WINSTON-SALEM -- It was a night for the ages in a number of ways for Northern Guilford's football team.
The Nighthawks cruised to a 64-26 win against Charlotte Catholic in the NCHSAA Class 3-AA state championship game at BB&T Field.
Not only did the Nighthawks win, they capped a perfect 15-0 season in most impressive style. Leading the way was senior T.J. Logan.
Logan, in his final high school football game, had a night to remember, rushing for a record 510 yards and eight touchdowns on 28 carries.
Logan singlehandedly outgained the Cougars, who finished the night with 384 yards of offense. He scored on runs of 46, 27, 80, 85, 19, 14, 82 and 73 yards en route to being named the game's most valuable player.
