The latest Brighton Cardinal golfer heading to the college level is Logan Watkins. Joined by his parents Shelia and Mike in the Brighton High School Library this morning, Watkins inked his national letter of intent to play golf at Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, Ark.
Watkins will play for Head Coach Luke Calcatera. Calcatera has been a part of the Arkansas Tech men’s golf program since he arrived as a freshman in 2003. As a player and a coach, Calcatera’s experience within the program has proven to be successful on and off the course.
In 2003, Calcatera chose to play at Tech under the former coach Dave Falconer. While at Tech, he was a part of Tech’s 2004 Gulf South Conference Championship team and also a member of its NCAA Division II South Regional Tournament team in 2004. Watkins has been a winner and leader for the Cardinals the past four years. He’s reached State three times and won District 13-3A and Region 7-3A individual championships.
