Raceland High School quarterback Logan Lundy had quite the busy Friday. First, he helped to save a couple, including a wheelchair-bound woman, escape a house fire. That night, he helped the Rams reach the KHSAA 1A semifinals with a 17-14 win over Hazard.
Lundy was traveling to the school at around 11:30 am when he noticed the fire.
“I was on my way to school and driving by the house,” he said. “I saw a man in the front yard, and he was stressed. I saw the caretaker and old woman inside the house, went in and helped her out the front door.”
While many would have either passed by or not gone inside, Lundy said that he had to act.
“I just had to help them,” he explained. “I think that anyone would have done it. There was no way that I was going to leave them like that.”
After his morning heroics, Lundy led the Rams past Hazard, 17-14, to advance to the semifinal round. In the game, Lundy had 53 yards passing, 50 yards rushing and 1 rushing touchdown. He was also called upon to deliver a huge first down to seal the win late.
“It was a big day,” he added. “The fire was in the morning, and we went out and got the big win later that night.”
Raceland will host Holy Cross (Louisville) in the semifinal match up this Friday at 7:30 pm.
