Last night before the starting lineups of the 1A state Championship basketball game, Logan Forbes of Lone Tree received a 1,000 dollar scholarship given out by the state.
Forbes is the one and only recipient of this award in class 1A, as there was one student-athlete who plays basketball from each class that received theirs prior to the starting lineups of their classes championship game.
Forbes told KCII that his week just kept getting better and better.
“[This is] very exciting, I mean we already made state which is like the biggest thing ever, it was sad that we lost, but hearing this news it made it a lot better for me at least,” Forbes.
Forbes was also nominated for first team all conference, with his 199 points, 140 rebounds and 54 steals that he had on the year.
Forbes plans to go to college at the University of Northern Iowa and major in business.
