Honda Athlete of the Week: Matt Cogar

Honda Athlete of the Week

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Webster County native, and professional lumberjack sports athlete, Matt Cogar is our Honda Athlete of the Week.

Cogar is a third generation competitive lumberjack athlete. He’s been dubbed the United State’s best lumberjack sports athlete and is one of the best in the world.

And he has the chance this weekend to make it official that he is the best. 

“Everything’s gotta work. The wood’s gotta be good with the axe. And the wood combination have to match. The axe has got to cut the wood and the wood has to give the axe back to you. So there’s a lot that goes into it for sure. As much as you want it to be a man-versus-man kind of deal, it’s usually man versus the wood,” Cogar said. 

He is competing in Sweden at the Stihl Timbersports Champions Series.
