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 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.

As either a lead blocker, rushing the football from the full back slot, or even aligned in the backfield as the only back in a one back set, Lakendriez Sanders, a 5-10 and 220 pound, Class of 2020 prospect, bullied, battered, and absolutely scorched White House High School this past Thursday evening. With the win, the Indians from Cunningham, Tennessee have moved its record to 8-1 on the year, assured itself a lofty seeding in the TSSAA Football playoffs, and, with only hapless and winless White House Heritage remaining, assured itself of entering the playoffs with a 9-1 regular season record. Against one of the more storied football programs in Tennessee High School Football history in White House, Sanders ripped off numerous long runs from scrimmage and even scored a TD in route to his Indians winning the ball game 34-23.
Now when analyzing just why Lakendriez Sanders has been so productive on the year his offseason work must be largely credited. Sanders has been timed in the 40 yard dash as low as 4.97 seconds which is supported by the fact the young man dead lifts 375 pounds and power cleans 205, to go along with his 400 pound back squat. As for prying the football from his grasp as defenders tackling Sanders are want to do, the Junior in high school also reports a bench press of 265 pounds to go along with his power numbers in the other listed lifts. Assuming Sanders is some sort of offensive lineman aligned in the backfield merely to lead the way for the smaller backs slotted behind him would be a mistake, however. Sanders, though as large as many high school offensive guards, is a guy who has demonstrated plenty of power, quick-twitch straight line and change of direction speed, balance, and agility this season, and particularly against White House High School this past Thursday night. Sanders is just one of the reasons Montgomery Central is enjoying one of its finest years in memory.
We are very proud to award to Class of 2020, FB/MLB, Lakendriez Sanders, 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 Michael Kennedy for being our Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Area Player of the Week!
