2017 was a season for the Cougars that people will talk about for many years to come. Everyone already talked about the losing streak that this team carried for 42 games over nearly four years. Once the streak was broken during the last game of the 2016 season, there was a buzz around this team. People close to the team could feel the winds shifting around Coach Todd Adler and the Logan County Cougars. It was known before the start of the season that this year would be different. Coach Adler hoped they would win at least half of their games. In the end, it was much more than that. The 2017 Cougars were much more than anyone expected. Logan County finishes the season with a record of (11-1) after finally losing in the second round of the playoffs on Friday. The loss was the first loss suffered by the team in 385 days.

Friday night, the Cougars hosted the Hopkinsville Tigers for the second time this season. The first meeting was decided by a last-second touchdown by quarterback Tyler Ezell. The Cougars won 13-12. The Tigers have not lost since that game. It was clear from the very first play that this improved Hopkinsville team came to play.

By the end of the first quarter, the Tigers were already in control. The Score was 29-0 after four touchdowns. It would be 43-0 at halftime.

The second half was played with a running clock. The final was 43-8 in favor of Hopkinsville. The Tigers will play Franklin-Simpson in Franklin this Friday. The Wildcats destroyed Madisonville-North Hopkins 62-6.

The Logan County Cougars players should hold their heads high. This team turned around a football program that has seen so many dark days in the past. Coach Todd Adler, in his second year, has given the community something to be excited about for years to come. The Cougars will lose only nine Seniors this year. The 2018 season will see over 20 Seniors on the roster.
