Kelley, Kennedy and Williams from Clarksville on Team Tennessee Future Stars

Evan Kelley, 2022 QB/LB, 6'0" 190
Kamari Williams, Clarksville NE, Tennessee Future Star

Clarksville Tennessee had three players make the Future Stars Team Tennessee.  The first who made the Team for the 7th grade was Evan Kelley.  Really not a surprise he made the squad but was a surprise he didn’t make it as a QB.  Kelley was selected to the team as LB.  He is a physical, hard-hitting LB who will certainly and eventually have a Linebacker’s frame, but it goes to show how a non-contact combine, throwing to receivers of different capabilities is an imperfect system for selecting players, especially skills.

Kamari Williams made the team too for the Eighth Grade Team Tennessee out of NorthEast Middle School and is incorrectly identified in the paperwork as being a Nashville kid.  In a little bit of a surprise to maybe only Kamari Williams himself, Kamari made the team as a DB as opposed to what he listed as his primary position, RB.  Kentucky Prep Gridiron correctly noted he played safety in last year’s game and played it very well.  Type-casting is hard to escape.  Oh well, congratulations Kamari on being a 2X Future Star.

Another 2X Future Star is Michael Kennedy out of Clarksville Academy.  Michael made the 8th grade team as a DB.  Michael is a freak athlete whom has before posted on FaceBook video of him jumping from out of a standard swimming pool and onto the deck and landing cleanly on his feet.  Think about that for a moment…are you serious?  Kennedy played RB and Receiver for the Academy this past season but is slated to attend Clarksville High School according to sources who related this information to Kentucky Prep Gridiron.
