THE PLAINS — Yes, the Logan Chieftains and Athens Bulldogs have a very historic football rivalry… but what the two teams did in their first meeting in eight years Friday night was off the charts when it comes to historical numbers.
The two teams combined for huge numbers — 110 points, 1,122 total yards, 53 first downs and 16 different touchdowns in Scott Riggs & Family Stadium, numbers that have never been approached since the two schools first met in 1914 — but, as far as the Chiefs are concerned, a simple number 1 will do just fine, thank you.
The Chiefs are 1-0 after winning a season opener for the first time since 2009 after an absolutely wild 61-49 victory at Athens High School.
