Logue signs football letter of intent with the Hornets

Finding a list of laundermats convenient to the campus of the California State University at Sacramento is suddenly tops on Andrea Logue’s things-to-do list.

Logue’s son Matt, Bear River’s two-time All-Sierra Foothill League selection at both linebacker and fullback, 2001 SFL defensive player of the year and Cal-Hi Sports second-team all-state selection, signed a letter of intent to play football for the Hornets in front of a group of about 20 friends, teammates, teachers and coaches Wednesday.

“I’m really happy he’s going to be so close to home. (Now) we’re going to able to see him all of the time,” she said. “And I’m sure he’ll be bringing big piles of laundry home.”

College programs across the West chased him, but the 6-foot, 2-inch, 210-pound, three-year letter winner, who’ll line up at linebacker for the Hornets, fell for Sac State’s hard sell.

“I talked to a lot of schools early on, but they all kind of faded away,” he said. “I really liked that Sac State is real close to home and that they have a lot of plans for the future. They’ll be playing bigger schools, like Oregon and Hawaii.”

Matt’s father and Bruin football coach, Terry Logue, liked the way the Hornet coaching staff made signing his youngest son its top priority.

“We were in their office (for the interview) and they said to Matt, ‘You’re our No. 1 draft pick.’ The other schools didn’t show the same kind of enthusiasm and desire as Sac State,” he said.

During his time in a Bruin football uniform, Logue broke, tied or had a hand in nine school records.

He set the mark for carries in a game (37), season (261) and career (562). His 261 touches were also tops in the Sacramento area last fall.

Logue’s 1,434 yards rushing was third in the SFL and a school record for most yards in a 10-game season. He scored a Bruin record 27 points in a game and tied the mark for most touchdowns in a game (4) against Del Oro of Loomis two season ago.

Defensively, Logue led the league with a school record 106 tackles. He’s also Bear River’s all time tackle leader with 290. Logue was also part of the crew which tied a record for most interceptions in a game with four against Placer on September 28.

“I’m not only going to miss him as a dad, but as a coach, because he’s a very talented football player. It’s going to be tough to replace him on both sides of the ball” Terry Logue said.
