Carson Clark is a rising sophomore we believe will heavily contribute to the bottom line this coming Fall @CarsonClark08 @CooperFootball @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @840WHAS @KyHighFootball

Cooper High Jaguars

’27 TE, MLB has the tools required to be a star at the HS level

Carson Clark plays for Cooper High. Cooper High is fresh off a ’23 run to the 5A Finals and have many key pieces back to make another run. Unfortunately for Randy Borchers’ bunch, the team which won the title, Bowling Green Senior High, can say the same. One thing for which Jaguars opponents will not be able to plan are the young guys who will come on the varsity roster prepared to compete for PT. Young guys, like Carson Clark, for instance.

Union, KY: We wrote a feature about Kalen “Jaws” Washington a little more than a month ago. Jaws is a ’25 RB who leads one of the commonwealth’s more accomplished 6A rosters and is a nationally ranked college prospect at his position.

We aren’t the top of the Kentucky HS football food chain because we can find and report on Kalen “Jaws” Washington. He is firmly in the public eye. All you have to do is look. You literally can’t miss him.

We are the very best at what we do because we have been reporting on Washington for five to six years. We knew about him before anyone else. We knew he would be a star before he had taken a varsity snap.

That is what makes us KPGFootball. That is why you read and follow us.

Carson Clark is probably a name with which you aren’t too familiar, unless you are a Cooper High fan. Clark is a ’27 prospect who enters his sophomore year coming off a season which didn’t see him get any varsity burn.

That doesn’t mean he will be sidelined in ’24. In fact, if he doesn’t play and produce substantially, we will be very surprised.

First of all, Clark passes the “eye test.” Clark is 6’1,” and weighs a well put together 205-pounds.

Secondly, Clark is a versatile and skilled athlete. Clark competes in Wrestling and Track & Field, in addition to Football.

Finally, Clark is really, really smart. Clark carries a 4.0-GPA.

All of these attributes will contribute to making him a solid, varsity player for one of 5A’s better football programs competing in the KHSAA presently. Clark plays TE and LB. He is well built for either or both.

It is easier for young guys to crack the lineup on defense. You can always align a young end or OLB on defense and tell him to keep his outside arm free and track and pursue the football from the backfield to the sideline.

TE, on the other hand, requires knowledge of the plays, alignments, and offensive schemes.

We don’t know where Clark will make his debut. He could debut as a two-way guy, though that isn’t common for young players on 5A rosters which play for titles and register 12-3 worksheets.

Wherever he aligns, we believe we will be seeing much more from Mr. Clark come the fall of ’24. When he is a big star, remember from where you first heard his name!

Same place you first heard of Kalen “Jaws” Washington…
