1,792: All-purpose (combined rushing, receiving, kickoff/punt returns) yards for senior Isaac Schmeltzer.
1,760: Passing yards by Chieftain opponents. While it’s an all-time record, it’s also quite indicative of how the passing game has evolved in high school football.
1,040: Rushing yards by Schmeltzer, who became the 28th 1,000-yard rusher in school history.
672: Total offensive yards (424 passing, 248 rushing) by Zanesville, an all-time record against the Chiefs.
670: Total kickoff return yards for Schmeltzer.
589: Total offense yards against Portsmouth, second-most all-time.
518: Rushing yards by Lancaster, an all-time record against the Chiefs.
505: Rushing yards for Bryce McBride, who became just the seventh sophomore in school history to rush for more than 500 yards in a single season.
469: Passing yards by Newark, an all-time record against the Chiefs.
275: Rushing yards by Schmeltzer against Warren, a new Logan Chieftain Stadium record.
272.84: Pass efficiency rating for quarterback Nick Kost against Jackson, sixth-best all-time.
223: Yards rushing for both Schmeltzer and McBride, making them the first tandem of Chieftain runners to rush for 200 yards or more in the same game.
188: Career points for Schmeltzer, ninth-best all-time.
179: Points scored in the second half of the season (compared to 73 the first half) by the Chiefs.
125: Passes completed by opponents in 2013. It’s also an all-time record, but also another statistic indicative of how the passing game has evolved.
123, 110 and 105: Rushing yards against Warren, Jackson and Newark, respectively, by Kost, who became only the second Logan QB to run for triple figures in a game since 1968.
120: Team-leading points (20 touchdowns) scored by Schmeltzer, the most since Justin Frye scored 132 points in both 2006 and 2007.
101: Yards Evan DeLong returned an interception for a touchdown against Loudonville, the longest scoring play in LHS history.
99: Yards McBride ran for a TD against Portsmouth, tying the all-time record for the longest running play in school history. It’s a record that can be tied but never broken.
95: Yards Schmeltzer returned a kickoff for a touchdown against Teays Valley, tying the all-time record for longest KO return. It was one of three kickoffs the Chiefs returned to paydirt to tie a school record.
89: Team-leading total tackles (16 solo, 73 assists) for senior co-captain Austin Scarberry. Although just 5-foot-7 and 185 pounds — almost all of it heart — Scarberry was the embodiment of this team.
85.7: Percentage of successful extra-point kicks (30 of 35) by senior Charles Bowlby, who played football for the first time this season after having played soccer for the Chieftains. Bowlby converted his last 13-straight placements and was 22-of-24 (91.7 percent) in Southeastern Ohio Athletic League games.
85: Yards DeLong returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown against Portsmouth, setting the tone for a resounding 54-27 Chieftain victory.
80: Completion percentage for Kost against Jackson, tied for fifth-best all-time.
78: Passes thrown without an interception by Kost.
74: Offensive plays run by Jackson, a game the Chiefs still managed to win despite running only 45 plays of their own (read on for much more on this particular game).
60: Percentage rate the Chiefs converted third-down plays in league play. Logan was an outstanding 27-for-45 on third down against conference foes, including 8-of-10 against Warren and 7-of-11 against Jackson.
44: Newark yard line where defensive lineman Gabe Smith tackled Wildcats quarterback Grant Russell on the game’s final play to preserve a 32-27 Logan win.
44: Field goal yardage by Teays Valley’s Thad Smith, a new Logan Chieftain Stadium record.
42: Points scored by Schmeltzer against Warren, a new school record.
41.5: Average points scored per SEOAL game.
36: Seconds it took the Chiefs to drive 50 yards for the winning touchdown in the final minute of their 28-21 win over Jackson. In retrospect, this week-seven clash proved to be the SEOAL championship game, as the Ironmen finished 3-1 to the Chiefs’ 4-0.
34: Minutes the Chiefs went without a first down to end their 31-7 loss to Loudonville.
31: Career touchdowns for Schmeltzer, ninth-most in school history.
30: Team-leading solo tackles for DeLong, who had to be the team’s most-improved player from week one to week 10.
28: Season-high single-game total tackles (seven solo) by junior Dean Jordan against Teays Valley.
27.9: Yards per carry by McBride (223 yards on eight attempts) against Portsmouth.
26: SEOAL football championships for Logan, the most all-time.
26: First downs by Zanesville, an all-time record against the Chiefs. Five Logan foes had at least 20 first downs.
25: Pass completions by Newark, an all-time record against the Chiefs.
25: Minutes the start of the Logan-Newark game was delayed because someone accidentally turned off the Logan Chieftain Stadium lights.
20.3: Yards per carry by Schmeltzer (223 yards on 11 attempts) against Portsmouth.
20/10: Ratio of opponents’ turnovers to those committed by the Chiefs. Read on for more on this subject.
20: Seniors, whose leadership, attitude, willingness to adjust and ability to persevere was the main reason behind Logan’s success.
19: Points the Chiefs scored in the first eight minutes against Newark.
