Loggers Inexperienced, but Excited By Backfield Prospects (WA)

The Loggers don’t have a ton of experience, but there may be plenty of promise on the roster.

Onalaska brings back just a handful of starters from last year’s 6-4 squad, but most of those returning reps are in the backfield.

Lazaro Rodriguez and Ashton Haight are expected to get most of the carries in the Loggers’ triple-option offense. Rodriguez, a 5-foot-5 senior, saw plenty of action last year.

“I’m super excited to watch Lazaro. He’s a tough little back. It’s awesome,” Onalaska coach Mazen Saade said. “He’s just tough. He’s not scared of anybody, or anything.”

Haight, meanwhile, was a part-time starter last year as a freshman, and has looked even better early in summer practices after moving to fullback.

“That kid wearing 3s (33) is going to be something special,” Saade said. “He’s going to put up big numbers. He’s just got something about him.”

He’ll be in the backfield with sophomore Lucas Kreger, the likely starter at quarterback.

“He had a great offseason,” Saade said. “He worked hard in the weight room for us, and I think he’s just embraced the position.

“I’m excited to watch those two play,” Saade added, “that fullback and quarterback combination.”
