Logan football features a family legacy.
A pair of brothers following in the footsteps of their
a member of the Logan Wall of Fame.
Johnny 54/17 It's actually the first year we have
ever played on a football field together.
And it's actually the only year brothers Johnny and
Matt Kind will both wear Logan red and white together.
Johnny 51/35 I like to pick on him a little bit.
Matt 47/35 I'm faster than him, so I'll take that!
John 52/00 Uhhhhh, We'll see about that.
But they might not be the fastest in the family .
that might be their dad .
Johnny 52/15 I think he's still got some wheels, but
we can take him now, I think laughs.
Before being elected to Congress .
the 1981 Logan grad was a standout at quarterback.
Kind 1/00 The inter-city games were a lot of fun.
I mean there was a lot of jawing back and forth all
year long with players at Central and Aquinas and
then when the games arrived, that's what you really
his older son starts at quarterback for Logan .
his younger son starts as a defensive back.
Kind 00/30 This is a sport I love to play, and to
watch the boys get so much enjoyment and fun out of
playing football, it's good to see.
From father to son, Johnny says he takes advice from
his dad about playing quarterback.
Johnny 53/00 He'll pick out some spots where he's
like, you know what you should've done here, you should've
done a quick slant or a fade, or something just by
the way the DB's playing on him.
But the biggest advice that hits home for Johnny and
cherish the season the way their parents will from
Matt 48/52 He's always talking, did you hear me on
the sidelines last game? We're like, no dad, we were
playing the game! He's like, well, I was yelling,
I was cheering for you, we're like thanks, that's
Johnny 52/40 He tells us really look forward to these
high school days, don't rush through it because it's
a good time.
And in the interest of fairness .
we contacted Ron Kind's challenger in November .
He said he was fine with us doing the story.
He says it's always great to see any strong family
bond between a father and his children.
