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 whose performance exceeded both the Panthers’ and the Davies County community’s expectations. We are focusing on the 6-0, 170 pound, class of 2019, QB, Joseph Joey Cambron. Cambron plays for the class 6A Davies County Panthers who are a first district football team located in the same county as three separate Independence Bank locations right there in Owensboro.
I just attended the Western Kentucky Conference Coach’s Association Combine for rising juniors and seniors at McCracken County High School. There were college recruiters there from the FCS level down; and they were, understandably, going crazy over Marquel Tinsley, the 6-2 210 pound WR, built like a linebacker. What’s not to like about Tinsley who, just last year, caught 76 passes for 1,447 yards receiving and 22 receiving TDs. Any player 6-2 and 210 pounds, who runs a 4.6 forty, and has production like above noted gets attention from college coaches. The coaches are going to go gah-gah for a guy like that, what do you expect? Of course, the guy on the other end of the potent passing tandem might just draw an eye or two himself. His name is Joseph Joey Cambron, and he has drawn some inquiring eyes, namely at the University of Louisville, where the Cardinals had him down for the ole once-over.
Cambron, last season, completed 236 of his 421 passing attempts for 4,078 yards and 49 aerial scores against only 11 interceptions in leading the Panthers to a 7-6 overall finish and a second round defeat of McCracken County in round two of the KHSAA football playoffs. The Panthers return both Cambron and Tinsley, together with probably the most potent offensive attack in Western Kentucky (474 points scored last season over 13 games for 36.46 points per game). The Panthers will have to do something about the 27 points a game the Defense is surrendering, but should they get a handle on that aspect, these guys have an offense not many defenses outside of Louisville can hope to contain.
Congratulations to Joseph Cambron 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.
