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?
Logan:
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.
Logan:
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?
Logan:
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?
Logan:
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?
Logan:
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?
Logan:
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?
Logan:
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.
