Dave Logan has been a broadcasting staple for so long, as play-by-play man for the Denver Broncos and host of the KOA afternoon-drive program The Ride Home, that it's easy to overlook what a truly remarkable athlete he was. But the folks at Parade magazine haven't forgotten. Logan made its list of the top-fifty top All America high school football players since 1963, when the mag selected its first team. His listing sits alongside honorifics for such luminaries as John Elway, Joe Montana and many other gridiron legends. Only bummer: His high school and hometown are listed as "Wheatridge," as opposed to "Wheat Ridge." But betcha the folks there care more about the recognition paid to a favorite son than Parade's inability to get the name right.
