The rosters for the 13th annual Tennessee East-West All-Star Classic were announced last week, revealing that Clarksville offensive lineman Blake Hundley has been named to the West team.
“It’s a big achievement,” Hundley said. “Only 60 seniors every year get it. I was happy and I feel blessed that I got to do that. It’s exciting for sure.
“I put good tape up consistently in games. I come into practice every day and worked my butt off. I think that you can put as much film up as possible, but what you do behind closed doors is really what’s going to get you places. What I’m doing in the weight room, and what I do when no one’s looking is why I got that spot and not really because of tape, but that’s a plus for sure.”
Hundley was the only player from Montgomery County named to the team. He has helped lead the Wildcats (8-4, 5-2 Region 7-5A) to the second round of the TSSAA postseason. Hundley has offers from South Carolina, Kansas, Yale, Richmond, Austin Peay and UT-Martin and is a three-star prospect, according to 247Sports.
“He’s just a tough kid,” said Clarksville coach Isaac Shelby. “Good ballplayer. He’s coachable. It’s something he deserves for sure. We had a few kids nominated, and he was selected. We’re proud of him.”
The 6-foot-3 guard will represent the West on Friday, Dec. 13 at Austin Peay’s Fortera Stadium.
