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 area 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. Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys is a full service law firm covering all areas within the realm of general practice from domestic to criminal defense, contracts to malpractice, Will & Estates to civil and criminal matters in General Sessions.

Damari Ussery, a Class of 2020 defensive backfield prospect, has been described as having the size, range, physicality, and leadership skills that many college coaches hunt. We didn’t make this up, it was published in an article about Ussery on a site called College Bound Athletics. The article, which we have linked herein, goes on to relate that “Ussery should be a name to place himself on the right path to play college football in the 2020 year.”
KPGFootball can find no fault with what that publication related. Neither can Meeks & Meeks Attorneys. Our Montgomery County Player of the Week is 6-0 and weighs 185 pounds, so size is a plus, especially where he can play in the defensive back-four.
Ussery runs the 40 in 4.74 it is reported, short-shuttles in 4.64 seconds, has a 24 inch vertical, benches 250, and squats 365-pounds. These numbers are solid but don’t knock you to the floor. However, what his coach says about him…well, that’s another matter in and of itself.
In the article which we have above linked, Rob Gallowitz, an assistant coach at Clarksville High School remarked that “Damari has been a big leader for our program over the past couple of years. He never misses in the weight room, leads by example for the younger kids, and is looked at as one of the top playmakers in our program…Damari is a great team guy who has a bright future ahead of him.”
We certainly agree with Coach Gallowitz’s assessment. In life and football, it is often the intangibles like leadership, courage, being an example for the younger kids, being a playmaker, which end up drawing distinction between “ordinary” and “extraordinary.” Extraordinary players play in college. Extraordinary players get awarded Players of the Week awards.
Congratulations to Damari Ussery, Class of 2020, SS/CB, for being our Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Area Player of the Week!
This is F.W. Long reporting for KPGFootball and reminding you to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE!
