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.
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.
This weeks recipient is someone on whom it has been rather difficult to dig up any information. We have watched his highlights and have been impressed with both his apparent length and bend.
He appears to get upfield well and works down the line of scrimmage to the play very well. We would estimate him to be in the neighborhood of 6-2, 215-220 pounds.
What we do know is Kenwood has great athletes many of whom possess ideal frames. The team was 4-7 last year, losing 41-13 at Kirby in the playoff’s opening round. Kenwood is a Class 5A football team which has been 10-22 since going 8-4 and losing to Springfield in the second round of the playoffs in 2015 when Kenwood competed in the 4A classification.
Kenwood has brought in a new head man in Les Greer. Greer had been an assistant at Knoxville Catholic before a brief stint at The King’s Academy in Knoxville. Greer stepped down at TKA mid-season.
In his opening press conference, Greer noted that Keenwood “…need(ed) some organization and fundamentals…” He correctly noted the kids play hard and are excited about football. This is why we are excited both for Kenwood and players like this week’s Montgomery County Player of the Week, Javion Rivers.
We know he has the physical tools. We know he has the drive to succeed. Mix in honing Rivers’ fundamentals with the benefit of his football regimen being much more organized and we expect a break out season from the rangy, athletic combo TE-DE from Clarksville, Tennessee.
Congratulations to Javion Rivers of Kenwood High School 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!
