Former USD Coyote football standout Stefan Logan must be doing everything right in his NFL preseason performance with the Pittsburgh Steelers, based on the amount of ink the dude has been getting.
Logan was the main punt returner for the Steelers during Saturday’s 17-0 win over Buffalo. He returned four punts for 63 yards (an average of 15.8), with a long of 27 yards. But he didn’t get a chance to return a kick-off, which I’m sure is also a bittersweet feeling for Pittsburgh — 1) Yay, we got a shutout, but 2) Crap, we wanted to see what Logan can do.
Also Saturday, Logan was the feature in this Pittsburgh Post-Gazette story, written by Gerry Dulac. Included were comments from USD head coach Ed Meierkort, as well as Wes Beschorner and Joe Beschorner. Although, at point, Dulac refers to Wes as “Wally.”
The Post-Gazette also ran a column by Gene Collier about the Steelers’ upcoming decisions.
Also over the weekend, the AP (via Canadian Press) had a feature story on Logan’s effort to crack the Pittsburgh roster.
With NFL rosters needing to be cut to 75 by Tuesday, the Stefan Logan Watch picks up in intensity quickly. Yeah, the Steelers may have won the Super Bowl last year, but they had one of the league’s worst return groups. If there’s an area to seek improvement, it’s in the return game. We’ll see if the coaching staff sees Logan as the answer.
