12By Kris Freeman for White House Football

WHITE HOUSE — Senior kicker Logan Trimmer set a White House High School record Friday night with a 52-yard field goal in the fourth quarter against Pearl-Cohn.

The Blue Devils lost the game, 41-3. When the field goal was made, it was believed to be second all-time. After research, the kick was deemed to have beaten the school record of 51 yards, previously held by Bryan Walker against Greenbrier in 1992. It is the longest kick ever made by a Blue Devils player.

He is two field goals shy of Dillon Anderson’s mark of 12 field goals in a season, and six field goals shy of Chase Dunlap’s career made of 21.

Trimmer has made 10-of-15 field goals and 13-of-14 extra points in 2015, and is also the team’s leading receiver at tight end. In his career, he has made 15-of-20 field goals and 24-of-25 PATs, and has punted 99 times for an average of 34.0 yards, and kicked off 57 times with 34 touchbacks and an average of 53.1 yards per kickoff.

Trimmer has caught 19 passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns this season and 39 passes for 589 yards and six touchdowns in his career, and made 100 career tackles on defense with nine sacks and 14 tackles for losses.

Trimmer has a chance to break four more records. His current PAT percentage is 96.0. The record holder is Matthew Gossett at 95 percent (57-of-60). He averages 53.1 yards per kickoff and Gossett averaged 53.6 with 51 touchbacks. He needs three field goals to break the season mark and seven to break the career record. 

Clint Patana holds the punting average record at 40.83 yards.
