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 Owensboro Catholic and Owensboro community’s expectations. Today, we are focusing on Class of 2022, WR, Braden Mundy from Owensboro Catholic High School.
Coach Jayson Morris’ Owensboro Catholic Aces are 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.
We featured Braden Mundy back in November of his freshman season when it was envisioned he would probably be a linebacker. Frankly, with a 5-11 and 205 pound frame, one might see him fitting in well there, and truthfully he was.
If you will recall, Mundy is not just a superstar on the gridiron. We detailed in our earlier piece how he was one of Kentucky’s top baseball prospects in the graduating class of 2022. That is from where we got the above picture.
Mundy who blazes the 40-yard dash in 4.58 seconds, bench press 225, squats a clean 365, and has western Kentucky’s finest HS QB to throw the ball to him, has been moved primarily to the offensive side of the football. Now, instead of LB he is deployed at WR/RB. One can easily see how he ended up on offense this year with his skill set and the QB the Aces have under center.
Mundy hasn’t disappointed in the least either. Through the Aces first five games (4-1), he has 23 receptions for 484 yards receiving (21.04 yards per). He has caught 4 TD passes, and is averaging 96.8 yards receiving per ball game.
Tonight, the No. 6 Aces go on the road to play a tough Todd County Rebel squad (No. 9) in Elkton, Kentucky. Todd County is tough against the run from scrimmage so the Hatz to Mundy connection figures to be a prominent feature of the Aces’ offensive attack.
