@Augustinnyembo8 (Augustin Nyembo) from @PurplesFootball is the @1776Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @TNselect7v7 @KyHighFootball @CoachSpader @BGHSPurplesNews

Augustin Nyembo may be among the better kept secrets playing football in the 5A classification in western-end of Kentucky. Nyembo was among the KHSAA’s leaders a year ago in forced fumbles (FFs) which means he is certainly laying some wood out there. This kid is an excellent corner prospect who comes up into the run box and makes plays downhill.

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. 

Fairview Branch

Get on by one of our branches today and discover why Independence Bank’s people, products, and services have started a revolution in the financial services market in Kentucky. You will be glad you did.

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 Augustin Nyembo from Bowling Green Senior High School. 

Nyembo’s performance exceeded reasonable expectations in 2021 for his Purples. Nyembo will be heavily counted on early and often over the course of his senior year. Nyembo’s high school is located just minutes down the road from three of Independence Bank’s most storied branches known throughout the family as “Freedom Square,” 1950 Scottsville Road, “Nashville Road,” 2415 Nashville Road, and the “Fairview Branch,” located on 877 Fairview Avenue all three in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Today we especially feature our Fairview Branch for its extraordinary service, people, and products. If you are a customer or representative of that particular branch, this is your cue to take a bow.

One wishing to visit the Fairview Branch from Bowling Green Senior High may travel about 2.5 miles via Nashville Rd/U.S. 31W Bypass N; or travel down either Oliver or High Streets. It will take you 8-9 minutes based on time of day and traffic considerations.

Get on by and visit the Fairview branch today and discover what makes Independence Bank’s people, products, and services revolutionary in the financial services industry.

Now BGHS is not far removed from its 5A Title it won in ’20. The team had a rebuilding year in ’21 sliding across the finish line 6-6.

There is no reason to forlorn. Lots of young talent on the roster, not the least of which is ’25 prospect Deuce Bailey, who played QB as a freshman and threw for 1,100 yards and 8-TDs and rushed for 3-more TDs all while at the controls of the offense in one of 5A’s tougher districts.

Bailey should have a much improved campaign over the coming season as he will be a sophomore with loads of game experience under his belt. Augustin Nyembo will be back for his senior year. If his junior year is any indication, that is good news for the Purples.

Nyembo may be the most accomplished and talented corners on the western-end of Kentucky. As a Junior, this ’23 stud collected 50-tackles, 2-TFLs, picked a pass, and forced a whopping 4-fumbles proving he was certainly laying the wood out there for the defense. Nyembo was also among the team leaders in passes broken up or defended.

The 5’10” and 175-pounder will be called upon to lead the team’s resurgence to prominence and District 2 supremacy if it can be wrestled away from last year’s State-Title holder, South Warren. Both Greenwood and Christian County appear much improved from a season ago making that district up for grabs when ’22 rolls through.

Congratulations to Agustin Nyembo, 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.
