MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Morgantown High’s football team is regaining a major offensive weapon with the return of Logan Holgorsen.

WAJR-AM confirmed the junior quarterback has re-enrolled and is eligible to play immediately.

In July, the son of West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen announced he was transferring to St. Frances Academy in Baltimore. He returned to Morgantown after opening the season behind three-star recruit Jalon Jones, who has committed to Mississippi State and holds offers from Alabama, UCLA and Virginia Tech.

St. Frances is ranked No. 24 nationally in this week’s USA Today high school poll.

As a sophomore, Holgorsen led the Mohigans to a 10-3 record and a Class AAA state semifinal appearance, throwing for 1,355 yards with 14 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He holds scholarship offers from Bowling Green and North Texas.

Upon rejoining the lineup, Holgorsen is expected to boost an offense that is averaging just 30 yards passing per game and 171 yards overall through the first three weeks.

The rushing attack came to life last week in a 31-10 win over Parkersburg South when Ty Konchesky broke loose for 247 yards on 26 carries.

Morgantown (1-2) hosts Brooke tonight before beginning a three-game stretch against teams that reached last year’s playoffs.

The Mohigans visit defending champion Martinsburg and Musselman back-to-back before returning home to face conference rival Wheeling Park.
