Coach's Corner: Matt Logan of Centennial HS

Centennial (Corona, Calif.) High School head football coach Matt Logan talks about Colorado verbal commit <A HREF=[PlayerNode:1199878]>Devin Head</A>.

Devin Head is a two-year starter at Centennial, manning the tackle spot during that span. This past season, he worked on the line that sprung running back Brandon Minor for an eye-opening 201.3 yards per game, and blocked for quarterback Chris Scott, who threw for 210 yards per game.

Most recently, Head participated in the prestigious California-Florida all-star game. Head verbally committed to Colorado in December.

Centennial head coach Matt Logan spoke with BSN about Head.

In general
Matt Logan:
He's been a great player for us. He played a lot as a sophomore. He was kind a sixth man for us, where he filled in for whoever was injured on the O-line. He played lots of positions and did a great job for us. Then he's been a two-year starter at left tackle for us.

He's a big, athletic and aggressive kid.

Q: What kind of offense do you run?
We're a spread offense – a shotgun, no-huddle team. We've averaged over 42 points a game over the past six years.

Q: For a spread offense team, you've got a running back, Brandon Minor, who's run for a lot of yards.
For a spread team, we're usually in the top three to five in the county for rushing every year, and we're usually in the top five throwing, as well.

Q: And Devin was a big part of that success?
Oh yeah. He's real athletic. We do a lot of screens and he's able to get downfield and block in space.

Q: How did the California-Florida all-star game go for him?
It went well. He sprained his ankle, but he came back and was able to play. He played left guard. I think they were pretty tackle heavy on the O-line. He had a good time. It was his first time to Florida, and he met a lot of good kids.

Q: Do you know where Colorado is projecting him to play?
I'm not sure. They might even be looking at him as a center because he's a real intelligent kid. His brother (Brian Head) is the starting center at Stanford. They're kind of in the same mold as far as being big, smart, athletic kids.

Q: Do you know what attracted him to Colorado?
He went up there and visited in the summer. He really liked the campus and the community. He enjoyed the coaches and got along with the players really well. It was a great fit for him.

Q: In the transition to college ball, what does he have to work on or how do expect that to go for him?
I think it will go well. You can never be big or fast enough; those are always things that you can improve on, but he'll do well.
