30 Under 30: Logan Schuss, 22
Sometimes making the step up from high school to university can be a steep challenge.
Not so for Ladner's Logan Schuss, a standout lacrosse player who has made a big impact at The Ohio State University team during the past two seasons with the Buckeyes.
Schuss, 22, who came up through the ranks with the Delta Islanders organization, has set a series of notable achievements in his time in Ohio.
In 2010, his freshman year, he scored a team high 31 goals and 25 assists in 15 games—a total which earned him a rookie of the year award.
He followed that up in 2011 with 52 points (32 goals, 20 assists) to again lead all players in scoring.
His two-season totals put him 24th on all-time Buckeye scoring.
"Logan Schuss is a very special young man," said Ohio's head coach Nick Myers. "He is a very strong student and a leader in the community here at Ohio State. On the lacrosse field he is one of the most potent offensive players in the game right now."
Myers added that Schuss has, "all the intangibles that you want in a player and works extremely hard at this game. I feel strongly that Logan is still getting better and has his best lacrosse in front of him."
And that is high praise indeed as Schuss has accumulated plenty of other accolades during his time with the Buckeyes.
In 2011 he was an Ohio State Scholar-Athlete, named to the Academic All-Big Ten and to the Academic All-ECAC teams, and was voted Team Offensive MVP by his teammates.
