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. This week, we decided we should recognize an entire team and its coach, Josh Robbins. 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.

This week we are featuring the Fort Campbell Falcons and its 2nd year head man, Josh Robbins. Fort Campbell High School is located in, nearby, Oak Grove, Kentucky. Now, Oak Grove and Clarksville are neighbors. By neighbors, I mean they have practically grown together, making it nearly impossible to determine where one city stops and the other begins going down 41-A. In the not too distant past, the Falcons of Fort Campbell enjoyed an unprecedented run of success, winning the class 2A, Kentucky State Football Championships in 2007, 2008,and 2009. Over that period of time, the program went a combined 42-3. It has been difficult sledding since Sean Berner left, at the end of the 2012 football season, the Falcons having gone 14-41 over that time frame.
Last year, the Fort Campbell Falcons, under first year head coach Josh Robbins, opened the year an 18-12 winner against Marshall County High School. So far so good. Fort Campbell would win only one more game in route to finishing 2-8. Now a team which gained 1,421 yards rushing all season, has now graduated 1,226 of those ground gains, with Denoris Buchanan (873 yards) and Julian Roberts (353 yards) both being lost to graduation. Folks, that is over 86% of your yards from scrimmage on a team which only threw for 557 yards last year.
I got an opportunity to visit with Coach Robbins at the Blue-Grey All American Combine at Pope John Paul II High School in Hendersonville, Tennessee. He brought so many players hungry to both learn and compete they had to load up the old team bus. In talking with Coach Robbins and his staff, they are fired up about the future and the young talent coming up into the program. They have a fire about them and an optimism which I found inspiring and refreshing. They also had some athletes at the combine who were both fast and athletic, which bodes well for the Falcon’s future and prospects going forward. Based on this, I am quite proud to award to coach Josh Robbins, the Meeks and Meeks, Attorneys, Clarksville area, team of the week with a special salutation to him personally. We, here at KPGFootball, are equally excited about what the upcoming season brings for your team and you and will be here to cover it every step of the way.
We are very proud to award to head coach Josh Robbins and his Fort Campbell Falcons this week’s recognition as the Meeks & Meeks, Attorneys, Montgomery County Team 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!
