Logan faces old NCC foe Frankfort to open sectional

Cass travels to No. 7 Tipton; Pioneer hosts Seeger.

Logansport’s football team is facing one of the original members of the North Central Conference tonight in Frankfort.

The Berries (3-6) are hosting the Hot Dogs (4-5) at 7 o’clock at Berry Stadium in a first-round game of Class 4A, Sectional 20.

It’s possibly the first meeting between the two schools in football since Frankfort left the NCC in 1967.Frankfort, with an enrollment of 859, competes in Class 3A in most class sports but moved up to Class 4A in football last year.

The teams have one common opponent this year in Twin Lakes. The Berries lost to the Indians 17-7 in Week 1 while the Hot Dogs lost to the Indians 24-21 in three overtimes in Week 2.

“They’re a pretty solid football team despite their record,” Logan coach Brad Urban said. “Their quarterback [Isaac Rudd] may be the best athlete we’ve seen all year at the position. He’s a big, strong runner who can throw the ball. It’s a real concern for our defense to contain him. Their numbers are down but they are a stout, strong football team. They have five or six players that play both ways so we’ll try to use that to our advantage. It’ll be a cold night and we have to be physical and try to wear them out. It’ll be important from everything I’ve seen from them.”

The Berries are healthier than they’ve been in about a month, Urban said. He said the only players that might start both ways in the game are Marcus Record and Austin Gaby. Deon Coburn will be back at offensive tackle for the first time since the Muncie Central game four weeks ago. Leading rusher Jacob Shelton (582 yards, 10 touchdowns) could also return for the first time in four games from a leg injury.
