#41 Logan Haug
Position: Defensive End
Previous College: None
Projection: Scout Team
Status: Preferred Walk-On
Logan Paul Haug (b. Nov. 18, 1992) is a preferred walk-on from B&B High School, where he averaged 24.4 yards per game as a senior tight end in eight-man football. Tight end was the position he was projected to play for us.
That plan seems to have changed. He left the team briefly in the fall to concentrate on his studies, only to return in the spring. In the meantime, he shed 20-plus pounds and converted to the defensive line.
He has the chops to play the positions. At B&B, he had 64 tackles, eight sacks, two pass breakups, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery as a defensive end.
B&B won the 2010 state title, and Haug was named first-team all-state and the 2010 Eight-Man Player of the Year.
He was an honorable-mention tight end across all high school classifications, too. And he runs a 4.7 40-yard dash.
I could go on, detailing his exploits in shot put (ninth at state), academics (4.0 GPA, 30 ACT, Kansas Honor Scholar) and community service (Future Business Leaders of America, Little League coach), or I could just link this video.
All in all, pretty swell for a walk-on. He'll probably only ever see time on the scout team, but you never know who the next Ryan Mueller or Jordan Voelker will be. It seems there's always a guy like that on the roster. Maybe it's Haug.
