A lot of the Clarksville area teams were off Friday night as it was Fall Break. A team which was not only on but had a home game against one of its toughest opponents on the year, Middle Tennessee Christian School, was the Clarksville Academy. MTCS entered the game 6-1 and had beaten CA in a rout in Murfreesboro, Tennessee a year ago 51-22. However, make no mistake about this, Coach JD Sellars has his Cougars firing on every cylinder in this his second season at the helm. The Cougars have made tremendous strides, this Fall, and entered this year’s home game with MTCS 5-2 on the year and assured of both a playoff birth and a first round home game. Though the Cougars lost the game, they acquitted themselves much better this year than last, losing a heart breaker to one of the best teams in its division, 40-34. The game ran the record of MTCS to 7-1 on the year, with its only loss being by one point to Mt. Juliet Christian Academy, 21-20. The loss left CA 5-3 but with a district mark of 3-1. CA will finish up this season at home against Nashville Christian which beat it 66-14 in Nashville in 2017 but which was ravaged by graduation and which is 2-6 on the year and a winnable game for the Cougars for sure, before finishing the regular season on the road at Davidson Academy. DA is 8-0 on the year and beat CA a year ago 61-7.
Against MTCS, the Cougars leaned once again on its four-year starter and APSU commitment, Bryce Robinson and the gritty and tough, dual-threat, QB did what he has always done when called upon, respond. Robinson completed 13 of his 25 passing attempts against MTCS for 254 yards passing and two passing TDs. The 5-11 and 190 pounder continued his fine play on defense too. There is literally no question the tremendous strides the Academy has made visa vie its football performance from 2017 to the 2018, can be attributed to, in large part, Robinson’s contributions on both sides of the ball, at QB on offense and in the defensive, back-four, as its QB at Safety as an irrefutable reason why the Cougars are so much better this year than last.
We are very proud to award to Class of 2019, QB/DB, Bryce Robinson this week’s distinction as the Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Player of the Week. KPGFootball continues to look forward to our partnership with Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys as we both continue to publicize and promote all of the fine young football players in and around Clarksville, Tennessee. Congratulations to Michael Kennedy for being our Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Area Player of the Week!
