2015: Eddie Logans, 70, One of “The Twins”

Eddie Logans, 70, from a family of athletes and achievers, died after a long illness on July 17.

Eddie and his twin brother, Elmer, preceded by footballer-wrestler-hurdler Tommy, were standouts at San Diego High..

Eddie ran the 440 in :49.6, the third fastest time in San Diego County, and Elmer was the County’s leading low hurdler and a qualifier for the state meet in 1962.

The twins led a spirited and undermanned San Diego team in a bid to upset Lincoln in a roaring 1962 dual track meet at Lincoln.

Eddie and Elmer each won their events against the favored Hornets, who finally pulled out a 57-47 victory.

Eddie got a measure of revenge later in the season at the Easter Relays at Sweetwater.

Logans anchored a 3:22.6 victory in the mile relay as the Cavemen soundly defeated the Hornets, anchored by the legendary Vernus Ragsdale.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 30, at Blessed Trinity Christian Ministries on Highland Avenue, 2609 Highland Avenue in National City.

Conducting  will be the Rev. Dr. Clyde Oden of Los Angeles.  Oden, the twins’ teammate in 1962 , was a standout half-miler who ran a career best in that meet at Lincoln.
