Most athletes would be satisfied with just having the opportunity to play college sports or with breaking a school record as a junior and then breaking that very same record their senior season but that’s not the case for linebacker Logan Thimons. While all that is a great honor for him, he is still striving to be better each day and is happy to see all his hard work paying off. “It’s very important to me that I broke my record from last season, it shows me that all the hard work I have been putting in is paying off but I still want to improve.”
Thimons sets the Freeport High School record last season with 21 tackles in a single game last season. Thimons broke that record this season by recording 24 tackles in a game.
Thimons is excited to begin his future at WVU next season and is becoming very familiar with the atmosphere early on. “I attend every home game and have a chance to speak with defensive coordinator Tony Gibson and it allows me to bond with the current recruits.” The 2016 class is setting a trend by coming to WVU as a very familiar and bonded group of young men which could bold well for WVU. “I can’t wait to spend 4 years with this group of guys,” Thimons said, “I have had the chance to get very close with a lot of these guys, especially with Reese, Zach, Cody, Chase, and Dylan.”
The progress that WVU has made this season is something that stands out to Logan while he watches the Mountaineers. “This is a solid group that had to overcome sending two players to the NFL which is never easy but these guys have overcome that adversity.” WVU now faces one of it’s toughest task yet, replacing All American Karl Joseph, who Thimons says has become his favorite player. “He is a completely different breed of football player that doesn’t come along very often, his work ethic is unlike anyone else I have seen and I just hate that this happened to him.” Aside from Joseph, Nick Kwiatkoski and Jared Barber have stood out to Logan this season. “These two have been excellent both on and off the field and I hope to pick up where they will leave off.”
While visiting WVU is important to Logan, the excitement he has to step onto Mountaineer Field is indescribable. “It’s just hard to imagine myself stepping in the position that Nick and Jared currently have in less than a year but it’s a absolute honor to continue the linebacker legacy that WVU has built.”
Thimons has the heart and desire to become another great linebacker at WVU and if his senior season is any indication of what the future holds for him, then get ready to hear his name called a lot on Saturday’s as he anchors the Mountaineer defense.
