What Is up and Coming for the Cougars Football Team?
By Austin West
The football team won their last game of the 2016 season. That was our first win in four seasons! Yes, that means that the seniors that were on the team for all four years had just gotten their first win. The final score of the game was 56-27. That was a big step for the football team in the right direction.
When asked how the team feels about going into next season, Tyler Ezell (freshman), this year’s quarterback, responded, “We don’t have to pack around the monkey on our back anymore, so we are pretty confident. We can’t let that stop us from putting in the hard work we need to put in for next year though.” That’s coming from a freshman who is really dedicated to do whatever it takes to make the team successful.
Coming from a senior, this team has a lot of talent and can do many big things in the future. They are losing eleven seniors, so the underclassmen are going to have to keep working hard and fill in those spots. There are a group of juniors that are going to have to lead the team into next season as seniors have. It’s not going to be an easy task, but it is doable.
There are big things coming for the football here program at Logan County. Who knows: they might make a movie about us. You never know.
