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. 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.
For the vast majority of teams in the coverage area of KPGFootball, the players we feature are either about to embark on getting prepared for 2019’s football season, or practicing for basketball. Of course, there are the lucky few who are getting prepared to play, either in Tennessee or Kentucky, for State Football Championships. After the coming weekend, our football memories from 2018 will be tidied up with a festive bow and laid beneath our collective Christmas tree of memories. If you are fans of our Players of the Week segments, never fear; our most viewed segments are the off-season (rather than in-season) pieces anyway. We aren’t going anywhere. We cover football year-round, around here. One of the most exciting things we do is discover, before anyone else, players who may have flown under the radar, or been underclassmen, but who will emerge as stars in the upcoming season or seasons, as the case may be. One such player is Class of 2022, DE/TE, LaMauri Kincaid.
There is a lot of uncertainty at present around the future of Northwest High School football occasioned by the resignation, at the season’s conclusion, of Head Coach, Vernon Wright. Coach Wright had prepped at Northwest High School, when he played, and had just concluded his fifth season at the helm when he announce he would resign to spend more time with his family and children. Candidates for the job will find Wright left better athletes on the cupboard shelves than what one might expect to find at a school which just finished 2-8. Northwest graduated 20 seniors from off the 2017 roster and had some key injuries to its remainder men this year making them struggle moreso than they otherwise would have. There are some kids on the roster which have been star football players since junior pro football and whom we know to have both great ability and athleticism, if mentored well, largely because KPGFootball has been watching these kids play the game of football since they were six years old. One of those is LaMauri Kincaid.
Kincaid is a 6-1 and 190 pound freshman (Class of 2022) who will have a break out season, next year, as a sophomore. LaMauri played in 8 games this past season, though only a frosh, largely on special teams, and lists DE/TE as his primary positions of deployment. Kincaid has quick get-off and bend making him able to get under a tackle’s hands and reek havoc on an upfield pass rush while possessing the speed, frame, length, and size to contain the sweep and set the edge where called upon. LaMauri’s father, Rod Taylor, was a star player on some very good Northeast High School teams, playing running-back, so Kincaid’s being able to run is an indication of an acorn falling in close proximity to its tree.
Northwest will count heavily next year on QB, Gabriel Siebert (above pictured), Class of 2020 (6-0, 185), who is one of Tennessee’s most coveted high school baseball prospects. Seibert will have some targets too as both Kincaid (6-1, 190 TE) and rangy Isaiah Farrior (6-4, 170 WR) will both be hunting down-field opportunities next year. With another year of improvement and the height and athleticism the Vikings can send down the field, Siebert is likely to greatly improve 2018’s 69 completions, in 157 attempts, for 1,179 passing yards and 11 passing TDs (against 13 thrown interceptions, 58.9 QB Rating) from this past season. One thing KPGFootball knows for sure, with the right hire this is a program with athletes already on the roster which could make quite an improvement next year. Look out for LaMauri Kincaid in 2019! You heard it here first.
On behalf of Meeks and Meeks, attorneys, and in conjunction with KPGFootball we are very proud to award to Class of 2022, DE/TE, LaMauri Kincaid, 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 LaMauri Kincaid for being our Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Area Player of the Week!
