East Hamilton running back Logan Jackson will miss the remainder of the playoffs after learning he tore the ACL in his left knee, according to coach Ted Gatewood.

The senior ranked among the area’s rushing leaders with 1,643 yards and 25 touchdowns, averaging 8.9 yards per carry to lea the Hurricanes to their second straight District 6-AA championship. Last week he helped third-ranked East Hamilton claim the program’s first playoff win, gaining 96 yards and scoring two TDs on just nine carries before leaving the game in the second quarter with the injury. East Hamilton went on to a 38-0 win over Marshall County and will host Page in a Class 4A second-round game this week.
