Paducah RB (’23) had an incredible night in a district game of considerable consequence
It is really hard to even describe the magnitude of the football game turned in by senior RB, Jordauyn White, this past Friday night. He will have to replicate the effort in Paris, Tennessee tonight if the Blue Tornado are to continue its rise toward the upcoming KHSAA playoffs.Fletcher W. Long, Senior Scout, KPGFootball
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 senior RB who doubles on defense who projects either place at the next level. Today we are featuring a ’23 RB from Paducah, Kentucky’s Tilghman High School named Jordauyn White.
This senior RB had a whale of a game, and against a highly regarded opponent at the right time, to come up with a primetime performance. Tilghman’s Blue Tornado, who have played a “Murderer’s Row” of a schedule, presently stand at 3-3 with a huge game against one of Tennessee’s all-time 5A football teams, in Henry County High, on the road tonight in Paris, Tennessee.
After tonight, Paducah has to finish up with Union County on the road before coming home to entertain both Webster County and Hopkinsville High. The “Blue Tornado” is battle tested and hardened and should make quite a splash in the upcoming 3A playoffs.
White’s performance this season, especially last week against Trigg County, has exceeded all reasonable expectations for his team and we fully anticipate more of the same going forward from here. How good of a year White may end up producing statistically, in the end, is anyone’s guess.
Tilghman High is located just down the road from three Paducah area Independence Bank branches, one located on 3143 Broadway, another on 2711 New Holt Road, and a third on 3312 Lone Oak Road. Get on by and visit either of these fine branches today. Discover what makes Independence Bank’s people, products, and services revolutionary in the financial services industry.
Today, instead of featuring a branch, we elected to feature an outstanding employee at one of our area branches. Today, we feature Ms. Janice Cleary who you may just encounter provided you stop by our branch on New Holt Road.
Ms. Cleary is rapidly approaching four-decades in the banking industry. Ms. Cleary is a long-time resident of Paducah and graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Kentucky Schools of Banking, National Consumer Credit School (OK), and Moebs Pricing Institute (CA).
Ms. Cleary, thank you for your incredible service to Independence Bank. Thank you for sustaining the revolution we have started in the financial services market.
To say White “went off” in the Trigg County game might be a bit understated. White carried the football only 13-times against the Wildcats.
In spite of the limited touches, White gained 166-yards on the ground, scored 4-rushing TD’s, housed a 2-pointer, and even recovered a fumble. White also caught a pass out of the backfield the toted 42-yards before being corralled.
White lead the team in yards gained rushing, carries, was among the leaders in yards receiving, and tied for the club lead in fumbles recovered. White also lead the team on the night in scoring, which after all is the name of the game in any contest where score is kept.
Most importantly, Tilghman beat a previously undefeated and highly ranked Kentucky 3A football team (Trigg County) 43-10. The “Blue Tornado” travel to Paris, Tennessee to play Henry County High tonight before finishing on the road at Union County before home dates with Webster County and Hopkinsville High.
Congratulations to Jordauyn White for his “Revolutionary Play” against the Trigg County Wildcats and that which is to come the remainder of the ’22 season, all of which has earned this magnificent senior RB and player 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!
