Willis provides stinger to Hornet attack!
Logan Willis is your prototype for a Friday night, high school, football star. Can’t tell you his measurables, can’t even guess what his 40-yard dash time might be, but I can tell you I would hate to have to tackle him with him having gained a full head of steam. Really, really good football player and a credit to the game.Fletcher W. Long, KPGFootball Senior Scout and Editorial Board Member
There are players just made for Friday nights. Logan Willis is both such a player and a player we have before featured.
Willis is a load. Ask any team in the Class 2A’s second district and they will be happy to confirm. If you doubt us, try to tackle him.
Willis is built low to the ground and cuts on a dime. He has excellent body-lean and wastes little to no time getting upfield, preferring the north-south route to traveling east-west.
Willis’ stats from last season bear testament to this fact. He gained 1,197-yards a season ago on the ground from his FB post in 198-carries. That is a smidgen over 6-yards a carry.
Willis scored 11-rushing TDs or a TD every 18th carry. This tells most scouts he is not as much a break-a-way threat as he is a threat to break your will to continue living. Willis is like a battering ram.
Now the Hornets throw it sparingly. Still, Willis nabbed 10-receptions a year ago for 107-receiving yards. He was the team’s leading offensive scorer.
Willis play 2A football which is really the land of the two-way, iron-man player. While Willis did play LBer for a handful of snaps he was largely an offensive player. This should tell you how critical he was deemed to be by the coaching staff to the team’s offensive attack. Couldn’t risk getting him injured.
The Hornets are coming off a 7-5 and the team has been a threat the last few years to challenge Owensboro Catholic’s seeming death-grip on the district crown.
We believe it will be O-Cath and Hancock battling this year too. We can’t wait to see how it shakes out. I can tell you this…Owensboro Catholic better come up Aces on defending this tank or they may just get flattened.
