Logansport Defending 1A Champs 23 in 23

August 24, 2017 - While many defending championship winning teams go into the season expecting to be hunted, the Logansport Tigers are only focused on doing the hunting.The taste of success has this team more determined on staying the kings of the 1A jungle. 

While the goal is always to win championships,  the achievement doesn't mean satisfaction and that's exactly the mindset of the Logansport Tigers going into the 2017 season. The defending 1a state champs say they're now addicted to winning and want to work harder despite the success

"Definitely an addiction we addicted to it now for real everyday that's all they talk about, state. That's all we want; everyone on the team just wants state. Makes us want to work harder makes us want to do more and try to strive to be a better athlete, also a better person in life. Makes us want to do better and hopefully prove people wrong and do what we have to do."

As far as maintaining the thrown head Coach Kevin Mgee knows the Tigers have a bullseye on the their back this season but he doesn't expect his players mentalities to be affected by it.

Coach Mgee said: "Its probably more in our minds as coaches in our preparation to make sure that we do stay focused and we don't lose focus because the first time you do somebody is going to catch you slipping. You have to prepare with the assumption that everyone is coming to get you, that has to scare you enough to make you work hard to prepare to win every game."

One mind that isn't easily affected by pressure is wide reciever John Stevens jr. As the son of former Patriots running back and a TCU commit, Stevens will be a major target but remains confident.

John Stevens said: "For us win another state championship, everybody is going to want to beat us. We cant let anyone beat us because it will give them bragging rights."
