After 120 minutes of impossible tension, after a journey of 6,000 miles, after a game that had lasted a month, there was one more run to make. So he ran. Away from the last vestiges of resistance Boca Juniors could muster, away from all the turmoil and strife that had enveloped the final of the 2018 Copa Libertadores, and into the wide green expanse of Santiago Bernabéu, toward the unguarded goal, toward a place in eternity.

Check out the hurry-up and beat-the-clock drill Logan must sweat out this weekend for a doubleheader in Colorado and Ohio. Logan will be no different Saturday than any working mom or dad who has ever mainlined caffeine to combat sleep deprivation, chasing the next available plane, train and automobile to catch a piano recital or attend a youth swim meet while also fulfilling work obligations for an out-of-town meeting. “I wish could sleep on airplanes. But I’ve never learned,” Logan said. “I can sort of dose off for a few minutes, but I always wake up.” Cherry Creek is scheduled to kick off in Mile High at 2:30 p.m. against Valor Christian for the Class 5A state championship, with Logan prowling the sideline for the Bruins.
