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 Daviess County Panther’s and Owensboro community’s expectations. Today, we are focusing on Class of 2020, RB-MLB, Shane Riley from Daviess County High School.
Riley’s Daviess County High School is located right down the road from 3 Independence Bank branches on 2425 Frederica Street, 2465 W. Parrish Avenue, and 3228 KY-54, respectively. Get on by and visit the most rapidly growing bank in the commonwealth of Kentucky, Independence Bank. Independence Bank has started a revolution in the banking industry.
To say the Panthers’ season has gotten off to an inauspicious beginning may be a gross understatement. Matt Brannon’s Class 6A, first district Panthers played Central Hardin in week-zero. Yeah, they got hammered 49-10.
However, there were some individual performances which bode well for the season going forward if the Panthers can greatly improve its Friday night performance over the one occurring week zero.
We thought old No. 23 for the Panthers was certainly a bright spot. Shane Riley gained 136 yards from scrimmage being used primarily on the offensive side of the football, though he is listed at MLB too where he played sparingly (1 tackle against Central Hardin). Shane carried the ball 28 times and was able to score a rushing TD, accounting for 6 of his team’s 10 points on August 23rd.
Coach Brannon is going to see lots more from his squad going forward if the Panthers are to win many games in Kentucky’s top classification (6A). Daviess County hosts Owensboro Catholic tonight and, while Catholic is a Class 2A team, they are plenty tough. Catholic did beat Class 5A Owensboro Sr. High just last season.
Congratulations to Shane Riley for his Revolutionary Play which has earned this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky…your friends at Independence Bank.
This is Coach HB Lyon, filling in for Fletcher Long for this article, reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron and reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT!
