COLUMBIA CITY — After 5,308 passing yards and nearly every conceivable throwing record at Columbia City High School, senior quarterback Logan Rehrer as he says in his own words “ready to take it to the next level.”
Friday, the Eagles all-time passing leader announced he’s taking his talents to Indiana State University.
Rehrer joins the Division I Sycamores of the Missouri Valley Conference as a preferred walk-on.
“It’s definitely been a dream of mine ever since I was little,” Rehrer said. “It’s kind of nice to finally get the decision made and get all the weight off my shoulders.
“All of the hard work throughout the years has paid off and after a great senior season with the football team I’m ready to compete at a d-one level.”
His choice came down the coaches and the atmosphere at ISU.
“When I went down to visit it was just a good group of guys to be around,” Rehrer noted. “It’s the type of people I want to spend the next four years with.”
Rehrer noted he will redshirt his freshman year as the football team has two senior quarterbacks going into next season.
The following season, Rehrer will compete in the top three depth chart of QBs.
In his senior season at Columbia City, Rehrer led the Eagles to a 10-2 record and their first Northeast Hoosier Conference title since 1990.
Rehrer broke single season records in passing with 2,508 yards on 158-of-298 (53 percent) throwing and 26 touchdown passes.
He’s spent three and a half years under center for the Eagles and two under head coach Randy Hudgins.
“Indiana State is not only getting a good football player but an outstanding student,” Hudgins said. “He’s one of Columbia City’s finest. It’s appropriate for Logan to be one of the first to do it for us here.”
