ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Cherry Creek High School Head Football Coach and Denver Broncos nominee 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.
Logan, who led Cherry Creek to its first 5A state championship in 18 years in 2014, joined Green Bay's Bruce Larson (winner) and Kansas City's Gregg Webb (runner-up) as finalists for the award which recognizes character and integrity, inspirational leadership, commitment to the community and on-field success.
For being selected as a finalist, he will receive a personal check for $2,500 in addition to a $5,000 grant for Cherry Creek's high school football program.
Named the 2014 Broncos High School Coach of the Year presented by the Colorado National Guard, 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).
His seventh and most recent state title came in just his third season leading the Bruins' football program. His 2014 squad defeated two-time defending 5A-champion Valor Christian High school by a score of 25-24 on Nov. 29, at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, giving Logan his seventh career state title.
Logan, who was also Denver's 2010 Don Shula NFL Coach of the Year nominee, has been involved with Broncos radio broadcasts for the last 25 years for 850 KOA in addition to his coaching duties. He completed his 18th full season as the play-by-play voice of the Broncos in 2014.
