’25 QB could find himself at FS in college
Warren East is a team with some star power which is playing pretty good football. The Raiders are 3-2, but a one-point loss to a 6A football team away from 4-1. The Tigers, from Hopkinsville (0-5), are visiting tonight and the Raiders will need a big game from its ’25 dual-threat QB (Dane Parsley) if it is to survive the Tiger incursion. Hopkinsville may be winless, the Tigers may be hapless; however, the Tigers are only 4-point underdogs tonight (Calpreps.com) with a 40% chance of getting off the schneid.HB Lyon, Senior Scout, KPGFootball

Bowling Green, 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 at the season’s mid-way point and who will be vitally important to the Raiders’ success as we continue to travel down 2023’s path towards the championships. Today, we are focusing on Class of 2025,QB/FS, Dane Parsley, from Bowling Green, Kentucky’s Warren East High School.
Parsley’s Warren East High is located just down the road from three Bowling Green, Kentucky area branches. There is a branch located on Freedom Square, 1950 Scottsville Road; there is the one on 2415 Nashville Road; and then there is the one in Williamsburg Square on 877 Fairview Road.
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.
Warren East is playing some pretty good football this year. Of course, much of it has to do with the outstanding play from its ’25 dual threat QB, Dane Parsley.
In the Raiders win over Calloway County a week ago, Parsley was scintillating. He led the team in passing yard and passed for one TD.
Parsley led the team in rushing too. Parsley had 152-yards rushing, with three (3) rushing scores, in only 12-carries.
On the year, Parsley’s play has been stellar. Parsley is leading his team in passing, rushing, and scoring. Resulting from his play, the team has had quite a year so far.
Warren East, this season, has beaten Daviess County (6A), beaten Warren Central (6A), and dispatched Calloway County (4A) which puts the Raiders 1-0 in the District title chase.
Warren East has dropped games to Greenwood (who has been red hot all season) and Barren County. Barren County beat the Raiders 7-6. Barren is a 6A team which is 3-2 themselves.
Parsley is a player we have before featured. Parsley is 6’2,” weighs close to 200-pounds, and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.53 seconds. Parsley has 10-inch hands and is handy around a classroom too (3.96 GPA).
As for where Parsley fits at the college level, we could see him playing FS as easily as QB. For now, he is the Raiders’ signal-caller and his play has elevated the program to heightened significance.
The Raiders host the Hoptown Tigers in Bowling Green, KY tonight. This is a matchup which generally goes the Tiger’s way.
The two teams haven’t played since the 2nd round of the playoffs in 2018. That game was also in Bowling Green.
The Tigers dominated the Raiders 24-0. The Tigers also played the Raiders in the second round in 2017, winning 21-7.
The Raiders were favored to beat the Tigers both years. Neither year was it much of a game.
So you will pardon us if Raiders fans are a little nervous about tonight’s matchup. The fact the Tigers are 0-5 will do little to relieve the Raiders’ anxiety.
In the end, we like the Raiders in this matchup. We believe the Raiders will go on to win tonight and then brace for a visit from Allen County-Scottsville.
KPGFootball calls it: Warren East 21, Hopkinsville 7
