Football Assistant Coach Mr. Adam Barth has been named the first recipient of the Paul Loggan Award, which goes to the state’s top high school assistant football coach. Barth said he was honored to receive the award. 

Mr. Paul Loggan was the athletics director at North Central High School when he died of Covid-19 last spring. Barth said, “His legacy will live on for many generations. Knowing the impact he had on so many other people is so humbling to me.” 

The Indiana Football Coaches Association recognized Barth for his work as an assistant coach for the Class 5A State championship football team. “Honestly, this is a true testament to the Cathedral program, (Head) Coach (Mr. Bill) Peebles ‘88 and other assistants,” said Barth. He said he believes that the main reason he won this award was because of the players he gets to coach, “most importantly, the outstanding men I am grateful to work with every day.”
