Dave Logan is perhaps one of Colorado’s finest all-around athletes. He is the first Coloradoan, and only the second person, to be drafted in the same year by the National Football League, the National Basketball League and Major League Baseball.
Logan first gained national recognition at Denver’s Wheat Ridge High School as a Prep All-American in football and basketball. Also, he was awarded the Fred Steinmark Award for high school athletes who exhibit excellence in athletics, academics and citizenship.
Logan stayed near home to play three sports for the University of Colorado, where he twice won the Big Eight Conference Athlete of the Year Award. After graduation, he had the unique option of playing three different professional sports. Logan decided to pursue a football career with the Cleveland Browns. He spent seven successful seasons in Cleveland before returning to Colorado to play one more season with the Denver Broncos.
After retiring from football, Logan took his talents to the broadcast booth as the radio voice of the Broncos and host of various sports talk programs. Logan returned to the football field as coach at Arvada West High School in 1993. His 1997 squad won the 5A state football championship.
