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.
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. Get on by and see our friends on Henton Street and discover what make the services, products, and people at Independence Bank such a revolution in the banking industry.
This isn’t the first time we have awarded this distinction to Andrew Munster. However, a ton has happened to the McLean program and him personally since his first award January the 26th, 2019.
First of all, McLean County won the District 2 title in 2019. Even harder, they had to go on the road and get past perennial, 2nd-District bully, Owensboro Catholic to earn the right to play Somerset for the Region. That experience has done wonders for Coach Wagner and his program’s prestige and confidence.
First, McLean has been preseason ranked No. 10 in Class 2A by Bluegrass Preps and picked to win District 2 again, entering the 2020-season, which opens this evening, by the way. Secondly, Munster has been selected to the very prestigious Herald-Leader Hundred.
Do you know how hard it is to be selected to the Herald-Leader Hundred playing in the 2A-classification? Well, let’s put it this way; only 11-players, Kentucky-wide, were able to do it in 2020.
That means Andrew Munster, all 5-8 and 155-pounds of him, who doubles at FB and LB for McLean, has been selected one of the top-100 football players in all of Kentucky. With there being 13,271 young men playing football in Kentucky, that is quite a mouthful.
Munster’s prowess as a football player is hardly news to KPGFootball. You may not remember this but we related his being an All-State caliber player in our previous article written between 19 and 20-months ago.
In 2019, on offense at FB, the then-junior gained nearly 1,000-yards rushing (959) and scored 17-rushing TDs in 13-games. At linebacker, Munster registered 201-tackles with 12.5-TFLs, 5.5 QB-sacks, 3 FFs, 2 FRs, and an interception returned 23-yards.
Munster had a monster junior year production-wise similar to what he did when a sophomore in 2018. Statistically, his junior year was even better.
We believe tonight, at Muhlenberg County, a Class 5A, first-district team, Munster will begin what will turn out to be the culmination of a tremendous high school playing career. This will be especially true if he continues his trend of improved play from season to season.
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.
