CHS’ Ford Cooper is this week’s Montgomery County POW

This week's Meeks and Meeks Montgomery County Player of the Week is...

As you are aware, we both have and continue to cover Clarksville, Tennessee talent, and talent from the Clarksville metropolitan area, as part of our coverage largely because we are principally based in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Hopkinsville and Clarksville comprise one metropolitan area in spite of one city being in Kentucky and the second laying just across the Tennessee state line. Well, we are proud to have partnered with the law firm of Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys to feature a weekly article promoting a Clarksville-Montgomery County area prep football player.

Last year, for Clarksville High School, Class of 2019 QB, Ford Cooper had to split the reps with Class of 2018, Skyler Luna. Luna seemed to be more of the sprint out, press the edge, run first guy for the Wildcats as the extremely athletic Luna, at 5-10 and weighing 160 pounds was built for that type of game play. Cooper is 6-0 and weighs 190 pounds and, defensively, is deployed at OLB so he is a more polished passer better able to drop, set up, and deliver the ball down the field. Cooper is a specimen, particularly for the QB position, as he bench presses 225 pounds, squats 370, and power cleans 265. The Wildcats lost Malik Santiago and Bobby Jackson as down-field targets but will have superstar, Joshua Watch, returning. Watch should get some help from rising sophomore Michael Kennedy, whom we have before featured and who may be one of the most athletic kids in the 931. Cooper performed very well directing, at the very least, the passing attack as CHS lost in the semis of a prestigious Sevens tournament at Murfressboro Riverdale to Shelbyville Central on the very last play. Kentucky Prep Gridiron looks for Ford Cooper to have one heck of a year in 2018.

Congratulations to Ford Cooper for being our Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Area Player of the Week!
