Independence Bank has started a revolution in the financial services industry

’26 WR/RB/DB/OLB among the best Kentucky has to offer particularly at the 3A level

Zach Wagner’s Cougars are in title contention at its level of play pretty much annually. One reason the Cougars are so darn good is the player development ongoing in that program. It is superior; so is the coaching. Guys like today’s featured player, Aden Bolden, routinely round into all-state caliber players particularly when considering their on-field production. Bolden is one heck of an athlete and with a 3.0 GPA he’s a sure-fire qualifier for most any college football program.

There is no better time than the present to anoint another Independence Bank, Revolutionary 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.   

Today we honor a ’26 versatile player who played RB/WR/DB and even some OLB for the Cougars over the course of its ’23 campaign. This week’s recipient had an incredible ’23 season, one which would see him register near 800-yards rushing (771), tally over 1,000-yards total offense (771-yards rushing, 256-yards receiving), score 11-TDs rushing and receiving, be second on the team in scoring, and fourth on the team in tackles.

Most importantly, Aden Bolden helped lead his team to an 8-2 regular season before dropping its first playoff game to Glasgow, a team which has performed very well at its level of play for many years. Today we honor Aden Bolden from Calhoun’s McLean County High.

Aden Bolden is a guy we feel certain we will see plenty from going forward with him at RB. He gained 771-yards in only 94-carries for 8.2 or so yards per carry. He caught 14-balls for 256-yards and another 3-TDs at WR.

Bolden was second on the team in scoring, fourth in tackles (57), and also registered 3-TFLs, a QB-sack, and a FR. That is quite a bit of production for a sophomore playing both ways on a 3A team which won 8-games a season ago.

Bolden rushed for 771-yards, had over 1,000 total yards, scored 11-TDs, registered 57-tackles, 3-TFLs, a sack, and a FR all while playing his sophomore season and posting a 3.0 GPA

Bolden is 5’9,” and weighs 165-pounds. We don’t know that he is finished growing, but he has a fine frame for where he figures to play and that 4.7-second, 40-yard dash time is one not too far off from where it needs to be going forward.

We are unsure where Bolden lands collegiately. We know Bolden is a superior athlete certain to gain clearance through the NCAA eligibility clearinghouse. We know that such prospects appear mighty attractive to many programs.

While we don’t know where Bolden will ultimately land and at what level of college football, his landing seems pretty darn certain to us. Frankly, Bolden is the type versatile athlete who could factor at many different levels of play and at multiple different positions.

What colleges will need to pressingly determine is whether they see Bolden as a ball carrier or a corner. Either one of those deployments are in high demand in the realm of Saturday football.

Decisions, decisions…
