Having an edge in special teams is found money!
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 who, quite frankly, may be the most important piece of the puzzle returning for the Henderson County Colonels this fall. Placekicker, Colton Evans, who is also a star on the varsity baseball team, is the Colonels’ leading returning scorer from a year ago. Henderson County, a Class 6A, first-district power, is coming off an 8-4 year.
Colton’s Henderson County High School is right down the road from three (3) Independence Bank branches in Henderson, Kentucky. Henderson County High School is right down the road from a branch on 1100 Barret Boulevard; a branch on 76 South Green Street; and a branch on 2610 Zion road in the Gardenside Shopping Center.
Go on down and see our friends at any or all three of the locations and give them both the opportunity and privilege to earn your business. Let them demonstrate to you what makes Independence Bank the best in the banking business and the fastest growing financial institution in Kentucky.
Colton Evans led his high school football team in scoring in 2019. He scored 47-points on the year for a team which finished 7-3 in the regular season and 8-4 overall, bowing to McCracken in the playoffs’ second round.
Evans made six (6) field goals on the year. In addition, he made 23 of his 33 attempts at the pivotal and often game turning points after a scored touchdown (PAT). For those mathematically inclined, that puts Evans’ PAT conversion rate at close to 70%.
The 2021 prospect has shown plenty of range with what has been described as a powerful yet still lithe leg. With the snap and placement perfected and ever-improving as his level of play rises, it is easy to predict he will round into quite a weapon for a college football program in the very near future.
For right now, his Colonels will call on him to get them points on deep drives which stall out in the opponent’s red-zone. Should he appreciably improve over what he accomplished a year ago, it is foreseeable he could gain favorable All-State consideration at season’s end.
Congratulations, Colton Evans, both for your Revolutionary Play in 2019 and that which is to come in 2020, all of which has earned you this week’s recognition. Go out there and show them of what you’re made, Ethan…your friends at the three (3) Henderson, Kentucky area locations of Independence Bank will all be watching!
