Not many players around Kentucky can claim contributions for his team as broadly based as the contributions Webster County gets from Aden Young. Can’t imagine a player being any more important toward the team’s success than this one.Fletcher W. Long, KPGFootball Senior Scout and Editorial Board Member

Independence Bank has a goal of achieving everyday excellence, and this week we are focusing on a player who just completed his junior season and will be looking to assume the leadership reins of his ball club over the course of his senior campaign beginning this Fall (’22). Today we are featuring Aiden Young from Webster County High School.
Young’s performance exceeded reasonable expectations in 2021 for his Trojans. Young will be heavily counted on early and often over the course of his senior year. Young’s high school is located just minutes down the road from one of Independence Bank’s most storied branches known throughout the family as the “Sebree Branch.”
One so inclined may get there by leaving the high school in Dixon, Kentucky and traveling to our location on 308 US-41 in Sebree, Kentucky 42455. Get on by and visit the Sebree branch today and discover what makes Independence Bank’s people, products, and services revolutionary in the financial services industry.
We have all heard the saying, “Jack of all trades, master of none.” This usually denotes someone who is proficient at many things but not exceptional at any particular one.
Now Aden Young, for the Trojans football team in ’21, was certainly proficient (putting it mildly) at a number of things. After all, he played WR, RB, and DB in addition to his duties on special teams primarily as its most explosive and dangerous home-run threat of a kick returner (KR).
We would insist Young’s performance as a junior exceeded proficiency at all these things. Then again, that is just we.
Young was the third leading rusher out of the backfield and the leading TD-scorer on the ground. Young was the team’s leading receiver, leading scorer, leading kick returning specialist who, in ’21, housed at least one kick return while breaking many others to the point of scoring without quite finding the end zone.
Young was among the team leaders in fumble recoveries. Young was among the team leaders in tackles. Young was among the team leaders in passes defended.
Was Young a Jack of all trades? Sure, he was.
Was he a master of none? We would say he was darn close to mastery of several, if not all.
Congratulations to Aden Young, both for his Revolutionary Play in 2021 and that which is to come in 2022, all of which has earned him 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!
