Cherry Creek football coach Dave Logan finishes as runner-up for 2014 Don Shula NFL HS Coach of the Year Award
ENGLEWOOD – Cherry Creek High School head football coach Dave Logan finished as a runner-up for the 2014 Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year Award, the league announced on Friday, Jan. 23, 2015. The Denver Broncos nominee joined Green Bay’s Bruce Larson (winner) and Kansas City’s Gregg Webb (runner-up) as finalists.
The award recognizes character and integrity, inspirational leadership, commitment to the community and on-field success. For being selected as a finalist, Logan will receive a personal check for $2,500, and $5,000 grant for Cherry Creek’s football program.
Logan is the only head coach in high school football history to win championships with four different schools in a state’s highest classification (Arvada West – 1997; Chatfield – 2001; Mullen – 2004, ’08-10; Cherry Creek – 2014). Logan claimed his most recent state title – also his seventh – in 2014 during his third season leading the Bruins. It was a seemingly impossible victory as well, knocking off the two-time defending 5A state champion Valor Christian – a high school football program that also had never lost in the postseason since opening in 2007.
Aside from coaching high school football, Logan has also been involved with Broncos radio broadcasts for 850 KOA for the last twenty-five years. He just completed his eighteenth full season in 2014 as the play-by-play voice of the Broncos.
Logan has also been named the 2014 Broncos High School Coach of the Year presented by the Colorado National Guard, and was Denver’s 2010 Don Schula NFL Coach of the Year nominee as well.
