the W column, but we faced a lot of top teams and were in a tough
PrepNewMexico.com: What are you doing to prepare for
Logan: Getting stronger, faster, and
developing better technique. I have been committed to working out on a regular
basis. I am working on my diet to become leaner, bigger and stronger. I am
working out with some speed and agility equipment as well, which is helping me
on the off season (when I am not playing legion ball) or working out in the gym
with my teammates. My parents do have to buy a lot of cereal though – my only
PrepNewMexico.com: What are your strengths as a
Logan: I like to hustle and love to play
the sport with my friends and teammates. We have developed a strong bond through
YAFL and now into high school. Hopefully we will have the chance again at the
college level. "Eagle Pride" has always been our motto – in YAFL it was
"Hammer-Time!" I have had some great coaches over the years and we had a lot of
fun. I think mostly I love to hit hard. My diet is also helping thanks to the
help of my new strength and conditioning coach. I think my sportsmanship is a
plus on the field as well. This will be my third year as a starter, so I have a
lot of experience in big games.

that cost me a couple of games. I am working on my small muscles groups with my

always looking for an opportunity to compete and get some
PrepNewMexico.com: What do you like most about the
game of football?
Logan: The hitting and adrenaline that
the game brings out of people. We develop a great bond among the players.
Playing sports in general keeps me going in and out of the classroom and
develops good character. Our coaches have been great. Win or lose, I think the
Eagles have great composure and sportsmanship. I always respect my coaches and
give my all.

back last year was the best we met.
PrepNewMexico.com: What are your aspirations as far

PrepNewMexico.com: What can we expect from your team
Logan: I think the Eagles will be a
bigger and faster team and our offense will be something they haven't see
before. We have a new coaching staff and strength and conditioning coach. We
should have a more balanced line and our new coaches are preparing us with an
all new style of football. The Eagles will be someone to be reckoned
