Logan Focused on State Title, UNC

GREENSBORO, N.C. --- Despite rumblings that he might be looking around, North Carolina pledge T.J. Logan says the only college coaches he communicates with are those from UNC.

"I talk to Coach ‘Kap' [Chris Kapilovic] every Tuesday," Logan said. "He said they are on the rise. I just can't wait to get there."

Furthermore, the only school Logan has visited since he verbally committed in July is UNC. The 5-foot-10, 170-pound athlete from Northern Guilford most recently visited Chapel Hill for the Tar Heels' victory over Virginia Tech.

"It's a great football atmosphere," Logan said. "I like how they spread the ball out. They run a lot of similar plays that we run, so it would be easier to transition over to that."

With one game still remaining in his senior season, he has rushed for 2,645 yards and 39 touchdowns on 265 carries (9.98-yard average), caught 25 passes for 344 yards and six scores, and completed all eight of his attempted passes for another 144 yards.

Logan's feats are even more impressive when you consider the fact that he has played only the first half in most of Northern's game and during that half he rarely leaves the field. In addition to running back, he starts at free safety and is on every special teams unit except kickoffs.

"I get tired a little bit," Logan said. "But I know I have to help my team and just play, because we have to get the win. Most of the time Coach [Johnny] Roscoe, he knows my limits. So he'll pull me out to get some water and give me a break."

Northern is now 14-0 and will play Charlotte (N.C.) Catholic on Saturday night at Wake Forest in hopes to win its third consecutive state championship and extend its winning streak to 29 games.

"I just know we'l; play hard and the defense is going to win it – it's always been like that," Logan said. "We've always had a good defense."
