Sophomore Jaden Sells catches a pass during the scrimmage against Trigg County on Friday. Logan County won 41-6.

Logan County football is back. Friday marked the last preseason scrimmage before the real tests of autumn. The Cougars look to pick up where they left off last year. The 2017 season was the best on record for Logan County. The team finished 11-1 with the only loss coming in the second round of the playoffs.

Coach Todd Adler's team has just over 20 Seniors on the roster this year with plenty of younger talent to boot.

On Friday, The Cougars hosted Trigg County for a sunset scrimmage at Logan County High School. The Cougars easily took care of business, beating the Wildcats 41-6 in 24 minutes of scrimmage play.

The Logan County defense held strong against the Wildcats, allowing negative five yards on the ground. Trigg County only had 78 yards through the air. The only score from the visitors was a quarterback run late in the contest. Nate Woodall also intercepted a Trigg County pass for an early pick six.

Tyler Ezell was flawless at quarterback for the Cougars. He threw six completions in as many attempts for 79 yards and two touchdowns. Ezell also ran for 52 yards and a score.

Reggie Powell accounted for 53 of the passing yards with just one catch. The Senior receiver recorded just one reception for a 53 yard touchdown. Chandler Silvey also caught a touchdown pass from Ezell.

On the ground, the Cougars had touchdown runs from Ezell, Maurice Gordon, and Zach Yates.

The Cougars and Panthers will each start the regular season this Friday night. Russellville is on the road in week one. They will play at Glasgow.

The Cougars open the season at home against Butler County. The game will be at 7 p.m.
