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 have interests located in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Hopkinsville and Clarksville comprise one metropolitan area in spite of one city being in Kentucky and the second lying just across the Tennessee state line.
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, Wills & Estates to civil and criminal matters in General Sessions.
Regardless of your legal needs, you have a friend at Meeks & Meeks who will protect your rights and guard your best interest. Give them a call today.
It is rather fortuitous we awarded this to Denarius Barnes of Hopkinsville just last week. Red Barnes and his Tigers from Hopkinsville, Kentucky open on the road tonight in Clarksville, Tennessee against new Coach Les Greer and his Kenwood Knights.
It is literally anyone’s guess how the Knights are going to take to Coach Greer and how well they will perform for him. We can tell you this, Les Greer can coach him some football and if the Clarksville boys buy-in, they will have the athletes to be quite good this or any year.
Kenwood beat Christian County (Class 5A) in a scrimmage at Fortera Stadium just last Friday night. Does this mean Kenwood is legit? Does this mean the Colonels from Christian County are going to struggle? The problem with preseason scrimmages is we don’t know exactly what it means.
Players get a new lease on life and the lineup under new coaching staffs. One of those needs to be Justin Bair, who grew up in Clarksville playing Junior Pro Football on the same team (Packers) as Kenwood’s superstar Kavarius Moody.
We have seen Bair play since he was a little kid. He has never been shy about hitting anyone. He has never been short on either toughness or aggression.
The Tigers of Hopkinsville, a Kentucky Class 4A power with three Kentucky Football titles on its résumé (1940, 1965, 1966) and numerous runners-up (1984, 1996, 1997), figure to be a stern test for the Knights. For Coach Greer’s charges to stand a chance at the upset, they will need a big game from players like Justin Bair.
We know Justin has it in him. We’ve seen it. It’s time to let the beast out, son…
Congratulations to Kenwood High School’s Justin Bair for being chosen our Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Area Player of the Week! Join us next week as we award this to another worthy recipient.
This is Fletcher Long, reporting for KPGFootball, reminding you to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE!
