Newcastle Football Spotlight – Alex Logan – Presented by RibCrib

Senior wide receiver and defensive back for the Newcastle Racers Alex Logan first began playing football in the eighth grade.

“My friends first convinced me to play football for the middle school,” Logan said. “I always played backyard football and watched all the time so I felt like I could give it a shot.”

Years later Logan is a leading member of the varsity program at Newcastle High School and days out from a playoff game against Elk City. Newcastle finished the regular season with a 7-3 record after dropping their final two games by a combined eight points.

“The season is going well and we have a good shot at making it deep into the playoffs,” Logan said. “Our goal has always been to get a state championship and this year we have a really good shot to do so.”

As a senior Logan tries to bring his experience and leadership to the field.

“I try to lead by example and encourage our younger athletes to go hard and get better in practice each day,” Logan said. “We try to develop every player here at Newcastle with our amazing coaching staff that all have college or professional experience.”

Off the field Logan also receives a lot of support from friends and family for which he is very grateful.

“My parents will always be my biggest inspiration because they always have my back and support me unconditionally. Without them some things would be very hard to overcome in my life,” Logan said.

On the field Logan looks up to Dallas Cowboys and former Oklahoma Sooner wide receiver CeeDee Lamb because of his play style and high character.

As Logan’s senior season comes to a close he is hoping to end things on a high note. He has made many great memories thus far into his career and is hoping to create some more in the playoffs. To date Logan’s favorite memory came in a game against Bethany his junior year.

“We were down a touchdown and Bethany had the ball on the 20 yard line, I was lined up at free safety and they were running a zone read and I was going to fill my gap and as I’m filling my gap the running back and quarterback fumbled the handoff,” Logan said. “The ball went over the front line and in my hands and I took it and scored to put us in position to tie the game in a crucial district game. Unfortunately we missed the extra point but the moment was so surreal and unbelievable.”

Logan hopes for the opportunity to make another impact in a big game this year in the playoffs. When the season is over Logan will begin looking toward the baseball season and life after high school. While he doesn’t have an exact plan yet – he’s waiting to hear offers from schools in baseball and football – but regardless if he doesn’t play college sports he wants to continue his education in college and pursue a degree in sports management.
