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.
Independence Bank has a goal of achieving everyday excellence, and this week we are focusing on a player who set the Kentucky football world ablaze over the course of his junior season and figures to be prominently in the Mr. Football race heading into his senior year. This week we will honor Decker Renfrow, Class of ’23, from Daviess County High School.
Refrow’s performance exceeded reasonable expectations in 2021 and he will be heavily counted on heading into a senior season where the team’s primetime QB, Joe Humphreys, and one of his top targets, Max Dees (75-receptions, 1,163-yards receiving, and 9-TDs), have both departed for college football. Daviess County High School is located just minutes away from three Owensboro, Independence Bank branches.
One of the branches is located on 2425 Frederica Street. There is a second one on 2465 West Parrish Avenue. There is a third one on 3228 KY-54.
Get on by and see one of those fine branches today. Discover what makes Independence Bank’s people, products, and services revolutionary in the financial services industry.
Decker Renfrow is a 6-0, 165-pound superstar who plays both WR and FS and finds a way to contribute both places in spite of his obvious importance to the offense. Renfrow is already being doggedly pursued and made a recent visit to Murray State on its “Junior Day.”
Renfrow sports a 4.0 GPA and has a registered 24 on his ACT. This makes him “a take” at programs from the Ivy League, to Division I, to the near-Ivys. His 4.49 registered 40-yard dash time is also mighty appealing.
Now when it comes to Friday night production, we aren’t sure for what you are looking if you take issue with what he contributed a year ago. Renfrow caught 60-aerials for 1,064-yards receiving and led the team, Dees included, with 10-TDs. Renfrow was second in number of receptions and yards-receiving, while being 1st in TDs through the air. He was 4th in offensive scoring.
Defensively, Renfrow’s PT was much more sparing. We looked and it appeared he had in the neighborhood of 5-tackles all season. However, in spite of his limited defensive deployment, the part-time FS forced two fumbles to be toward the top of that all-important statistical category.
Congratulations to Decker Renfrow, both for his Revolutionary Play in 2021 and that which is to come in 2022, all of which has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, our friends at Independence Bank.
This is Coach HB Lyon, reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron and reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT!