18: Total penalties (for 221 yards) called by a less-than-stellar officiating crew in the Teays Valley game. Several ticky-tack 5-yard flags and lots of holding calls totally bogged down the Chiefs’ home opener.
16: First-half first downs for Teays Valley compared to zero for Logan. The Chiefs also only ran 10 offensive plays in the first half.
14: Team-leading pass receptions (for 199 yards, three for touchdowns) by sophomore Isiah Smith. He and junior Nathan Cocks (12 receptions, 132 yards) proved to be very capable and dependable receivers.
14: Pass receptions (for 269 yards) by Newark’s Darius Shackleford.
12.9: McBride’s season yards-per-carry average, which would have shattered John Cosgrove’s 1994 school record of 9.58 YPC except that McBride only carried the ball 39 times, far below the minimum 100 times.
11: Number of games in the most-recent version of the season-opening Logan-Lancaster series that will come to an end next season. The Aug. 29, 2014, game in Logan Chieftain Stadium will be the 11th and last in the current series that, except for back-to-back Logan wins in 2008 and 2009, has been all Golden Gales and has oftentimes resulted in several Chieftain injuries. Athens replaces the Gales as the Chiefs’ season-opening foe in 2015.
10: Interceptions by the Logan defense; by comparison, the Chiefs had just 11 pickoffs the last two seasons combined and only 14 the previous three seasons.
10: Total Logan turnovers (all of them lost fumbles) all season, an average of just one miscue per game. Seven came in three games (Nelsonville-York, Portsmouth and Lancaster), and three were on fourth-down plays on which the Chiefs would have turned the ball over on downs anyway.
9: Number of kickoff returns by DeLong for a team-high 27.2 average, including one touchdown.
8/78: Kost’s touchdown pass-to-attempts ratio, meaning 10.3 percent of his pass attempts went for touchdowns. By comparison, Patrick Angle’s 2009 (26/302) and 2008 (25/286) were 8.6 and 8.7 percent, respectively… although, obviously, the Chiefs threw the ball much, much more and were a different type of football team.
7.03: Yards per carry for Schmeltzer, sixth-best in school history.
7: School-record touchdowns by Schmeltzer (six rushing, one receiving, for a school-record 42 points) against Warren. And it would have been eight if he hadn’t had another called back due a penalty.
7: Point after touchdown kicks by Bowlby against Warren, tied for third-most in school history and just the 11th time in school history a kicker converted seven PATs.
6: Victories in 2013, equaling the number of wins the previous three seasons combined.
6: Home games for the Chiefs in 2013. Next season, they’ll only play four foes (Lancaster, Nelsonville-York, Zanesville and Gallipolis) in Logan Chieftain Stadium.
5.5 and 5: Sacks for seniors Gabe Smith and Reggie Wesselhoeft, respectively. Smith led the team in sacks after not having played football since his freshman season while Wesselhoeft was next-to-impossible for opponents to block when he was on.
5: Number of penalty yards the Chiefs made the officials assess to Jackson on a late-game kickoff. After pulling even with the Chiefs with a late touchdown (on a fourth-down pass to boot) and 2-point conversion, the Ironmen intentionally booted the kickoff out of bounds. However, instead of taking the ball at their own 35-yard line, the Chiefs instead accepted a 5-yard penalty and made Jackson re-kick from its own 35. Schmeltzer returned it 28 yards to midfield, almost breaking it for a touchdown, to set up the Chiefs’ winning TD drive.
5: Touchdowns by Schmeltzer against Portsmouth.
4 (and 0): Logan’s record against SEOAL competition.
4: Games in which the Chiefs did not commit a single turnover.
4: Team-leading tackles for loss by McBride, Gabe Smith and Wesselhoeft.
4: Total pass receptions by 6-foot-8 junior tight end Kevin Fisher.
3: Touchdown pass receptions, out of those four total, by Fisher. On all three, Kost played basketball point guard to Fisher’s pivotman, putting the ball up where the big man could go up and get it against smaller defenders.
3: Team-leading interceptions by juniors Casey Phillips and Brandon Arnett.
3: Number of times two different Logan players rushed for 100 or more yards (against Newark, Portsmouth and Warren) in a single game.
3: Different teams (Teays Valley, Newark and Loudonville), on consecutive weeks, whom the Chiefs played at home for the first time ever. For that matter, Teays Valley and Loudonville were first-time Logan opponents, period.
3: Fumbles lost by Lancaster in the game’s first nine minutes — and the Gales still won 57-7, the most lopsided result in the all-time history of the series.
3: Kickoff returns for touchdowns by the Chiefs, tying an all-time team record.
2: Kickoff returns for touchdowns by Schmeltzer, tying an all-time individual record.
1: Points per offensive play for Zanesville, which scored 58 points on 58 plays.
0: The Chiefs didn’t throw a single interception all season, an all-time first in more than 100 years of Logan football… quite possibly the most impressive number of all.
-6: Total yards of offense against Loudonville.
-16: Rushing yards for Newark, fourth-fewest allowed in school history.
-30: Rushing yards against Loudonville, Logan’s second-least rushing yards all-time.
