Lajuan McAdoo (@mcadoo_lajuan on Twitter) from @MNHHS_Football is the @1776Bank ‘Revolutionary Player of the Week.’ @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps

There is no better time than the present to anoint another Independence Bank player of the week. Independence Bank is proud to sponsor a weekly article highlighting players in the areas where Independence Bank flourishes who embody the same type of revolutionary service to their respective football teams which has made Independence Bank unique and special in the banking industry. 

Today we honor ’23 RB, Lajuan McAdoo, from Madisonville North-Hopkins High School. McAdoo’s North-Hopkins High  is not too far from a couple of famous branches in the Independence Bank family. 

There is a branch located on 1776 North Main Street and another one on 629 East Center Street. Of course, both branches are located in or around the Madisonville, Kentucky community.

Lajuan McAdoo is a player who has won this very award twice previously. He first won it in January of ’20 and again on October 22, 2021.

We unabashedly award it to him now a third time and why not? He is sure to figure into both All-State contention entering his senior year in high school if not the “Mr. Football” race for the Fall of ’22.

Lajuan, who could use some help gaining more social media traction and putting together some Hudl highlights, is certainly a prime-time performer around the first-district of the 4A classification. His junior numbers were impressive for a player who played in only 10-games.

McAdoo gained 1,178-yards from scrimmage in 191-carries over the 10-games. He led his ball club in carries, yards from scrimmage, rushing TDs (11), and offensive scoring.

McAdoo participated sparsely on defense as a junior. However, when so deployed, he always seemed to make a big play.

Consider he had only five (5) tackles. One (1) of the tackles was a TFL. Two (2) more were QB-sacks. Now that is coming up big-time when your number gets called.

We appreciate performers who shoulder much of the burden on offense like McAdoo did in ’21. We also appreciate the guys who have limited opportunities but make the most of them like McAdoo did on defense in ’21.

Congratulations to Lujaun McAdoo for his Revolutionary Play which has earned this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky…your friends at Independence Bank.
