Big E, Ethan Gough, is our @1776Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week @SrHighFootball @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @HopkinsCentral @evans02_mike @_CoachManning @KyHighFootball @AGLOADING26

Kentucky's fastest growing bank in the financial services market rendering a truly "Revolutionary Service" to all of its customers

Who knows what level of production we may see from a healthy Ethan Gough

Well, what do you know? There is a guy named “Gough,” wearing number 26 at Owensboro Senior High at linebacker, who doubles as a running back, who is flipping terrific at football. This time his given name is “Ethan” and they call him “Big E.” We think ’23 will be, in earnest, Ethan’s long awaited début as a regular, every down player. How exciting this will be to watch? We think very exciting and KPGFootball is thrilled to have front-row passes to see it.

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 who enters his junior season finally healthy and ready to fill the huge shoes left for him by his brother who wore the same number while a defensive stalwart for the Red Devils a few years back. Today, we are featuring Ethan Gough, a ’25 RB/MLB from Owensboro Senior High School.

KPGFootball on Independence Bank

Ethan attends Owensboro (Senior) High which is down the road from two fine Independence Bank branches, one located on 3228 KY-54 and the other on 2465 W. Parrish Avenue both in Owensboro, Kentucky. Get on by and visit either of these fine branches today. Discover what makes Independence Bank’s people, products, and services revolutionary in the financial services industry. 

Gough has some pretty big shoes to fill, especially where he plays football. You see, Gough’s big brother, Austin, is the Red Devils’ career tackles leader as well as being prominently ranked in many other important statistical categories. The “big brother” has moved along, leaving little brother to carry on the Gough family legacy, no easy task for any player.

Gough got to play in five (4) games and, in spite of injury, was still credited with 20-tackles and a QB-sack

Ethan has played sporadically but has been greatly limited by injury. He appears to be entering the ’23 season healthy and ready to demonstrate his “Gough-ness.”

“Big E” is having a tremendous offseason working out and getting himself physically ready for the rigors of the game. The physical benefits are both eye-catching and obvious.

We aren’t prone to making too many speculations around either Independence Bank or KPGFootball but we are confident in making this particular one on this very special occasion. Ethan Gough is about to have a monster season as a junior, should he get a full season’s run. You can take that to the proverbial (or even the literal) bank.

Congratulations to Ethan Gough for the Revolutionary Play in 2023 we expect from him this coming season and for earning this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, our friends at Independence Bank.
