Rangers ready to rally behind new stars

Posted: Updated:
La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -

Defending champ Logan is ready to make another run at a conference title.

The Rangers have nine starters back from a team that went 11-1.

They'll have to make up for the loss of five first team all-conference performers on both sides of the ball last year. But, like many good programs, Logan figures to re-load with talent.

They've made it to level three of the playoffs three years in a row.

"Each year we have someone new step in. We have a couple of kids, Manny Buchannan and Noah Weisbrod are stepping in along with Tanner Holzer at fullback. The biggest thing is our o-line stays consistent over the years. The way we block things. That pretty much opens up the door for a lot of kids to run the ball," said head coach Casey Knoble.

"You've got guys that have been there before and who've played in big game situations.  A lot of the starters that are coming back are on the offensive line.  That's huge because in those big game situations you have to guys you can trust and do a good job," said center Collin Mastin.

Junior Trey Davis returns as the starting quarterback.  he was forced into action last season when injuries hit the quarterback position and gained valuable experience.

Logan also figures to have a very good defensive line.
