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. 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. If you have a problem, they have a solution. If you feel like you’re drowning, they are the life raft. Call them at 931.645.3888 or just drop by 137 Franklin Street in Clarksville, Tennessee 37040.
We don’t get the privilege of featuring too many freshmen in our series recognizing outstanding Friday night performers each week. One reason for this is there aren’t too many freshmen performing on Friday night. However, both more and more and year after year, freshmen are finding they are able and (many times) ready to contribute to the Varsity football team even during the freshman year. One of those has to be among the very best freshmen in the area and we are speaking of strong safety, Logan Sykes, from Montgomery Central.
We, at KPGFootball, are accustomed to hearing that every freshman in the varsity lineup is worth one loss per to the team. Well, Montgomery Central is enjoying unprecedented success starting a freshman at strong safety. After all, the Indians are 9-1, 5-1 in its region, heading into a visit from 8-2 Hardin County in round one of the TSSAA playoffs. All Sykes has contributed to the Indians’ defense this year has been around 55 tackles and an interception. Sykes had a six tackle effort Friday night in the Indians 34-12 victory over White House Heritage. Logan is 6-0, weighs 155 pounds, runs a 5.2 second 40 yard dash and pro-shuttles a respectable 4.6 seconds. With some important offseason strength work before his sophomore season, which should see both his 205 pound back squat and 165 pound power-clean exponentially rise, his straight-line and change-of-direction speed numbers will substantially improve. Either way, Logan Sykes, both this week against White House Heritage, and (truthfully) throughout the 2018 regular season, has shown he is a young player to be reckoned with going forward.
We are very proud to award to Class of 2022, SS/QB, Logan Sykes, 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 Logan Sykes for being our Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Area Player of the Week!
