Diminutive MLB played well above his head all season
With all the playoff crazy going on tonight, sometimes we need to take a breath and render an accounting about the season just played which is over for so many players across the commonwealth. Coach LaGrange is making definite strides in Dixon, Kentucky. His team’s performance this year got perilously close to fantastic and Braxton Alexander’s play was exceptional. Let’s not forget to celebrate efforts like this, whether they are done for the year o not!Fletcher W. Long, Head of the Scouting Division, KPGFootball
There is no better time than the present to anoint another Independence Bank, Revolutionary 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 maybe the best DL in the entire state of Kentucky, at least if you are concerned with down linemen making explosive plays and long-sticks from the defense’s first level. Today we honor Braxton Alexander from Dixon, Kentucky’s Webster County High.
Webster County High is close to three separate Independence Bank locations in and around the Webster County area. There is one in Beech Grove, Kentucky located in the Marathon Gas Station on 305 Beech Grove Street. There is one in Sebree, Kentucky on 308 US Highway 41. There is our featured branch (pictured) located in Providence, Kentucky on 298 US-41-Altrenate.
Get on by the Webster County area locations today and see our friends. Learn why Independence Bank‘s products, people, and services have started a revolution in the Kentucky banking industry.
The season is over for the Webster County Trojans. Webster lost to an 8-win Casey County team in the playoff’s first round.
That doesn’t mean Coach Lagrange’s charges didn’t perform well this year in spite of its 4-7 mark. Consider this, the Trojans lost its opener by one score to Class 4A Hopkins Central, lost a game by one score to 1A powerhouse Crittenden County, who is playing tonight by the way, and lost by one score to Trigg County, who may have been among the better teams in 3A prior to its star QB being limited by injury.
We are talking three scores over the course of a season from being 7-4 instead of 4-7. Football is a game of inches.
Speaking of performers, how about the performance this year by Webster’s 5’8,” 150-pound MLB, Braxton Alexander? Alexander had quite a year.
Alexander registered 57-tackles, 5.5 QB-sacks (team registered 15.5), 4-FF’s, and 3-FR’s. I am sure a team fighting its backside off appreciated the extra possessions which came from forcing four (4) fumbles and recovering three (3).
That is a tremendous amount of time spent in the opponent’s backfield. That is a tremendous amount of playmaking from any MLB at any size for any team at any classification.
Congratulations to Braxton Alexander for his “Revolutionary Play” this season and that which is to come next year, his senior season. We anticipate his performances to come, together with what he has done to date, have easily earned this magnificent Junior MLB this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, our friends at Independence Bank.
This is Coach HB Lyon, reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron and reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT!
