Senior Ryan Flores goes up for a pass against Logan County in September.

The 2018 football season saw both Logan County and Russellville end their campaigns in the second round of the state playoffs.

Logan County had a second consecutive outstanding regular season, going 9-1 with the lone loss coming late in the schedule against Madisonville-North Hopkins. Most of the games the Cougars played in were not even close. Only two -- the loss to Madisonville and a 10-6 win over Hopkinsville -- were closer than 20 points.

Junior quarterback Tyler Ezell led the offense with 1,669 passing yards and 12 touchdowns while also finishing second on the team in rushing with 492 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Junior running back Gary Hardy led the team with 1,483 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns. Maurice Gordon was the team's top receiver 495 yards and five touchdowns on 36 receptions.

The Cougars were eliminated by Franklin-Simpson, who plays the other team to beat Logan County this year -- Madisonville -- in the playoffs tonight.

Russellville didn't finish with as many regular season wins as usual this year, but still made it to the second round of the Class A playoffs before losing to Campbellsville last week.

The Panthers finished the regular season with a 4-6 record that included wins over Fort Campbell, Butler County, Fulton County and Fulton City. They also beat Fort Knox in the first round of the playoffs for their fifth win of the season.

Russellville was led on offense by senior quarterback Jacond Naylor who threw for 1,357 yards and 15 touchdowns. He also led the team with 687 rushing yards and had four touchdowns. Edward Barber had a team-high six rushing touchdowns to go along with his 405 rushing yards.

Campbellsville will play Crittenden County tonight in the Class A quarterfinals.
