Local teams open their

seasons Friday on WRUS

The 2019 high school football season begins Friday night for both local high schools. The Logan County Cougars, who have gone 21-3 the last two seasons, kick things off at 7 p.m. against visiting Butler County. Coach Todd Adler have to replace one of Logan's best-ever players in Caden McKinnis, fellow college skill players Chandler Silvey and Dontavious Blann along with several outstanding linemen. The Cougars return the Offensive Player of the last two years, quarterback Tyler Ezell and fullback Gary Hardy, along with reigning Defensive Player of the Year Zach Yates. 
For Russellville, Coach Mikie Benton will have a more obvious replacement for SKY Small School Quarterback of the Year Jacob Naylor in sophomore Lennon Ries, but replacing linemen like Javier Canales and Kyran Williams along with kicker Hunter McDowell and running back/ lineman Ed Barber could be tougher with a young, small squad. The Panthers are part of a doubleheader and will play host Warren East about 8:30.
