Logan opens NCC play

No. 7 Cass travels to N’western; No. 6 Pioneer visits SN

Logansport’s football team has dealt in extremes to start the season.

The Berries were handed a 22-point loss at the hands of Twin Lakes to start the season before turning around and defeating Peru by 21 points last week.

First-year Logan coach Brad Urban said his squad will need to bring a similar type off effort that it had against Peru if it wants to have a chance in tonight’s North Central Conference opener against Huntington North at Berry Stadium.

“Probably from a talent standpoint they’re the best team we’ve played to date on both sides of the ball,” Urban said. “They’ve got talent. They’re adjusting to a new system and a new coach as well as we are. If we improve our play we have a good shot at beating them. We want to get the game into the fourth quarter and have a chance to win.”

Huntington North has opened 0-2 with lopsided losses on the road against a pair of Class 5A schools, Homestead (53-12) and Fort Wayne North (51-25).

“Huntington North played two really strong opponents and gave up a lot of points. They’ve played against two very strong offensive teams that have scored some points on them,” Urban said.

HN quarterback Drew Schnitz has passed for 458 yards with six touchdowns and four interceptions in the first two games. He is also the leading rusher with 56 yards on the ground. Caleb Richison had 10 catches for 204 yards and two TDs, and Paul Ehler has 11 catches for 167 yards and two TDs.

“In the passing game they have quality wide receivers and a quarterback that throws the ball well. They’re a whole different type of football team that we’ve faced,” Urban said. “They’re going through some growing pains with a new coach as well. Most people would give the nod to them with their size and how many players they have. We’re looking forward to it.
