The role of a midfielder in soccer is fluid - sometimes pressing forward on offense, sometimes back-pedaling on defense, but always (always!) working.

The similarities between playing midfielder in soccer and being a busy corporate attorney are not lost on Logan Threadgill, a litigation associate at Chattanooga's Chambliss, Bahner, Stophel, P.C. law firm.

For the first couple of decades of his life, the 33-year-old Knoxville native was a soccer prodigy. Threadgill played Division I soccer at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina, where he was a four-year letterman. Between his junior and senior years in college, Threadgill was a midfielder on one of the first Chattanooga Football Club (CFC) teams to play for a national championship.

"I spent the lion's share of my youth, up through college, training and playing," Threadgill says.
