We are in the throws of Future Stars season. What we mean by that is middle school stars across Kentucky are auditioning to play in the Tennessee-Kentucky Future Stars Classic this coming summer. This time of year always makes us think of Kentucky’s finest. Sedgwick is certainly among them. Enjoy this feature on one of Kentucky’s very finest at WR and CB. Get on by and visit one of our fine branches today and discover what makes Independence Bank’s people, products, and services revolutionary in the financial services industry. HB.
With players like Keagan Prince coming into the Blackcats program, things are looking up for Prestonsburg HS. Looks like happy days may be here again for a program which has been losing its local talent but not now. Enjoy the feature. HB.
Brady Hensley may be the best RB in all of Kentucky Football. He certainly is toward the top of the ’24 class. What he did last year as a sophomore will pale in comparison with what we expect from him this coming season. Enjoy the feature. HB.
Kentucky presents real opportunity for colleges wise enough to comb its fertile recruiting fields for football talent. There is no shortage of talent and, matter of fact, lucky college programs can come up with superior talent just lying around waiting to be claimed. Camden Phillips is a kid who, if he played in Nashville, TN, he might be headed to Auburn. As it is…well, here’s your Huckleberry as Doc Holiday would say. HB.
Gavin Chadwell is easily among the top players at his position in the commonwealth. This goes equally for his secondary position (DE) like it does for his primary position (TE). He has a college frame, right now. UK confirmed this with an offer for this top prospect as a sophomore. Enjoy this feature. HB.
This is a prospect who may impact his team’s fortunes more so than any other player in the 2A classification as we approach the ’22 season. He also may be in the discussion for the ’22 “Mr. Football” award. Enjoy this look at Middlesboro High’s Cayden Grigsby. HB.
Today we bring you a feature on a young man we have before featured when he was still in middle school. Kenyatta Carbon has found a way to contribute to the team’s success in a variety of ways. At Independence Bank we celebrate young people who find a variety of ways to contribute to the cause. Come by and visit us and learn the variety of ways our people, services, and products have revolutionized the Kentucky banking industry. Enjoy the feature. HB.
Jayden Justice is a middle school kid who everyone across Kentucky is already discussing. With Future Stars tryouts ongoing there is little doubt this LBer will be representing Kentucky this summer in the Tennessee-Kentucky Future Stars Classic. He is one of Kentucky’s very best in the ’27 class. Enjoy the feature. HB.
This is a guy who seemed virtually faceless and nameless a year ago, his junior season. When you get a load of what he will do this coming season you will wonder how that was even possible. We will tell you how it is possible; it is called playing for Kentucky’s most heavily loaded football roster in its largest classification of competition. Join us again next week as we award some more of the country’s finest beef jerky product to some of Kentucky’s finest football talent. HB.
Hayes Preston had a tremendous freshman campaign. What we believe he will do as a sophomore will astound all but the most astute of high school fans. Preston is at the very top of the class among ’25s. We could see him playing a multitude of posts depending on how his frame finished. Enjoy the feature. HB.
