Maryland return man Logan as X-factor against West Virginia
In the spring, Tony Logan was a little confused about his role on Maryland’s football team. So Coach Ralph Friedgen told him exactly what he expected in the fall: a dangerous punt returner and a backup wide receiver.
“I said, ‘We’ve got to get you to make somebody miss' ” as a punt returner, Friedgen said. “But we also have to do a better job of holding guys up. I made it a point with the team that we have a guy back here who has a knack for returning punts, but we have to give him a chance. What would happen a lot of times was that he would catch the ball and there were three guys around him. Now, he’s getting more and more confidence. Not only is he making one guy miss, I think against Morgan State he made four guys miss.”
Logan had a career-high 128 return yards against Morgan State and is averaging a nation’s-best 37 yards per return. He could be an X-factor Saturday and West Virginia.
“I see his confidence growing,” Friedgen. “He’s out there trying to catch the ball and make a play every time.”
How pleased have you been with Logan? He could not be off to a much better start.
