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.

This weeks recipient would be nicknamed Mr. Excitement were that nickname available. Would hate to rip-off the late James Brown, the Godfather of Soul. That aside, when you watch the highlight film of Joshua Watch what strikes one most about the 6-0, 185 pound athlete is how much excitement he brings to football games (for Wildcat fans especially) and how many ways he impacts games. Last year, for the Class 5A football team located in the city nick-named the Queen of the Cumberland, Watch scored on kick-off returns, punt returners, through the air either in the slot or split wide, and on jet sweeps from the slot alignment. I am not sure of Watch’s exact speed, but he has got to be fast unless Hudl has found a way to doctor the film. From what I saw, when Joshua pulls even, he’s leavin!
Joshua Watch is not merely fast, as he exhibited the ability to catch the ball at the apex of his, well-timed, jump, in his hands and away from his body. Joshua is elusive in the open filed, one on one with would-be tacklers, and when he either gains the edge or pulls even with back-fours; he easily gains separation. At corner back he is tough in coverage who, on one highlight, came from nowhere to tackle a receiver who had broken into the open field with nothing but the end zone in front of him. He saved a touchdown there and, I mean, literally came out of nowhere. Joshua will also come up and lay the wood on ball carriers in the run game. As a prospect, Joshua is gaining offers, seemingly every-day, with schools clamoring for his services all over the country. In the recruiting world, we call that blowing up and Joshua has certainly done it.
We are very proud to award to Class of 2019, athlete, Joshua Watch 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 Joshua Watch for being our Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Area Player of the Week!
