Kokotovich Breaks Gladwin’s Single-Season Touchdown Record Set in 1961
GLADWIN — Gladwin junior Logan Kokotovich played a key role in the Flying G’s high-powered offense this season, and he has a school record to prove it.
With his performance last week against Standish-Sterling, Kokotovich reached 22 touchdowns on the season, breaking a 70-year-old record at Gladwin set by Doug Redman in 1961.
“I just think it’s awesome. Just came up as a freshman and worked hard for three years now. Everything is falling into place,” Kokotovich said. “I just started off, wasn’t as fast or that coordinated. And then coach, getting me in the weight room, doing summer conditioning and stuff just kind of made me want to work hard and just gave me a mentality that like, ‘I want to be the best, and I want our team to win.'”
The Flying G’s will start the postseason on Friday against Clare at home at 7 p.m. It will mark the second time the two teams will meet this season, with Gladwin winning the first game, 48-42. Kokotovich had five touchdowns in that game.
