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.
Today we honor ’25 QB, Blaze Berry, from Louisville, Kentucky’s Eminence High School. Berry’s Eminence High is very close to a couple of Louisville, Kentucky branches. One of the branches is located on 3901 Shelbyville Road and the other is at 1900 Colonel Sanders Lane.
Get on by the Louisville Branches today and see our friends. Learn why Independence Bank‘s products, people, and services have started a revolution in the Kentucky banking industry.
Blaze Berry has had an incredible freshman campaign and led his team to a very successful season. On the year, Eminence High was 7-4 playing in one of the tougher districts across Kentucky’s 1A classification.
Berry threw for 2,640-yards his freshman season. This total was second best among all classifications and a school record. Berry also threw 33-TD passes which was third among all Kentucky classifications and also a school record.
Not many freshman signal callers can boast of completing 153-passes in a varsity season and throwing 6-TDs in one game. Not many can boast of 10-consecutive games with at least one TD pass thrown either. By the way, all three of the above were also school records.
Blaze is 6-1 and weighs 160-pounds with both numbers very likely to increase over the course of his high school career as he ages and matures. He has a 4.0 GPA and that is a number recruiters would like to see stay right where it presently is. This prospect is one you should keep on your radar as he continues to matriculate through Eminence High.
Berry’s coach is touting his freshman phenom for All-State consideration. That is exactly what his coach should be doing.
Let’s make this plain, this kid has had an All-State type year at the QB-position; no doubt! He will have a hard time being voted onto the team simply because he is a freshman.
There is no requirement for an All-Stater to be a junior or senior, and younger kids have before made the team. That being said the predilection suggests it favors older, as opposed to younger, players gaining selection.
Blaze Berry being a freshman won’t stop him from being award this prestigious distinction. His play has been revolutionary if nothing else!
Congratulations to Blaze Berry 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.
