Logan Woodside, shatters UT records but still has one big goal to accomplish

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) -

For Toledo football fans, Logan Woodside has become a household name.

Last year, Woodside's 45 touchdown passes not only led the nation, but also shattered the school’s single season TD pass record.

The Rockets quarterback also set a new single season passing record, throwing for over 4,100 yards.

Through it all, Woodside is humble about his accomplishments.

“I definitely, you know, had goals coming in,” Woodside said. “It’s just I’ve had the opportunities, and I think that I’ve made the most of them to make that happen.”

This season, Woodside became Toledo’s all-time career passing leader. And in last week's game against Bowling Green, he broke the lone record that was still standing by former Toledo QB Bruce Gradkowski, the career passing touchdown record.

“I definitely knew that I was close, you know, and then after the game was over he sent me the video of, you know, him kind of slamming the book down, just kind of joking,” Woodside said. “It’s been a great year, you know, for me, and I’ve looked at him as definitely a mentor for me and he’s definitely helped me in a lot of ways.”

While Woodside has personal successes in his Rocket career, there’s another goal he’s looking to achieve for the team, a MAC Championship.

But to get a chance to make that happen Western Michigan stood in the way.

On Friday morning, Woodside took the field for his final game inside the Glass Bowl and a chance to move into the MAC Championship game next week.

And on senior day, Woodside and the Rockets put themselves in a position to accomplish their goal. 

They'll play Akron on Saturday December 2 for a chance to win the MAC championship for the first time in Woodside's career and something not accomplished by the Rockets since 2004 when Woodside's mentor Bruce Gradkowski was behind center.

    BYLINE: Victoria Idoni EAST TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - This is an all too familiar scene on the roads: people getting distracted behind the wheel. April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. One month out of the year is certainly not enough to observe safer driving habits. This is something we should always keep in mind. The good news is, there are ways in which our changing culture is evolving to deal with technology and how it can both hel...
