Dan Logan was a four year performer in basketball, football and tennis at HHS between 1966 and 1970. In basketball he was the starting point guard on the 1970 team that finished runner-up in the district. Dan was a two-way performer in football, playing quarterback, receiver and running back on offense and safety on defense. As a junior he intercepted three passes in a game against Lexington and as a senior scored all the points in a 16-7 win over Parry Mclure, running for a touchdown, catching a pass for another and running for two two-point conversions.
It was in tennis, though, that Dan left an indelible mark at HHS.

As an individual, Dan won the 1st Group AA state singles championship in 1970 and also was runner-up in doubles that year. In his four years of tennis he was undefeated against Group AA competition.
After graduation from HHS, Dan attended Morris Harvey College, where he was the #1 singles player and a 2 time runner-up for Conference Player of the Year honors. Dan coached tennis for four years at Thomas Jefferson High School in Richmond. One of his players, Rodney Harmon, was the tennis coach for the U.S. Olympic team in 2008. Dan returned to Harrisonburg and started the boys’ and girls’ tennis programs at Eastern Mennonite High School, where he coached for 5 years. Dan is an 8 time singles champion of the annual Daily News-Record Tennis Tournament.
