The Logan County Cougar football team are gearing up for their upcoming season. The Cougars had a tough season last year, going 0-10, but they have welcomed a new coach to hopefully turn their luck around. Steve Duncan has been working with the team this summer to prepare them for their season.
“It has been hot but I like the heat because it helps the team get in better shape. The team is working very hard and that’s key. They are really good young men and we have great senior leadership,” said head coach Steve Duncan. “We are trying to have a perfect practice. As a coach, I’ve never had one, but we are working on it.”
Duncan’s goal is to have the players perfectly prepared for their first game. The players has been conditioning and Duncan says if the players can line up in the right place and do their job they will be alright.
“I like this group of young men. They have good language and effort and they are working hard. The coaching staff is doing a fantastic job and they make my job a lot easier,” said Duncan. “We have a good number, about 65 guys, and I’m really excited about that.”
The Cougars have a scrimmage next Friday at Muhlenberg High School. They will scrimmage with both Muhlenberg and Apollo.
