“Meechie” Dunlap from Male High made the most of his opportunities
Demetrius Dunlap only played in six (6) games in ’22 but man did he ever make the most out of his opportunities. Lots of teams vying for his services at virtually every level of college football competition from FBS through the NAIA. Wherever this kid lands, that school is going to be getting a tremendous athlete with plus size, length, speed, and explosion.Fletcher W. Long, KPGFootball‘s Chief of the Scouting Division
There is no better time than the present to anoint another Independence Bank, Revolutionary 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.
Today we honor one of the top defensive backs in the entire commonwealth of Kentucky who would have posted unbelievable numbers had he played an entire season as opposed to his six (6) games of run he enjoyed. Today we honor Demetrius “Meechie” Dunlap from Louisville, Kentucky’s Male High School.
Male High School is located just down the road from two Louisville area Independence Bank branches. The featured branch today is the one in the office suites located in 1900 Colonel Sanders Lane and pictured below this very paragraph. We also have a branch located on St. Matthews Square on 3901 Shelbyville Road both in Louisville-proper.
Get on by the Louisville area locations today and see our friends. Learn why Independence Bank‘s products, people, and services have started a revolution in the Kentucky banking industry.
Demetrius Dunlap is a 6’2,” 185-pound athlete who played in the defensive third level for the Male Bulldogs. He only got six (6) games of run in ’22. This didn’t adversely impact his performance.
Dunlap registered 24-tackles and a fumble recovery. In addition, he led the Bulldog Defense in three pretty important categories apart from tackles and recovered fumbles.
Dunlap was first in INT’s (4). Dunlap was first in Net Interception Return Yards (118). Dunlap was first in “pick-sixes (2).”
Now “Meechie” is being widely pursued by programs from FBS, FCS, to NCAA D-2, to the NAIA. Some of his top interest has been drawn from programs like Purdue (FBS, Power 5), Morehead (FCS, D-1), Kentucky Wesleyan (NCAA D-2), University of Charleston (D-2), Lindsey Wilson (NAIA), and University of the Cumberlands (NAIA).
There are many others vying for his “next level” services. We could see him at any of those levels of play. We feel, if he had gotten more than six (6) games of game play in ’22, there would have been no limit to where his talents and skills could have placed him.
Congratulations to Demetrius “Meechie” Dunlap for his “Revolutionary Play” over the course of the his career and particularly during the previous season where he made the very most of his limited opportunities. We maintain his play this past year easily earned this magnificent senior this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, our 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!
