The Academy of Holy Angels baseball team has two student athletes who have recently received full Division 1 college baseball scholarships. Congratulations to Joe Longo and Logan Olson!
Joe Longo - AHA senior - University of Michigan:
Joe began playing with AHA’s Summer Experience Camps when he was in middle school. According to head coach Mike Rothstein, “Even then, Joe was one of the better players at the summer camps, despite being much younger than most of the kids.”
Joe has started on the baseball team since his freshman year. “He continues to get better and stronger each year. I'm excited for him and his opportunity to play in the Big Ten and get a first class education. Michigan is a fast rising baseball program that played in the National Championship game last year,” commented Coach Rothstein.
Logan Olson - AHA junior - University of Oregon:
Logan recently participated at the Prep Baseball Report Pro Day where he had the opportunity to play in front of 30 Major League Baseball scouts; Logan was the only junior invited to this Midwest event.
On the recent accolades, Coach Rothstein said, “Logan had an amazing summer and performed well in front of a lot of high D-I coaches and pro scouts. I am absolutely thrilled about his opportunity to play at Oregon. He is just scratching the surface with his abilities on the mound. He just turned 16 this past summer and still has 2 years of high school left to get stronger and develop. “
It has been an exciting few months for the Stars baseball program with both Joe and Logan being recruited nationally by Division 1 collegiate programs. "It was much welcomed good news given the disappointment of having the spring season cancelled due to COVID-19," said Rothstein.
While the 2021 AHA baseball season is still uncertain right now, the Minnesota State High School League has given permission for teams to practice this fall, which is out of the ordinary. The Stars will take advantage of this opportunity and will practice 12 times during the month of October. GO STARS!
