Logan High School has been awarded as an NFL Hall of Fame High School. The plaque reads
Logan, Utah Hometown Hall of Famer (tm)
Merlin Olsen's faith inspired football career began at Logan High School. He attended Utah State, starring at defensive tackle. He also graduated summa cum laude, earned a master's degree and was given an honorary doctorate. He was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams in the first round. He joined the Rams as a defensive tackle and became part of one of the most famous and productive lines ever in the NFL, "The Fearsome Foursome". He also played with his brothers, Phil and Orrin. Olsen made the Pro Bowl a record 14 times. His post-athletic career was equally spectacular, as the lead analyst for NBC's NFL coverage and a major prime-time star on T.V. shows "Little House on the Prairie" and "Father Murphy".
The Pro Football Hall of Fame and Ford Motor Company are proud to recognize Logan, Utah, as the official "Hometown" for Merlin Olsen to Celebrate His Excellence Everywhere, hereby dedicating this plaque to Logan High School, September 21, 2017.
