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 Colonels’ and the Henderson County community’s expectations. We are focusing on sophomore star MLB, Jack McLevain.
McLevain plays for the Henderson County Colonels. Henderson County High School is a first-district, Class 6A football team located in the same county as three separate Independence Bank locations at 76 South Green Street; 1100 Barrett Boulevard; and in the Gardenside Shopping Center on 2610 Zion Road.
Henderson plays that tough variety of football better known as Kentucky 6A. The Colonels turned around a 5-7, 2017, to post a 7-5, 2018. They did it with one of the more dynamic, duel-threat QBs the western-KY area has, arguably, ever seen in Skip Patterson.
Patterson threw for 1,505 yards last year, added 827 yards on the ground, and accounted for (either running or throwing) 32 TDs. Bad new is…he’s out of eligibility and they don’t have another QB on the roster who threw more than 3 passes a year ago.
We have already awarded this distinction to Logan Green this past November as all he did in 2018 was rush for over 1,000 yards. Logan will be back for 2019 for one last trip through the fist district. Aside from him, the Colonels better play some defense.
Enter current sophomore and junior-to-be, Jack McLevain. McLevain really showed out in 2018 in a nearly Sophomore All-State level performance. KPGFootball can tell you the name “McLevain” was thrown about the selection committee meetings liberally as we attempted to identify our four best sophomore linebackers in Kentucky.
McLevain collected 56 tackles to lead the team in 2018 with 32 of them being solos. Jack sacked the QB once, forced a fumble, and intercepted a pass to go along with his tackle-production. KPGFootball and Independence Bank are both sure we will see an even heightened level of performance from McLevain over the course of his junior season in 2019.
Congratulations to Jack McLevain 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.
