Lemeke is a talented young man out of the heralded Colquitt County Schools System. The 6’0 190 pounder is yet another elite athlete to come out of Moultrie in recent years.
Brockington already has 20 offers on the year and with another strong performance in his senior year, he could generate even more scholarship offers.
Coming off of a big win against long-time rival Valdosta, Brockington and the rest of the Packers are off to a hot start at 3-0. With wins against Banneker (51-0) and Dothan (62-27), the Packers will travel up to Warner Robins tonight and look to leave there 4-0.
Brockington is picking up right where he left off in his junior campaign statistically. He is averaging an eye-popping 18.3 yards per catch on the year so far, with three touchdowns.
Talk about stretching the defense.
Brockington feels good about this season, despite the delays due to Covid-19.
“I feel like we have had a slow start,” Brockington said. “Having to quarantine like we have, it slowed us down a bit. But I feel like we will still have a strong finish and a strong year overall.”
Speaking of strong, Brockington has great weight-room numbers as he is able to squat 500 pounds. Add that to a power clean of 305 pounds and a bench of 260.
Someone has certainly been eating their Wheetie’s.
Asked what he feels the keys are to this season, Brockington had a few things to say. “The key to our offensive game plan is our wideouts. I believe that we have the best group of wideouts in the state.”
With the defense holding Valdosta to just ten points, he may have a case against their talented wideout group.
To match that strength, Brockington show his versatility, as he is playing on both sides o the ball this year.
“I feel like my abilities help me stand out,” Brockington said. “My explosiveness, quickness and speed help me on both sides of the ball.”
As a junior, Brockington hauled in 53 catches on the year. Those 53 catches amounted to 921 yards receiving; over 17 yards per catch. He also added an impressive 13 touchdowns.
Brockington carries himself like a true leader and is a very respectful young man. Character is important and I could tell he has great character, just in chatting with him.
I asked Coach Josh Crawford to tell me about Brockington and he had high praise to give for the senior wideout.
“What hasn’t been said about Lemeke Brockington,” Crawford said. “I have been very fortunate to coach some gifted athletes; he may be the best. He is a great player, but he is also a tremendous person. His skillset on the field has made him a highly sought after prospect. He is a game changer and a guy you want to get the ball to when it matters.”
High praise from a phenomenal coach.
Brockington also has the juice off the field, as he sports a 3.6 GPA in the classroom.
Tremendous person. Tremendous student. Tremendous athlete. Only up from here!
Brockington is currently committed to the Minnesota Golden Gophers. He announced his commitment in April of this year.
