Logan Hursey of Newcomerstown High School was awarded the "Courage Award" in the Best of the Preps honors given by The Times-Reporter of Dover-New Philadelphia, part of the same GateHouse Ohio Media group that includes The Newcomerstown News.

Hursey recently completed his freshman year and overcame great odds when he lost both parents during the same year but still made it to the Ohio state wrestling tournament.

The Dover-Phila Credit Union Courage Award is presented to an athlete that demonstrated the true definition of courage throughout this past sports season.

In making the presentation, it was said, "One definition of courage is ‘The mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear or difficulty.’ This athlete certainly demonstrated that definition as he went on to accomplish great things in the sporting realm."
