Well, I, regrettably, have to publish the Meeks & Meeks Award a few days early, this week, as I will be covering a Future Stars Alumni Combine in New Albany, Indiana Sunday. I figure better early than late. We here at Kentucky Prep Gridiron both have and continue to cover Clarksville, Tennessee talent as part of our 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 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.
This week’s Montgomery Count Player of the Week is a road-grading offensive lineman with whom I have been impressed for years. Connor Huff with the Class 6A Rossview High School Hawks, is a 6-0, 293 pound offensive guard who doesn’t have the photo-typical length some college teams prefer, but has the nasty disposition all teams desire up-front. Huff graded out last season at 89% by the Hawks coaching staff and that is really a testament to his outstanding play, as position coaches are nit-picky and grading out at that level is really hard. Connor must have been doing something right last season as the Hawks gained 2,800 yards rushing last season.
Connor has been described by his HC at Rossview, Todd Hood, as a…smart and physical player that created gaps in the defense for the backs. Hood went on to tell me Connor,…makes very few mistakes, and understands defenses and their fronts. Hood went on to describe Huff as someone who is equally a leader both in school and on the field. Connor broke his collar bone in game seven last season which has slowed his physical progression making his strength levels not what they would have been without his physical set-back. In spite of injury, Connor is still back squatting 460 pounds, pulling 550 (dead-lift), and power-cleaning 245, demonstrating power, explosion, and the all important good hips and core. Connor is receiving interest from Tennessee Tech, UT Martin and has been invited to Junior Day at the University of Louisville. As for his perceived lack of length, one FCS coach said about Connor, if he is out there kicking every one’s tail, why do I care what height he is? Good point!
We are very proud to award to Class of 2019 OL, Connor Huff, of Rossview High School, this week’s distinction as the Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Player of the Week and continue 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 Clarksville, Tennessee. Congratulations to Connor Huff for being our Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Player of the Week!
