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.
Connor Huff is the first player of the week to be so designated twice. This is an indication of how much I like him at the guard position as a player and what kind of young man I find him to be. If there is anyone worthy of being twice honored in one month, it would be he. Also, recruiting is heating up for him and there are some coaches out there at whom I am screaming, offer him…offer him right now! In the interest of full disclosure, I count coach Todd Hood among my circle of friends in the coaching community. I will just come right out with it, in my opinion, he is the best football coach in the high school game in Clarksville. Don’t know whether that is something I am wise to say, and there are some other really good coaches in Clarksville who are doing exceptional jobs (like Chad Watson at NE, and Vernon Wright at NW) but there is a reason Hood’s ball clubs are always, seemingly, in the postseason and among the very best teams in the Clarksville area. So when Coach Hood, in chatting with me about his upcoming ball club, said I’ll tell you this, that Connor Huff is a football player, I listened.
To be completely honest, I didn’t need Coach Hood to tell me Connor Huff can play the game. I mean, I did make him a player of the week back in March. I have been on the Huff train for a long time. He is tough, comes off the ball hard and in a bad humor, plays through the whistle, keeps his feet moving, and, once he gets his vice-like hands clamped on you, there is no way out but down. Connor is a 6-1, 283 pound hammer who thrives in the run game, up front, and though he plays both tackle and guard at Rossview, figures to be a guard in college. Connor is being courted around by quite a few schools and, being a 2019 kid, I imagine someone in the area, like APSU or Murray State, will pull the trigger on this kid with an offer before the Fall campaign opens. Rossview, who plays in the 6A classification in Tennessee, will be right in the mix this next season, just like every year. With Hood at the helm and Huff clearing the way, you can count on that!
We are very proud to award to Class of 2019, offensive guard, Connor Huff 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 Connor Huff for being our Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Area Player of the Week!
