Dublin Coffman High School senior Logan Holt wasn't sure if he would fulfill his goal of earning a Division I college golf scholarship after he didn't make varsity until his junior year, when he finished as the Shamrocks' No. 5 golfer.

But Holt made his dream come true by putting together a great year of golf in 2010 to gain the attention of several college coaches.

Holt had his first major breakthrough last summer by shooting a 142 to win the 16-18 age bracket of the Ohio Junior Championship.

During his senior season, Holt helped lead the Shamrocks to their second consecutive OCC-Central Division championship with a 28-0 league mark. He also helped Coffman win its third consecutive Division I sectional title and finish fourth in the state tournament for the second year in a row.

Holt signed a letter of intent on April 13 to play golf for Butler University in Indianapolis.

"Playing Division I college golf was definitely always a big goal of mine, but I didn't get a lot of attention until my senior year," Holt said. "I've always been a late bloomer, so winning the Ohio Junior was huge, because it was something that set me apart. I started getting offers a little bit after the state tournament ended and I had a great time with the recruitment process."

Holt narrowed his choices to Bentley, Butler, Ohio Wesleyan, Valparaiso and Youngstown State and visited each school in the winter before Butler and Youngstown State offered scholarships.

After taking an official visit to Butler on Dec. 17 and to Youngstown State in early January, Holt made a verbal commitment to Butler coach Bill Mattingly on March 1.

"Butler has a beautiful campus and I went to a basketball game there and I was impressed with the spirit of the students," Holt said.

"Butler has a great reputation for its academics and I like the coach and the team. It was a good fit for me."

Coffman coach David Woodmansee expects Holt to continue to improve his game over the next four years.

"Logan was a critical part of our success the past few years, but you can't play golf year-round in Ohio, so he has a lot of room for growth still," Woodmansee said.

"I think Logan will go on to be a valuable part of his team at Butler as well."

Holt, who has a 3.6 grade-point average, plans to earn a business degree. He also wants to make an impact at Butler on the golf course.

"I definitely want to earn a spot on the team next year," Holt said.

"I want to have a successful college career and to help my team win a Horizon League title and make the NCAA tournament during my time at Butler."
