NorthEast’s Elijah Leaupepe (@LeaupepeElijah) is the Meeks and Meeks, Montgomery County POW

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.

Elijah Leaupepe

We aren’t trying to hurt anyone’s feelings here, so my apologies to the scads of other high schools in Tennessee’s fifth largest city. That being said, no team comes off the bus any more impressively than the Eagles from Northeast High School.

We believe if people could put aside partisanship, a brief moment and be honest, they would have to admit an abundance of athletes from the River City either have or do attend NorthEast High School. The list of former greats to have been Eagles is both long and illustrious, and a bit longer and more illustrious than most of the area’s other programs.

Well, NorthEast has another rising star both on its roster and in its Class of 2021, to go along with Kamari Williams (a player we have featured multiple times and whose frame and athleticism we just love), and his name is difficult to spell but one which you should make every effort to remember. Elijah Leaupepe, the pronunciation of which we wouldn’t dare attempt, is a 6-2 and 220 pound MLB/TE. Leaupepe only played in 5 games as a sophomore with most of the production occurring on defense. However, he still made his presence felt.

Elijah, in 5 games, logged 37 tackles, 24 of which were solos. Leaupepe also registered 14 tackles behind the line of scrimmage and a QB sack. Meaning…this is a MLB who played down-hill, and aggressively, particularly as a run-stopper. As Leaupepe matures and gains valuable reps, both offensively and defensively, we expect he will develop as a down-field target, over the middle, for QB, J’lin Powell this next season to go along with what he brings to the table QBing the defense from his MLB-post.

We are very proud to award to Class of 2021, MLB/TE, Elijah Leaupepe 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 Elijah Leaupepefor being our Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Area Player of the Week!
