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 both has and continues to exceed both the Cougars’ and McClean County, Kentucky community’s expectations. We are focusing on the class of 2020, RB/LB, Peyton Caraway, from McClean County, Kentucky, whose McClean County High School is approximately 7.9 miles from Calhoun, traveling down KY-136E, in neighboring Livermore, Kentucky, from an Independence Bank branch located on 614 Henton Street.
Speaking of achieving everyday excellence and revolutionary play, Peyton Caraway certainly contributed both, on both sides of the football, to his team’s beat down of district foe, Butler County, on Friday night. Caraway, a class of 2020 RB/LB prospect, is 6-1, 220 pounds of down-hill rolling stone who is averaging a little more than 9 yards a carry on the year for the Cougars (58 rushing attempts, 528 yards gained, 6 rushing TDs through 8 games). Friday night, the big backfield terror picked it up a notch in helping McClean County win 42-6 on the road. Caraway rushed the ball only 9 times, but gained 104 yards (11.56 yards per attempt), and scored twice on the ground. Between backfield mate Jacob Miller (who was given strong consideration for this week’s award) and him, the two backs gained 182 yards, in 17 rushing attempts (10.71 per attempt), with 5 rushing TDs (Miller gained 78 yards in 8 attempts with 3 rushing TDs to his credit). Not satisfied with just making an offensive contribution, no matter how substantial, Caraway contributed 3 tackles from his inside Linebacker post and shared on a quarterback sack. McClean County got a superior game from another candidate for the award, this week, as Andrew Munster had 12 tackles, against Butler County, additionally contributing one tackle for loss and one quarterback sack. All and all, our being burdened with choosing one player, both KPGFootball and Independence Bank are comfortable Caraway, with his contributions on both sides of the ball, is our man for October 12 anyway.
Congratulations to Peyton Caraway from the McClean County High School in Calhoun, Kentucky 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.
