On Monday, MIC schools joined together and encouraged schools across the state to turn their football stadium lights on at 7 p.m. to honor Loggan.
Hundreds of schools across the state will be turning on their football stadium lights at exactly 7:00pm, “kickoff time” tonight in memory of our athletic director Paul Loggan. Please hold Kathy, Michael, Will, and Sami in your hearts. #Paulstrong pic.twitter.com/o5Tt4LM2An

Center Grove Athletic Director Jon Zwitt has know Loggan since 1988, and when the MIC was formed eight years later, they developed a closer relationship. In fact, Zwitt and Loggan were two of only three athletic directors remaining from the original group that started the conference.

Girls track and cross country coach Wes Dodson knew Loggan long before he started coaching. Loggan was his own coach when Dodson was a student at North Central.
“Mr. Loggan was my favorite teacher. He was my assistant wrestling coach during high school and my weights coach. He always inspired me to be my best and always made class fun,” Dodson said. “He always loved North Central and the kids that represented the school. I always enjoyed seeing him at the meets since I became a coach. It was always great to see him and get the opportunity to see how he was doing.”
Loggan’s impact could be seen across social media on Monday night, as schools across the state — both high school and college — posted their tributes to him.
Tonight, we join with all MIC schools and schools around the state in honoring North Central Athletic Director Paul Loggan, who lost his battle with COVID-19 this weekend. #LightsforLoggan pic.twitter.com/maBv4JqM6b
