During his storied tenure at Ohio State (1974-1977), Jeff served his first two seasons as back-up running back to two-time Heisman Trophy winner Archie Griffin. In 1976, Jeff stepped out of Archie’s shadow to become Ohio State’s star running back for the following two seasons. Jeff was very instrumental in leading Ohio State to four consecutive Big Ten Championships and four bowl games during his illustrious career. He also was recognized as co-captain, Academic All-American, Big Ten All-Academic, and All-Big Ten first-team running back in 1977. Jeff became just the second person in Ohio State football history to rush for over 1,200 yards in a regular season (1976), with 1,248 on 218 carries and six touchdowns in 12 games, for an average of 104.0 yards per game.
Jeff has had an extraordinary professional career since graduating from Ohio State in 1978 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism and public relations. Among his many accomplishments are serving as color analyst for The Ohio State Radio Network from 1999-2005. He also is one of the founding members of the “The Logan Family Foundation” which benefits children and their families in Start County, Columbus and Ashland, Ohio.
Jeff currently is a financial advisor with New England Financial and has been an advisor since 1980. He served 12 years on the Varsity “O” Alumni Board where he is a Past-President. He served on the selection committee for the hiring of Jim Tressel, and has been invited by current football coach Urban Meyer to speak to the football team about the transition into “real-life” after football.
He married Dena (Barry) Logan, a former OSU cheerleader, and they have two grown children, Katie and Christopher. He resides in Dublin, Ohio, is actively involved with Jack Nicklaus’ Memorial Tournament and is a two-time former club champion at Muirfield Village.
He is a brilliant speaker and shall provide us with great insight into what should prove to be a very exciting 2015 Ohio State football season.
During dinner OSULA will be auctioning off two special items.
The first item — an Autographed Football by our legendary two-time Heisman Trophy winner…the one and only… Archie Griffin.
The second item — Two Tickets to the marquee game on the Ohio State home schedule — Michigan State – on Nov. 21 in our excellent President Club seats located near the 10-yard line in A Deck.
