Conway hopes to carry Knights back to state tournament

By Jake Edmonds 5:23 PM August 6, 2014
PALMER –

The Colony High School Knights are back on the gridiron after an up-and-down 2013 campaign.

The Knights relied heavily on their offense last season, scoring 20 or more points per game in all but the first round of the Alaska State Tournament against Dimond High School, where they fell to the Lynx, 38-17. They hope to keep that offense going in 2014.

“Last year’s team, we had a lot of three-year starters, and they were really, really talented and had a lot of experience,” said head coach Brian McIntosh. “This team, a lot of them haven’t played varsity, but they’ve bonded much more as a team and they are just as talented as last year.”

One of the few returning starters from last season, and a pivotal part of Colony’s offense in 2014, is running back Logan Conway.

“He’s worked his tail off in this offseason, so he’s definitely going to be a driving force behind our success this year,” McIntosh said.

In 2013, Conway was a Railbelt all-conference 2nd-teamer. This year, he’s deflecting the hype to his teammates.

“The linemen, they’re getting it and everything, which I’m excited for being a running back,” Conway said after practice.

“We have a lot of receivers stepping up. Our quarterback – he’s an athlete. He’s impressing me,” he continued. “This is going to be his first year starting varsity, and he’s able to do that read option and everything awesome.”

In his fifth season, Coach McIntosh knows it’s a long road back to the playoffs. But with a player like Conway anchoring a young offense, the ceiling is high for the Knights in 2014.
