Hubbard for the Enquirer Beechwood head football coach Noel C. Rash describes running back Logan Castleman as "a tough son of a gun.
He's one of the toughest kids I've ever coached. How many kids can come into Beechwood and play as a true freshman? He's done it.
He also had an interception from the safety spot, a touchdown-saving tackle in the fourth quarter, punted six times downing one inside the Simon Kenton yard line and batted an onside kick out of bounds with left to tie a ribbon around Beechwood's first victory over Simon Kenton since the season-opener.
I knew that my whole family was gonna be here, everyone in town was gonna be here. It was a fun atmosphere," Castleman said.
It was redemption for the two-time defending Class 1A state champion Tigers. Nearly one year ago to the day, Simon Kenton traveled to Fort Mitchell and left victors, which ended up being Beechwood's final loss of the year.

We're gonna play with spikes and that means we're gonna play with an edge to us," Rash said. When the field condenses like that, it allows us to play more, tight gap defense and it's tough to move our front four.
He's a great player and he's gonna be awesome in the next couple of years.
He's fun to watch," Castleman said. After a yard run to start the drive, Sherron took a direct snap on a fake punt 17 yards for a first down, then weaved his way for a yard touchdown in the waning seconds of the first half that gave Beechwood a edge going into the locker room. He's done an exceptional job filling in for Derry and he always will.
He just has a motor that no one has. The Pioneers self-destructed while driving for the game-tying score in the fourth quarter. Farfsing raced 38 yards and Jon Sergent followed with a 9-yard run that put Simon Kenton at the Beechwood 19, but consecutive false starts pushed the Pioneers offense back, and Beechwood's Luke Bolger finished the drive with a sack to force fourth-and Simon Kenton started its next drive at the Beechwood 37 after a yard punt return by Sergent and moved to the red zone after a yard personal foul on the Tigers.
We just didn't execute when we needed to make plays.
We've gotta find a way to make those plays. They are disciplined. They're physical. They're tough.
They're gonna be a state champion. I realize they're a Class A team and we're a 6A team, but they're well-coached. They do things the right way.
