Latrobe coach Ray Reitz called quarterback Logan Carns one of the best kept secrets in the WPIAL, and for good reason.

Carns, a senior, is looking to finish his high school career with his best season.

Despite an injury that kept him from playing quarterback for part of the 2012 season, Carns rushed for a team-high 543 yards and three touchdowns and completed 57 of 103 passes for 692 yards and five touchdowns.

Now Carns hopes to impress some college coaches.

“He's an athlete,” Reitz said. “We'll probably use him at multiple positions. He's starting to receive some interest.”

Q: The Latrobe Wildcats will have a successful season because …

A: Our offensive line is a lot better than the 2012 season, and we'll be better at stopping the run on defense. We need to be sound tacklers.

Q: Which is your favorite college football team?

A: Pitt. Being from Latrobe, I always rooted for them. My dad, Mark, is a Pitt graduate, and he has season tickets. We're going to the Florida State game on Monday. I believe Pitt should do well in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Q: I'd rather play NCAA Football over Madden on Wii because …

A: There are more fun options in the college game. There are so many different types and styles of offense.

Q: What type of music do you listen to?

A: Rap. I like Wiz Khalifa and Ace-Hood. I listen, but I can't sing.

Q: What is your most memorable moment while hunting?

A: Last fall when I bagged my first buck, a six-point, on my uncle's property. It was awesome, crazy. It fell on my first shot.

Q: The Steelers will win the Super Bowl in February because …

A: The offensive line will improve during the season, and the defense will be strong. Everyone has to contribute for them to be good, and my favorite player, Troy Polamalu, will have a big season.

Q: What's your favorite class in school?

A: Math because I like solving problems.
