’24 WR heading into pivotal senior season
Rogers has been among the premier performers on this end of Kentucky since his Middle School All-star days where he made, pretty much, every all-star squad in existence. He has far from disappointed as a high schooler as both Calil McNary and he are among the more coveted prospects in the commonwealth at their respective positions. This is a 5’10,” 160-pound burner who is a sprinter on the HS track team and who figures to play at WR next level. Kid is explosive.HB Lyon, Scouting Division, KPGFootball
Around the Hopkins County Central program it is referred to as the “Air Raid” attack. It is synonymous with the program in western Kentucky which has been setting the pace in offensive efficiency.
Over the previous four (4) years, the Storm has accumulated 7,559-yards of total offense with 66-TD’s. Over that period of time, Central QB’s have ranked seventh in KY and second in 4A in ’19, fifth in KY and third in 4A in ’20, 11th in KY and first in 4A in ’21, and 13th in 4A in ’22.
This isn’t with the same QB either as regardless of whom has been under center, the system has consistently performed exceedingly well. That should bode well for any young kid at QB or WR looking for a program which will promote and develop him for the next level.
One of the stalwarts in this attack has been Logan Rogers at WR. Rogers is a 5’10,” 160-pound burner who performs equally well on the gridiron and the track as a sprinter. Rogers is a true 4.5-second, 40-yard dash guy with the fully-automated, 100-meter track times to support it.
Last year, Rogers caught 44-receptions for 599-yards receiving. The ’24 speedster was second on the team in scoring and produced nine (9)-TD’s receiving, four (4) -rushing, with a two (2)-pointer thrown into the mix.
Rogers also played some defense. Although his defensive time was somewhat limited, Rogers still managed to be among the leaders in PBU’s and INT’s.
As for next level, the Govs, from Austin Peay have been hanging around this prospect and appear very interested. The same can be said for Murray State.
What is the level of the interest and does it come with money is anyone’s guess. There are plenty of programs looking to throw moolah Rogers’ way.
Rogers has been selected to play in the Hawaii Tiki Bowl All-American Game. This is a huge honor and indicative of the type career he has had and the interest colleges have shown him.
First there is the matter of his senior season. Both All-State FB, Calil McNary, and he would like to take this venture out the way they came in, with a deep run in the playoffs. McNary and Rogers were prominent stars on the South Hopkins Middle run to the championship game in ’18.
Who knows, maybe the Air Raid attack, with two of its most key captains, can strike once more. We’ll have a good time answering that question.
