There is a distinct possibility Daniel Swinney is the very best RB in Kentucky’s ’23 class. Lord knows the 5’11,” 220-pounder is built low and a load to attempt to tackle. His 3.1 GPA is no joke either. This guy is a clear “take” for colleges playing championship level football at the D-1 level, FCS or FBS.Fletcher W.

Independence Bank has a goal of achieving everyday excellence, and this week we are focusing on a player who just completed his junior season in spectacular fashion and is the unquestioned leader of the offensive side of the ball for one of Kentucky’s premier high school football programs. Today we may be featuring Kentucky’s most outstanding RB in the 6A classification in Daniel Swinney from Louisville’s Male High School.
Swinney’s performance exceeded reasonable expectations in 2021 for his Bulldogs. Swinney will be heavily counted on early and often over the course of his senior year.
Swinney’s Male High is located just minutes down the road from two of Independence Bank’s more storied branches, one on 3901 Shelbyville Road and the other, our feature branch today, located on 1900 Colonel Sanders Lane.

Daniel Swinney really had quite a junior season. The 5’11,” 219-pound rolling ball of thunder carried the football 226-times for 1,659-yards and 29-rushing TDs.
By our count, Swinney averaged 7.34-yards per rushing attempt and scored a TD every 7.79-times he carried the football. We did mention the young man was playing football at the highest classification of competition in Kentucky (6A) and in one of its tougher districts (4th) in a city (Louisville) in which it is thought the best football in the commonwealth gets regularly played.
Swinney was effective in the passing game too, swinging out of the backfield. Swinney, in ’21, had 14-receptions for 317-yards. Swinney was the Bulldogs’ leading scorer a season ago.
Numbers like the above would be impressive at any classification and in any district. Numbers like the above playing football in Louisville Kentucky’s 6A classification, 4th district is perhaps even more astonishing.
Congratulations to Daniel Swinney, both for his Revolutionary Play in 2021 and that which is to come in 2022, all of which has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, our friends at Independence Bank.
