Turner, HSU find match made in Texas

(Continued)

WEATHERFORD —

“That was really exciting, and a lot of fun, to be able to set a new school record,” Logan said. “That was really one of the overriding reasons I came to HSU.

“In the offense we run, as a quarterback, you expect to get the chance to put up lots of yards and scores. It is just a lot of fun to work in this system and I was really fortunate to get the opportunity.”

“Journeyman” is a term usually reserved for pro quarterbacks who have been moving around the league, but the circuitous route Logan has taken en route to HSU could certainly qualify. Starting as a senior at Springtown after the move with his family from Sulphur Springs, the graduate was recruited as a dual threat by SMU, and spent time there until the coaching staff underwent a wholesale change. Transferring to Southeastern Oklahoma spawned two years at the starting quarterback position. The rest, you know.

At 3-0 in ASC play coming into the weekend, the Cowboys anticipated the biggest game of the year with nationally-ranked Mary Hardin-Baylor. Saturday’s game offered all the excitement expected, with HSU falling short late in the game.

After tossing four touchdowns to take the lead in the fourth period, the rest of the game turned back to the Crusaders favor, with a final score of 45-32. Logan threw for 470 yards, another high-output performance.

HSU, with Logan at the helm, figures to add more wins through the rest of the year, until coaching comes calling.
