Utah State quarterback Logan Bonner is saying goodbye.
A foot injury has ended his season — and his time at USU.
“Aggie Nation, I want to say thank you for giving this Texas boy a chance to represent this university and welcoming me into your city with open arms,” Bonner said in a statement he shared on social media. “Sadly my time at USU has come to an end with a season ending injury.”
Bonner followed head coach Blake Anderson from Arkansas State to Cache Valley. The quarterback set a school record with 36 touchdown passes last season as he led the Aggies to their first-ever Mountain West Conference championship.
Coming back from an injury that knocked him out of Utah State’s bowl game, Bonner had struggled to find that same form this season in Logan. He was 62-for-110 passing for six touchdowns and eight interceptions before going down with the injury.
Junior Cooper Legas started in Bonner’s place Thursday night against BYU.
“I have given my heart and soul into this program, but now it’s time to give that energy to the program in a different way,” Bonner’s statement continued. “To my teammates, coaches, the entire football staff, from strength to trainers to equipment, and to everyone I talk to every day — I love each and every one of you.
“I am so sorry for how things have ended but I truly have no regrets.”
