Additional Comments:

Shane was by far the most dedicated wrestler I have ever coached. His accomplishments speak for themselves, he is the only person to qualify to the State Tournament three times in school history. Add to that, he was a State Alternate as a freshman. He was a State Placer his sophomore and Senior seasons, and I truly believe he would have placed as a junior had he not suffered a serious hand injury. The injury was severe enough that several times at the District and State Tournaments the matches were stopped to reduce dislocations. Shane had surgery the Monday after the State Tournament.

Shane was also a tremendous leader for the wrestling program. He pushed himself and his teammates to their best.

Shane Gifford is the son of Patty and Craig Gifford. Graduated from Ohio University with a nursing degree. Shane is employed at UPS. Shane will be getting married in July to Miranda Hall

Phil Peloquin – Coach 
                                 
Coach Phil Peloquin has been a valuable asset to the Mid State League Track and Field, and Cross Country. He has been the head track coach for Logan Elm High School for 35 years, and started the Logan Elm Cross-Country program and has been the head coach for 32 years.
In Cross-Country, he has won 3 Mid State League titles, 2 District Titles, has taken 3 teams to the State Cross-Country meet and 7 individuals with 3 runners earning All State Honors, and has taken the first team in the history of Logan Elm in all sports to the State Tournament.
His greatest success however has come in Track and Field. He has qualified 68 Athletes to the State Track Meet and has had 13 All State athletes. He has won one Central District Title. Combined in the boys and girls, he has won 12 Mid State League Titles.

His most amazing Stat: From 1985-1993 he went undefeated in the Mid State League Championships winning 9 consecutive boys MSL titles. He has coached over 160 All League Athletes in Track alone. In 1997 Coach Peloquin was inducted into the Mid State League Hall of Fame.
What sets him aside however, is his personality and his love for the sport. He has had 26 members of his track teams over the years go on to become coaches. In fact, his entire coaching staff for the past four years is made up of former athletes of his.

After teaching and coaching at LEHS for 35 years, Phil is now an adjunct Professor in English at Ohio Christian University, teaching in the AIM program.  Married to Sherrie Bumgarner Peloquin for 35 years, have a daughter, Brienne, who is a PTA, and a son, Brandon, who works for the National Weather Service at Dulles Airport.  I have one grandchild, Blake age 7, and another due in February.  My plans are to keep teaching, play a lot with my grandsons, golf and read a lot (along with whatever my wife has for me to do).  I am truly very honored for my selection into the LEHS Hall of Fame, joining my buddies Michael Hartley and Eric Karshner, and so many other people helped make this honor possible.  Logan Elm is a great place to spend 35 years of my life!


Phil Evans – Award of Merit                                       

I have always been a Logan Elm Brave!  I graduated in1980 from LEHS where I participated in the football and basketball programs.  I value my experience from LEHS athletics and enjoyed every aspect of it.  The discipline, competition and success, along with the disappointments, made me a better person.  As an alumnus and father, I love to see kids grow, mature and take pride in themselves, their team and their school.  It is through this belief that has made me want to support the athletic programs at Logan Elm.

Larry Whaley - Award of Merit

2005 AWARD OF MERIT

The Award of Merit was established to recognize individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to benefit Logan Elm Athletics. Mr. Larry Whaley is the recipient for 2005. Larry has retired from DuPont with 29 years of service. He is currently working as Scheduler for Pickaway Area Rural Transit. Larry is a member of the Circleville First Church of the Nazarene and his activities include playing golf, working puzzles and enjoying time with his wife and daughter. Larry graduated from Westfall High School in 1966. His wife Connie graduated from Logan Elm in 1964 and his daughter Angela graduated from Logan Elm in 1992.

Larry served three years in the United States Army with a tour of duty in Vietnam, receiving the Army Commendation Medal. His association with Logan Elm High School activities began in the 1989-90 school year as Vice President of the Logan Elm Music Boosters. Larry served as Booster Vice President for three years. His first involvement with the Logan Elm Athletic Department began as public address announcer for the football games. He did that for two years. In the 1991-92 school year, He was asked if he would be interested in becoming the announcer during basketball games. Little did he know that after 14 years, he would still be the “Voice of the Braves” and hopefully he will continue to be for many more years! The past seven seasons, Larry has served as statistician for the football team. His services include all of the following: keeping stats during the game, informing the coach of first half stats during half time, totaling end of game stats and reporting them to the coach and the media, compiling and reporting accurate season totals. Larry basically takes care of all the number crunching for the football team. This is an invaluable service to the coaches. It is one thing they don’t have to worry about and it allows them to devote more of their time to the players!

The Logan Elm Athletic Department is very pleased to take this opportunity to honor Mr. Larry Whaley with this Award of Merit. Please take a moment after the ceremony to congratulate him for a job extremely WELL DONE!
