LMS plays at Hurricane this coming Thursday in a 7 p.m. game.
A win by Logan over HMS would give Logan Middle School’s football team team its best record in school history at 7-1, surpassing the 6-2 mark from 2003 — a team which was coached by current LHS mentor Gary Mullins in his only season as the T-Wolves’ coach.
A win over Hurricane would also advance Logan to the Mid-Valley Conference championship game for the first time in school history.
