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.

Wouldn’t one agree the Indians from Montgomery Central had a whale of a year, in football, this past season? At KPGFootball, we don’t know how one can look at the data and arrive at any other conclusion. Looking back on it, it certainly was a fine body of work. The Indians finished the year 10-2, 5-1 in its district, and lost the two games by a combined 4 points. Montgomery Central lost its second round game in the TSSAA, Class 4A, Football State Championships to Jackson North Side 28-26 and lost to State semi-finalist, Springfield High School, 36-34 back on October 5, 2018. So what is the answer for Coach Jeff Tomlinson and his staff to keep the trajectory of the program angling ever upwardly? Keeping it going and winning with the frequency the Indians did in 2018 is never easy, after all, the Indians were 2-8 in 2017. The easiest answer is to keep developing and plugging talent into the lineup.
We are featuring a player this week, Austin Mullins, who played in one game in 2018. Now, we are talking about varsity and not junior varsity action. Our sources indicate the Mullins kid tore up JV games in 2018. Just like in the field of acting where it is commonly said, there are no small parts…just small actors, it doesn’t really matter to KPGFootball that he only got one game of varsity run. What matters to us is what did when he was presented his opportunity. Suffice it to say he didn’t squander it. In one game of action, Mullins tallied 2 tackles, both of them solos, from his defensive line slot. Mullins is 5-9 and is proportioned thickly at 200 pounds. He lists both offensive and defensive line as his positions and we could see him playing either depending on his physical development. With Mullins present frame, we believe he probably figures into the rotation for the immediate future as a defensive lineman. Mullins has to be serious this off-season, as Tomlinson’s tribe will need all hands on deck when 2019’s season rolls around. KPGFootball recommends watching this young player next season, assuming he undergoes the development we forecast as we believe the PA announcer will be saying the name Mullins a lot next season when announcing just whom made what tackle.
We are very proud to award to Class of 2022, OL/DL, Austin Mullins, 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 Austin Mullins for being our Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Area Player of the Week!
