Dane Parsley from Warren East is the @1776Bank Revolutionary Player of the Week @minguabeefjerky @840WHAS @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps

Independence Bank has started a revolution in the financial services industry

’25 two-way guy is one of the better athletes in Kentucky

We have been featuring versatility this offseason. Dane Parsley from Warren East may be the poster-child for such an attribute. He was the team’s leading passer, leading rusher, and leading scorer. He led the team in INTs (5), IRNYs (111-yards), and had one of the three team pick-sixes. He stuffed the stat sheet with goodies on both offense and defense and that is not something you see accomplished often on 4A rosters out of guys playing QB as their offensive position. Parsley is too good to keep off the field; period!

Bowling Green, KY: 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 through the regular season and who will be vitally important to the Dragon’s playoff success as we continue to travel down 2023’s path towards the championships. Today, we are focusing on Class of 2025, QB/FS, from Bowling Green’s Warren East High School, Dane Parsley.

Parsely’s Warren East High is located just down the road from today’s featured branch, the one located on “Williamsburg Square,” 877 Fairview Avenue; Bowling Green, KY. Get on by that branch today and discover what makes our people, products, and services revolutionary in the Kentucky financial industry.

In keeping with this offseason’s theme of versatility; today, we give you one of the more versatile performers in all of the KHSAA. Today, we feature Dane Parsley from Bowling Green’s Warren East High School.

First thing we noticed when researching this prospect is his alluding to the Jay-Z song, “Public Service Announcement.” Parsley entitled his highlight film from his junior season on his Hudl page, “Allow me to introduce myself.”

Jay-Z’s song, “Public Service Announcement,” which we feel certain Dane Parsely was alluding to in his title to his highlights, has the following lyrics

Allow me to re-introduce myself
My name is Hov, oh, H to the O-V…

You get our point. Unlike Jay-Z, Mr. Parsley is in no need of introduction to the KHSAA football fans out and among the readers to this very popular segment.

Parsley is a 6’2,” 200-pounder with a 10-inch hand and a 3.96 GPA together with a registered 23 on his ACT. He is a class of ’25 guy who has had the reigns to the Warren East offense since he was a freshman.

Parsley threw for over a thousand yards with seven TD throws in ’23 (1,070), ran for 625-yards with nine (9)-TDs rushing, led the team in scoring and played “a little” defense on top of all that. On defense, Parsley led the team in INTs (5), IRNYs (111-yards), and had one of the team’s three pick-sixes. Parsley also contributed 41-tackles, 2-TFLs, a FF, and a FR.

Parsley clips off 40-yards in 4.53-seconds. We like him as a defender, maybe even a LBer, at the next level which we believe can be from the lower divisions of the NCAA or NAIA all the way up to the FCS, Division I/Mid-Major, FBS level, depending on where he is willing to align.

We believe he has more value to larger schools as a defender, perhaps an ILB, than he would as an offensive player. However, should he be insistent on playing QB, we are sure there will be some “takers.”

We believe Parsley is more valuable to D-1 suitors as a defender…

Parsley is a “Dude”

Parsley led his team to a 6-6 campaign a year ago. In ’22, Jeff Griffith’s last year, the Raiders were 12-1, losing to Franklin County in the Regional Championship.

We like the Raiders to be in the mix this year. They were a single point from being a 7-win team in ’23 and the program’s winning 18-games over a two year stretch all while Parsley has been under center, is as productive of a stretch as the Raiders have enjoyed in quite a while.

This is a good ball club with a great and versatile athlete at the controls. Hard to corral 200-pounders in high school games who clip off the 40 in 4.53-seconds.

Congratulations to Dane Parsley for his Revolutionary Play over the course of the ’23 season which has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, your friends at Independence Bank.
