A sweet-dreams finish for the Chieftains
caps 3-0 finish after nightmarish 0-7 start

LOGAN — A season that began as an absolute nightmare ended in sweet dreams for the Logan Chieftains.
Twenty-one days removed from a disastrous 0-7 start, the Purple & White brought one of the strangest, most-challenging seasons of high school football on record to an end by winning their final three games, capped off by Friday night’s 28-3 rout of visiting Teays Valley in Logan Chieftain Stadium.
“A weaker group of people would have given up a long time ago, but that’s just not who these young men are,” lauded Logan coach Mike Eddy, who concluded his second season at the helm of Chieftain Nation football. “They don’t give up and they don’t quit. They showed up and went to work every day and continued to get coached and continued to play hard.
“It was really (all about) finding something they believed in,” he added. Over the last three games “we started to play a little bit better on both sides of the ball and they started to believe in that that ‘yes, we can run the ball; yes, we can play some defense (and) we don’t have to give up 20-plus-points a week.’”
