’25 LB sure passes ‘eye test’
There is a ton to love about Tucker Roth from Pleasure Ridge Park. For one thing, his 6’4,” 215-pound frame will make coach’s mouths water. Roth’s on-field production is prodigious. In three games so far, Roth has 38-tackles, 1.5 TFL’s, 2-sacks, and has blocked three (3) kicks. This kid is getting some looks from the “Ancient 8” (Ivy League) and the 3.62 GPA would be why. He is also being recruited by hometown Louisville and Marshall’s Thundering Herd.HB Lyon, Senior Scout, KPGFootball
Louisville, KY: 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 whose performance exceeded expectations in week two and who will be vitally important to Trojans’ success in 2023. Today, we are focusing on Class of 2025, linebacker, Tucker Roth, from Louisville, Kentucky’s Pleasure Ridge Park High School (PRP).
Roth’s PRP High School is located right down the road from 2 Independence Bank branches. One is on 3901 Shelbyville Road at St. Matthews Square (pictured) and the other is on 1900 Colonel Sanders Lane, both in Louisville, Kentucky. Today we chose to feature the Saint Matthews Branch on Shelbyville Road and include a picture of that particular location.
Get on by and visit the most rapidly growing bank in the commonwealth of Kentucky, Independence Bank. Independence Bank has started a revolution in the banking industry.
Pleasure Ridge Park is not a program everyone associates naturally with dominating football. Now PRP’s basketball program has had many years where it was among the more feared programs in the commonwealth.
However, things change in football or any other sport. Tommy Williams’ Panthers have shown this young season they can be a mighty tough customer like any other 6A Louisville High School.
PRP is 1-2 on the season. However, they opened with Taft High out of Cincinnati, were able to beat the 6A defending champions (Buillitt East), and then dropped a game to Ballard which was closer than the final margin indicates. Before you go thinking Buillitt East lost everything to graduation, the Chargers beat perennially tough, 5A, Woodford County to open the year by 14-points.
Tucker Roth has been on the money for the Panthers. The 6’4,” 215-pound middle linebacker has 39-tackles in three games with 1.5-TFL’s, two (2) sacks, and three (3) blocked kicks. Roth had 19-tackles, a sack, and a blocked kick against the defending Kentucky 6A champions and had 13-tackles and a pair of blocked kicks against Taft.
Roth has been getting recruited heavily by the Ivy-League’s Columbia. Roth has also visited Marshall and corresponded with the hometown Cardinals (U of L) both digitally and through visits.
Roth is carrying a 3.62 GPA. Maybe he should take a long, hard look at Columbia. Can’t do any better in the “life changing” opportunities motif.
Congratulations to Tucker Roth for his Revolutionary Play in the early part of the season which has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, your friends at Independence Bank.
