The James Logan High football team has finalized its 2012 schedule, during which the Colts will play as an independent.
Logan will open its season with a Week 0 home game against Reed of Sparks, Nev. Reed went 12-2 last season, losing to Bishop Gorman-Las Vegas in the Nevada Class 4A state championship game.
The other addition to the schedule is a Week 5 road game against Del Oro-Loomis. The Golden Eagles went 13-2 and were the Northern California representative to the California Interscholastic Federation Division II state championship bowl game and lost to Helix-La Mesa 35-24.
That completes Logan’s schedule around previously announced games with San Leandro, San Ramon Valley, Heritage and Berkeley. The Colts will play four games against Mission Valley Athletic League teams (Washington, Newark Memorial, Irvington and Mission San Jose).
“The main goal is to be battle-tested for the playoffs,” Logan coach George Zuber said.
Here’s the Logan schedule by week:
Week 0 (8/24): vs. Reed-Sparks, Nev.
Week 1 (8/31): vs. San Leandro at Chabot
Week 2 (9/7): at San Ramon Valley
Week 3 (9/14): vs. Heritage
Week 4 (9/21): vs. Berkeley
Week 5 (9/28): at Del Oro-Loomis
Week 6 (10/5): Bye
Week 7 (10/12): vs. Washington
Week 8 (10/19): at Newark Memorial
Week 9 (10/26): at Irvington (TAK)
Week 10 (11/2): vs. Mission San Jose
*Note: I only listed dates as Fridays, but some of those games, particularly against MVAL teams, could end up being Saturday dates.
