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 ’24 OL, Carter Guillaume, from Louisville, Kentucky’s St. Xavier High School. Guilliame’s St. Xavier 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.
Carter Guillaume has had quite a few seasons of late being honest. For starters, he was first-team at offensive center for the Class 6A football champions, the Tigers from St. Xavier High School in Louisville, Kentucky.
With Guillaume anchoring the Tigers, the offense rushed for 2,661-yards and scored 37-TDs and threw for 2,419-yards and 30-TDs to constitute (perhaps) Kentucky’s most balanced offensive attack anywhere in the commonwealth a season ago. For his efforts, Guillaume was named to the 2nd-Team, Associated Press, All-State Football team as only a sophomore, a rare distinction in deed. KPGFootball named him to our All-State, first-team.
Then, there is the “other sport.” Carter is also a varsity wrestler in the 285-pound division. Guillaume made it to the Kentucky Championship Match were he lost a narrow decision to KJ Harvey from Hopkinsville’s Christian County High School. Still, to be the Kentucky runner-up at 285-pounds in wrestling should tell one all one needs to know about the kid’s toughness, leverage, and mettle.
In winning the title in football a year ago, St. Xavier finished 14-1. In the championship game, the Tigers avenged an earlier loss to a Louisville Male team which had beaten the Tigers in the regular season and had been both nationally ranked, and ranked the top team in Kentucky all season.
As for Guillaume’s prospects for playing collegiately, that appears to be in little question. Guillaume is approximately 6-2 and weighs a solidly and densely distributed 280-pounds. Guillaume is the younger brother of Parker Guillaume who is at Centre College right now, penciled into the starting lineup at corner this Spring, and who is raved about by program followers “in the know” as perhaps the finest athlete on the entire roster.
We believe Guillaume will have his choice of programs when it is his time to make such a call. For right now, let’s enjoy the fact he is Kentucky’s very finest talent at offensive center anywhere in the commonwealth at any level of play.
Congratulations to Carter Guillaume 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.
