CANFIELD OH- South Range has had a big tradition of incredible soccer in their program’s short history. They are one of only 2 team sports that has been to 2 state champion games. That means they attract a ton of talent as you can imagine. This week we got to catch up with one of their best this year. Junior Logan Butcher is a player that opposing coaches circle a couple of times in their scouting report. Butcher is one of the big players to watch if you go and see the Raiders play. However, he would never put the light on himself. Butcher is a humble team player that will always point to other teammates when asked about the team’s success. He is exactly the type of person a coach would dream of coaching.
That statement may just be why multiple coaches want Logan to play for their team in the same season. Butcher not only leads the Raiders on the soccer team, but also steps up to kick for the football team as well. An injury thrusted Butcher into the starting kicker role and he has done everything asked of him on a moments notice. He feels incredibly humbled to share the field with players that are part of a successful program. The Raiders feel just as humbled to have him.
Butcher took the time to talk to YSN’s Anthony Hartwig this week to talk about juggling soccer and football. They also discuss his favorite soccer players growing up, how he transitions from kicking a soccer ball to a football and much more.
