It is not every day you see two-way players who are WR on the offensive side and DL on the defensive side. I mean, think about that a second; how many young players have the speed to play WR and the substance to be deployed as a down-lineman defensively? Talk about get off! When your defensive linemen are wide-receivers for your offense, that almost seems unfair to the OL trying to stem his up-field rush into the offensive backfield. That was exactly the case with two way, sophomore star, Caden Ward.
First of all, one would have to have been comatose to not know the Indians from Cunningham, Tennessee had one of their finer squads in program history in 2018. Going 10-2, with both losses being by a razor thin margin (four or so points from undefeated and marching on), isn’t an every year achievement for the vast majority of programs. It took Ward four or so games to work his way into the rotation; but, when he got there, he performed.
Over an eight game stretch to close out 2018; Ward, defensively, had 20 tackles. He also tallied a QB sack, caused four fumbles, and gave the home folks plenty to which to look forward as he returns for his junior year in the Fall of 2019. Ward has elite length for either DL or WR at 6-4 and how he fills out his presently slight, 180 pound frame, is going to have a lot to do with where he primarily deploys in the future for the Indians. This is a kid whom might thicken into a TE/DE combo going forward. However he develops, Ward has shown the Indian tribe that he is one brave omnipresently ready for warfare.
We are very proud to award to Class of 2021, WR/DL, Cayden Ward, 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.
