William Long, a 2021 prospect who is being recruited as a fullback/defensive lineman/linebacker prospect, but who is playing offensive center this year for his Hopkinsville Tigers in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, is coming off an extraordinary performance. The Tigers, who were very badly in need of a district win, were able to come through on the road in Murray, Kentucky against Calloway County. The Tigers gained 280 rushing yards, without the credible threat of the pass (completed one pass for 4 yards), behind an offensive line anchored by William Long and for whom he is charged with making both the run-blocking and pass-protection calls. With the game very much in doubt, Long came up to the line of scrimmage, on a crucial third down, and checked the play from the coach’s play-call to a QB sneak right behind him. QB, Ellis Dunn, took the snap and followed William Long down the field for 45 yards and a TD which put the game out of reach. In a hand-full of snaps defensively, Long also contributed both a QB sack and a QB pressure. William Long, who attended our Mountain All-State Combine this past summer has solidified himself as the premier offensive center on his side of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and is having, by all accounts, an All-State caliber year
