Behind the spotlight: Fleming, Logan aid Trinity

NATCHEZ — Two bright spots stood out for the Trinity Episcopal Day School football team Friday night in its 37-6 loss to Centreville Academy.

Freshman running back Demarcus Fleming got the notoriety by rushing for 77 yards and a touchdown, but head coach Josh Loy said sophomore linebacker Quinton Logan was one of the players he noticed on defense.

“Quinton Logan was outstanding on defense (Friday),” Loy said.

Logan collected a handful of tackles for Trinity during the game, but Centreville’s run-heavy offense did not allow him to use his biggest strength.

“I played pretty well I guess,” Logan said. “I play defensive end and linebacker, and I’m mostly a pass rusher.”

Loy said Logan is a player that will be an asset for the Saints for the next three seasons.

“As a 10th grader, he’s a special football player,” Loy said. “He has quickness and uses his hands well, and he’s relentless to the football. If he continues to improve, he has an extremely bright future in this sport.”

After Friday night’s 24-6 win against Hillcrest Christian School, much of the focus was on Adams County Christian School quarterback Brandon Ross.

In addition to throwing the go-ahead touchdown, Ross also led defensively, tallying nine tackles, one sack and one forced fumble.

But head coach David King had praises for linebacker Tristan Beach, who racked up seven tackles against the Cougars.

“He’s a physical kid,” King said. “These kids have gone completely to a new offense and defense and only have one game under their belts, so it’s very difficult to grasp everything we’ve thrown at them, but I think he got much better tonight.”

Beach said a good week of practice made him feel comfortable on the field Friday.

“Paying attention to the ball makes me read and react really good,” Beach said. “They were running pretty much most of the time, so I could read where they were going.”

A two-way player who plays offensive line as well, Beach said he prefers defense and enjoys hitting. Even though he can hit people playing offensive line, Beach said the feeling doesn’t compare to what it’s like hitting someone as a linebacker.

“It’s way different getting to chase a runner down or meeting them in the hole or something,” Beach said.
