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.
Kenwood didn’t have a great season in 2018. If you are a middle Tennessee football fan, you probably didn’t need KPGFootball to tell you that. Still, there is an embarrassment of riches when it comes to athletic talent at most of the Clarksville area high schools and Kenwood is no different.
We could talk about the big lineman at Kenwood, Demarrio Borum, or even the exceptionally quick and elusive, Kavarius Moody. We have featured each of these fine players previously on this site. Today, we would like to feature a player at a position which KPGFootball doesn’t believe it has before awarded one of its coveted Player of the Week awards. This week we recognize a long snapper.
Zach Kramer is 6-1 and weighs a robust 260 pounds which is very good size for a long snapper at the FBS, collegiate level, much less a high schooler. KPGFootball has seen Division I, long snappers as small as 5-11, 200 or so pounds.
Long snapper is a job one doesn’t really appreciate until he’s called upon to render his specialized service. Travis Meeks at Meeks & Meeks Attorneys would tell you long-snapping has this in common with practicing a general practice of law…no one likes you (usually) until your services are needed.
Zach, who is listed as a DE on the Kenwood roster, is a versatile athlete who plays both 1B and 3B on the baseball team in addition to football. Zach, time and time again, comes on and delivers both the deep snap to the punter and the shorter version for placement and a field goal attempt on the money. We honor him this week because he performs, exceptionally, a job which isn’t glamorous and which receives little fanfare but which, if messed up, has the most dire of consequences for the team and its chances for victory.
We are very proud to award to Class of 2020, Long Snapper, Zach Kramer, 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 Zach Kramer for being our Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Area Player of the Week!
