Mitz hearing from several

Pedigree for any athlete is a harbinger of good things to come and Redmond (Wa.) RB Logwone Mitz comes from excellent bloodlines. His mother was a track star at Oregon and his father, Alonzo, was a standout defensive tackle for the Florida Gators, before playing for the Seattle Seahawks for four seasons. Logwone recently took in junior day at Washington and spoke about recruiting and where he got his unique name.

"It was useful," Mitz told about the junior the Huskies had on February 26th. "It didn't do much from what I had known prior to that, but getting to know some of the coaches and my position coach, coach Trent (Miles), that added a little bit of knowledge to me."

Mitz (6-1, 218) played mainly on offense during his junior season for the Mustangs and rushed for 650 yards and 12 touchdowns on the season in spot duty.

"I have power and good agility," Mitz said about his running style that sets him apart. "My speed needs to get up and my quickness is alright, but it's my power and agility and my vision.

"I pretty much have no stress when I'm on the field. When it's overtime everybody is looking to me to do something and I know I can do it and I can get it done."

Mitz has turned out for track and is currently participating in the 4x100 relay, the long jump and the discus. He has a personal best of 11.38 in the 100 and a long of 125 in the discus.

While he doesn't claim any offers just yet, he's hearing from several schools and he has a current top four of Washington, Oregon, Cal and Washington State.

"I haven't heard a lot from Washington State yet, but I'm interested in checking them out," Mitz said.

Even though he has a very unique first name, his middle name was the nickname is father carried during his playing days.

"My mom let my dad name me," Mitz said. "He created the first name and gave me the middle name of ‘Warrior' because that's what people called him when he was on the field."

Mitz hasn't taken the ACT yet and is scheduled to take the SAT April 1st.
