Bleckley County junior TJ Fountain is an impressive blocker that is starting to make waves in the state. The 6’3″ 265 lbs. offensive lineman’s dominating play just recently earned him our Lineman of the Week.
“My junior year has been full of great achievements on and off the field,” the junior said.
Fountain is an impressive center prospect who gets out of his stance quickly and is aggressive with his hands at the point of attack. The junior does a good job with his pad level and shows good versatility sliding across the LOS wherever his team needs him.
“I have improved a lot in my footwork and pass pro which is a main factor at center.”
Fountain’s tenacious blocking style has not led to any schools contacting him just yet, but we suspect that his film should prove to attract D1 programs once they get a hold of it. The junior does have a visit planned up soon to UGA and has a few more cooking up soon, but nothing definitive either.
To close out the year, the junior is looking to finish strong both in recruiting and with his postseason accolades.
“My goals are to gain some college offers this year and finish out All-Region at center,” Fountain said.
Bleckley County has started off the season 4-1 and is a consensus top-10 team in Class A DI with their lone loss to the top team in Class A DII. After this Friday’s game against Westfield, the program will officially be entering region play, and they will certainly be tested in the coming weeks against programs like Dublin, and of course, Swainsboro to cap off the regular season.
The end result for Fountain and his Bleckley County team will be exciting to follow. Of course, as the season continues, it will become a lot more competitive but that will also create a lot of opportunity for the hard-blocking junior to continue to build on his recruiting resume.
