Preview: Todd Adler has built Logan County’s football program into one of the most successful in Class 4A over the past few years, and the Cougars are expected to put together another strong season in 2020. Although Adler — who’s entering his fifth season at the helm — and Logan County graduated standout quarterback Tyler Ezell, running back Gary Hardy and some other important players, they return versatile wide receiver Anthony “Rooster” Woodard, fellow wideout Braxton Baptiste — who could actually be the Cougars’ starting QB — and another receiver in Jaden Sells, in addition to many other experienced guys. Logan County opens with longtime rival Russellville right off the bat and has scheduled meetings with teams such as Hopkinsville, Franklin-Simpson and South Warren, which makes for a challenging slate.

Coach’s Thoughts:

  • “It’s really exciting to be able to play sports again,” Logan County coach Todd Adler said. “I think we learned really quick how we take things for granted. I think this season will be special for everyone because we are playing sports again. They were taken from us in the spring before we even knew what happened. I believe every coach and player around the state is giving it everything they have because reality is it can be taken from us just like that.”
  • “Our schedule is tough,” Adler said. “With moving the schedule back a couple of weeks and picking up a few games late, we have a lot of games on our schedule that could be very interesting matchups. We come out of the gate with a senior-heavy Russellville team.”
