out in the gym with my teammates. My parents do have to buy a lot of cereal though – my only weakness.

 

PrepNewMexico.com:  What are your strengths as a football player?

Logan: I like to hustle and love to play the sport with my friends and teammates. We have developed a strong bond through YAFL and now into high school. Hopefully we will have the chance again at the college level. "Eagle Pride" has always been our motto – in YAFL it was "Hammer-Time!" I have had some great coaches over the years and we had a lot of fun. I think mostly I love to hit hard. My diet is also helping thanks to the help of my new strength and conditioning coach. I think my sportsmanship is a plus on the field as well. This will be my third year as a starter, so I have a lot of experience in big games.

 

PrepNewMexico.com:  What are your weaknesses as a football player?

Logan: I had a knee sprain last year that cost me a couple of games. I am working on my small muscles groups with my strength and conditioning coach to make sure that doesn't happen again. Lastly of course working on my speed and agility. I have been to a couple combines and always looking for an opportunity to compete and get some exposure.

 

PrepNewMexico.com:  What do you like most about the game of football?

Logan: The hitting and adrenaline that the game brings out of people. We develop a great bond among the players. Playing sports in general keeps me going in and out of the classroom and develops good character. Our coaches have been great. Win or lose, I think the Eagles have great composure and sportsmanship. I always respect my coaches and give my all. 

 

PrepNewMexico.com:  Who is the best player you have ever played against?

Logan: Brian Mead, the Clovis running back last year was the best we met.

 

PrepNewMexico.com:  What are your aspirations as far as playing football in college?

Logan: I would like to play at a D-1 or D-2 college as would anyone else, I am sure. I think my parents would be very proud of anything I do since they know I will always give 110%.

 

PrepNewMexico.com:  Name some teammate's people need to look out for next season?

Brandon Ghiassi , Brad Elliot, Tyler Barela, Dylan White, John Posen, Austin Cantwell, Jami Abdullah, Lucas Hines, Tim Lutz

 

PrepNewMexico.com:  What can we expect from your team next year?

Logan: I think the Eagles will be a bigger and faster team and our offense will be something they haven't see before. We have a new coaching staff and strength and conditioning coach. We should have a more balanced line and our new coaches are preparing us with an all new style of football. The Eagles will be someone to be reckoned with.

 

Logan should have a great senior season.  Lippert is also a great athlete on the baseball field, earning all district, all metro and all state honors as a junior.  Logan is also an outstanding student carrying a 3.75 G.P.A; look for film of Lippert in a few weeks.
