2021 Speaker:

Jud Logan

Jud Logan is in his 17th season as the Head Track and Field Coach at Ashland University. He has guided the Eagle men to three consecutive NCAA Division II team national championships. Since 2005-06, Logan’s Eagles have finished with 42 top-10 national team placements indoors and outdoors, and 59 individual national champions indoors and outdoors. Before becoming the head coach, Logan served 11 years as an assistant coach at AU. He is regarded as one of the top throwing coaches in the country, but as his record at Ashland emphasizes, he knows how to build a well-rounded team. The Eagles annually have one of the largest groups in the country at nationals.

Logan is also recognized for his success as an athlete on the international level. A world class star in the hammer throw, he has been on four United States Olympic Teams – 1984, 1988, 1992 and 2000. He has competed in the Pan-American Games, the Goodwill Games and World Championships. He held the American record of 268 feet, 8 inches in the hammer throw. Throughout his career, which included five Olympic Trials and nine national trials, he has never finished outside of the top three finishers.
