A Tale of Two Backs

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - It's a tale of two running backs.


Tioga's Trey Logan is coming off of one of his best games of the season, 212 yards rushing and 3 touchdowns. He says that he'll do whatever it takes to make sure that the Indians come out with a win.

“Whatever they need me as I can be,” Logan said. “I mean, hey, I can do anything from running inside zone to outside zone.”

“He has some God-given ability that we can't take credit for as coaches,” Tioga head football coach Kevin Cook said. “He will bring every pound on his body to block, and that's something that a lot of running backs don't want to do.

On the other side, they don't call him 'King Arthur' for no reason.

Peabody's Arthur Lavalais seems to rule whatever land he steps foot on. Most recently, he hit the Buckeye Panthers for 95 yards on the ground and 4 touchdowns. He says that he's doing whatever he can to make sure his team comes out victorious.

“I’m just leading by example,” Lavalais said. I’m just coming to practice every day, doing the right things, and being available on Friday nights. Whatever my team needs me to do, I’ll do it."

On Peabody's defense, Tre Brass had a game that helped him to emerge as the Warhorses go-to playmaker. He had 12 tackles with 3 forced fumbles against Buckeye, but he says there are still some things that they need to work on as a team.

“We need to be better at tackling and wrapping up more,” Brass said. “We had a lot of missed tackles against Buckeye, and we just want to do better.”

Obviously, these two backs aren't the only ones that star in this game, but we'll just have to see what happens on Friday night.
