Independence Bank

Owensboro Catholic High School is located right down the road from 3 Independence Bank branches on 2425 Frederica Street, 2465 W. Parrish Avenue (pictured), and 3228 KY-54, respectively. 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.

William Carrico’s nickname is “Tutt.” The historical significance of that particular nome de guerre is rather obvious, at least to me.

To be fair, the colloquialism, “King Tut,” has fewer “Ts” than “Tutt Carrico;” but the reference brings the Egyptian King from antiquity, Tutankhamun, to mind nevertheless. Our Tutt seems more kingly than history’s Tut anyway.

Our “Tutt” was Catholic’s leading scorer with 176 points or 12.6 per game. Our Tutt was the club’s leading receiver with 84-grabs for 1,587-yards entering today’s game and 27-TDs.

Our Tutt leads the ball club in FFs (4), INTs (6), and IRNYs (75). Our Tutt is tied for the club lead in pick-sixes (1), FRs (2), while being 4th in rushing, 2nd in tackles (98) and 2nd in TFLs (12).

History’s “Tut” was king of Egypt for 18 measly years in the B.C. era (1341-1323), was pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty of ancient Egypt, whose death marked the cessation of the dynasty’s royal line. Big deal; Whoopity-darn-do; but could he even catch a football? Probably not!

King Tutt

I wouldn’t trade our Tutt for their Tut. Not today anyway; with the championship hanging in the balance of Friday’s game.

Carrico and his teammates vie for a title, Friday, on Kroger Field against the Mighty Mayfield Cardinals. We have picked the Aces to upset the Cardinals, a prediction which has engendered considerable derision aimed at us from a considerably robust, Graves County contingent.

Overcoming Mayfield will be a tough obstacle for Catholic as Mayfield has virtually made a home away from home in Lexington, Kentucky and wherever else the championships have been played over the years. If the Aces are to succeed, they will need to lean of the Atwell to Carrico combination which is only 1-TD away from tying a Kentucky record as the all-time TD combination in KHSAA history.

This one here will be a ton of fun to watch. We will see you there.

CalPreps.com predicts, on a neutral field: Mayfield  35 (53%), Owensboro Catholic (Owensboro, KY) 34 (47%)

Congratulations to William “Tutt” Carrico 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.

This is “Friday Night Fletch,” reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE!
