HOUSTON - When Logan Tanner got home from his lacrosse game, he went to check the mail.
The mailbox was chuck full of letters from college coaches from the programs that have offered the three-star tight end from St. Pius X.
"It's very humbling and I was taken back and to have as many as I did I knew it must've taken a lot of time," Tanner said about the letters.
Just got home from my lacrosse game with a mailbox full of letters. Blessed and thankful for each coach taking their time to write these letters not just to me, but to my family as well. Cant wait to visit these campuses in person. @StPiusXFootball @CranfillGreg pic.twitter.com/tjmVgYlGaG— Logan Tanner (@iamlogantanner) March 24, 2021
Tanner is coming off a solid junior season for the Panthers, which saw them reach the TAPPS playoffs. The tight end finished with 1,059 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns on 43 catches and believes his best attributes is his versatility and route running.
Since the end of football season, Tanner has received offers from Yale, Eastern Illinois State, San Diego State, Bucknell, Air Force, Arkansas State, Utah, Navy, Tulane, Harvard and the University of Houston.
The recruiting process has been a "roller coaster" Tanner says and after June 1 he plans on visiting every school that has offered him along with Kansas State, Tennessee, Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M and SMU.
"Although simple I'm looking for a family atmosphere," Tanner said. "A place where I could feel like everyone from the coaches to the teachers on campus are all like a family."
So, what is he doing this offseason to get better?
First, starting with playing lacrosse at St. Pius X, Tanner can play in every position, except for goalie, at any time and he believes this will help him on the football field come the fall.
"Lacrosse translates well because I've learned to use my hips a lot better which helps my route running and blocking," Tanner said.
Outside of lacrosse, Tanner - whose favorite NFL tight end is Kansas City Chief Travis Kelce because of his great route running, putting the guy in front of him in the ground, and his swagger - is also working with his football teammates to get better for 2021.
"I'm working on building not just me but the brothers on my team with me," he said. "We go in groups to the weight room or go to the field and run routes. For me, personally, I've been working on my run blocking."

https://t.co/7XoWE3aDeO 5 total touchdowns, district championship game next week
D'vonne Hmielewski has become one of the standout young talents at quarterback in the city. Last week in a 48-7 win over Wharton, Hmielewski tallied five total touchdowns going 11 of 17 for 148 yards and four scores through the air and then tacking on 143 yards and a score on just 11 carries on the ground. Those are impressive for a quarterback at any level as he racked up 291 yards of total offense. What a performance.
Trace Holmes helped Sweeny bounce back from a loss to Sealy to defeat Brookshire Royal 41-20 last week. Holmes led the Bulldogs offense going 6 of 8 for 128 yards and two scores through the air and also had 23 yards and a score on the ground. Then he flipped over to the defensive side of the ball and reeled in two interceptions and recorded seven tackles. That is an all-around performance.

Bellville is coming off a 47-10 victory over La Marque last week and Richard Reese is a major reason why. Reese has been electric this season for the Brahmas. Reese rushed for 206 yards and three scores on just 17 carries last week. Bellville's final game of the regular season got cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns at Sweeny and they will finish the season at 8-1 with a 4-1 mark in district. Reese caps the regular season with 1,471 yards and 20 touchdowns on 158 carries as they look towards the playoffs. In all eight games this year, Reese has broken the 100-yard mark.

Caleb Pierson has been unbelievable for Huffman this season and especially the past two weeks. He had 15 tackles last week against Splendora and followed up that performance with a 21-tackle outing against Vidor last week. That is 36 tackles in two weeks, that is ridiculous! Pierson received an offer from Southern Arkansas on Saturday.

In Wheatley's win over Yates last week, Jaquell Bonner rushed for 153 yards on 24 carries and took the opening kickoff back for a touchdown. He showed off his speed last week against Yates and is a threat out of the backfield and the return game.
