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 Middle School All-American football player whose performance exceeded expectations in 2019 for his Owensboro Middle School football team and who will be vitally important to the Owensboro (Senior) High School’s future football success, and maybe as soon as next season. Today we are focusing on Bret Cooper Junior Academic All-American, Jak Lindsey from Owensboro, Kentucky.
Lindsey’s Owensboro Middle 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.
The biggest honor in the country for a middle school football player is selection to the Bret Cooper Junior Academic All-American game. In addition to being one of the best middle school footballers in the country, one has to maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA on a 4 point scale.
Owensboro Middle School is among the very elite programs at its level of competition in Kentucky Middle School football. Coach Greg Brown has routinely put players in this very elite football game in prior years. Names like Austin Gough, Savron Hines, Kenyatta Carbon, Khalil Rogers, Ethan Pendleton, Jeremiah Goodwin, Trey Miller, Almarrow Talbott, and Zach Clark should be familiar to both subscribers of KPGFootball and fans of the Bret Cooper game alike.
Jak Lindsey is just another name to add to the diadem of stars playing in the country’s most prestigious middle school football game and hailing from Owensboro, Kentucky. Lindsey, video of whom is above provided, is 6-3 and weighs 295-pounds. He played center and nose-guard for Coach Brown with his deployment at center being out of necessity owing to his being the only front guy this year at OMS who could snap the football with any consistency.
We have talked to the Appalachia Prep Combine’s Jerome Powell, II and he told us Lindsey is a big frame guy with impressive size and length who looks like he will get even bigger as he matures than he is presently. We are told he moves well, has explosive power steps, good hand placement, and plays with good leverage for a big-man at his stage of development. If he continues to play offensive center, this is a kid who could break the lineup at Senior next year pretty early in his freshman campaign.
Congratulations to Jak Lindsey, both for his Revolutionary Play in 2019 and that which is to come in 2020, all of which has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, your friends at Independence Bank.
This is Coach HB Lyon, reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron and reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT!
