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.

KPGFootball can’t even begin to tell you how important having a returning star for a punter/place-kicker really is for a high school football team looking to follow-up on its most successful season in program history. It was important enough to one of the South’s most storied college football coaches, General Robert R. Neyland, that the kicking game comprised two of his 7 Maxims to winning a football game (No. 4. Protect our kickers, our QB, our lead and our ball game. No. 6. Press the kicking game. Here is where the breaks are made).
A football coach told me once having a reliable kicking game is like finding money in the pocket of the pants you just got back from the dry-cleaning. Getting a sure three points out of a drive where a lot of high school teams are having to go for it on fourth down or hoping to pooch it inside the 10 is can be priceless on any given Friday night.
How good was Montgomery County’s Michael Lobdell last season for the Indians? Well, the 6-0, 170 pounder was good enough to be selected Region 5-4A’s Co-place kicker of the Year on the All-Region 5-4A team (with Jacob Harper, White House High School). KPGFootball would have to say that is pretty dad-gum good.
Lobell’s return, in 2019, gives the coaching staff almost a third of the team’s required performance about which it doesn’t have too much to worry. After all, it was well manned in 2018 and has a returning Regional Player of the Year both punting and kicking when Fall 2019 opens. Now MCCHS can add that Lobdell has been awarded the KPGFootball and Meeks & Meeks Attorney’s Montgomery County Player of the Week. It seemed only just to add our award to a growing list of awards being bestowed on this particular player.
Congratulations to Michael Lobdell, Class of 2020, P/PK, for being our Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Area Player of the Week!
This is F.W. Long reporting for KPGFootball and reminding you to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE!
