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 expectations in 2020 and who will certainly be relied upon by Owensboro Catholic this coming ’21 season. Today, we are focusing on Class of 2024, RB/LB, Hunter Monroe from Owensboro’s Catholic High School.
Monroe’s Catholic 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.
Hunter Monroe had an incredible freshman season. It is hard to believe (sometimes) the level of production some programs are getting out of freshmen in high school these days.
Monroe is a 5-10, 175-pounder who doubles at RB and MLB. His production was “more prodigious” (if you will) on the offensive side of the football in ’20 but players this good never come off the field at the 2A level. That means his defensive numbers will continue to mount going forward.
In ’20, Monroe had 109-carries for 761-yards and 9-rushing TDs. He was also second on the team in scoring.
Defensively, Monroe had nearly 20-tackles with 2-TFLs. That isn’t shabby production from any freshman over an abbreviated season but it is remarkable in that he was the ball club’s leading rusher and someone they could scarcely do without.
Monroe’s Hudl page describes him as Humble, Hardworking, Honest, Handsome, God-loving, and Country Boy. Emphasis added. We aren’t in position to make comment about the Handsome part.
We suppose that should be a question reserved for each of you. We have heard, “…beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Margaret Wolfe Hungerford, from the book, Molly Bawn (1878). From what we can tell from his film, and the agents we have in Owensboro, the other parts don’t seem to be in contention.
Congratulations to Hunter Monroe, both for his Revolutionary Play at the ’20 and that which is to come in ’21’s football season, 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!
