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 both has and continues to exceed the Cougars’ and McClean County, Kentucky community’s expectations. We are focusing on the class of 2021, FB/LB, Andrew Munster, from McClean County, Kentucky.
Munster was first awarded this same Player of the Week distinction in January of 2019. That was based off of what he did in 2018 and was forecast to do in 2019.
Basically, he is winning it again because he is delivering everything we forecasted he would. Munster’s McClean County High School is approximately 7.9 miles from Calhoun, traveling down KY-136E, in neighboring Livermore, Kentucky, from an Independence Bank branch located on 614 Henton Street.
Munster has started off 2019 “red hot” as we predicted in January of 2019. However, McLean is anything but “red hot” at present but can change all that when they host 1-1, Union County High School for tonight’s game.
So far, on defense, the 5-8, 155-pounder has registered 39-tackles in 2 games of action. He has registered 13 solo efforts and mixed in 26 assists. Munster also has 4 TFLs and a QB sack and a half.
Munster, who doubles as a FB, has been almost more impressive on offensive so far. He has rushed the football, from scrimmage, 35 times in two games gaining 181-yards. He has scored 3 of the team’s 7 TDs on the year. As a matter of fact, Munster (Class of 2021) and Landon Capps have scored 38 of the team’s 64 points on the year.
Now, we mentioned McLean is not off to the type of start Coach Wagner has been accustomed to seeing. McLean is 0-2, thus far, losing to both Eminence 51-22 and Ohio County 46-42.
Tonight, the Cougars have a tough team calling on them in Union County. The Braves were scorched by Madisonville North-Hopkins in week-zero, 41-0. Hard to criticize that too harshly because the Maroons are one of the highest regarded teams in Kentucky’s Class 4A and a title contender.
Union County rebounded the following week. The Braves turned the scored around on the “Storm” from Hopkins County Central, 42-0. Hopkins County Central, also a Class 4A Kentucky team, is one of the Maroons’ district opponents in district-one.
Needless to say, McLean has an opportunity to turn the season around at home tonight. Union County needs this win, going forward, as badly as do the Cougars. Munster should get PLENTY of work tonight.
Congratulations to Andrew Munster from the McClean County High School in Calhoun, Kentucky for his Revolutionary Play which has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky…your friends at Independence Bank.
