Like Father, Like Son: Meet Logwone Mitz
On February 8th, 2007, Logwone Mitz, son of Seahawks Alumni Alonzo Mitz, signed a letter of intent to play football for Washington State University.
Cougfan.com describes Logwone as “The ultimate big-back. He pounds defenses into submission and has good vision and power through the hole. He’ll never run away from defenders, but that’s alright, he’d rather run over them anyway. He gets the tough yards inside and has enough power to break the tackle attempts of safeties and corners.”
Logwone’s future coach, Bill Doba, had this to say about his lone running back recruit for 2007: “He has great genes. His dad (Alonzo) played for the Seahawks and his mom ran track at Oregon. He was a very serious kid in our summer camp. He could play right away. He could be a lead back, but has good lateral moves too.”
Logwone was the No. 11-rated prep fullback in the nation, averaging 104 rushing yards per game in 2006 and was on track for a 1,000-yard year before an ankle sprain shelved him late in the season.
Named first-team all-KingCo Class 4A, he is a punishing runner who has been timed in the 40 at 4.55 seconds. Logwone also is a league champion discus thrower.
