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/ Murray

Independence Bank has a goal of achieving everyday excellence, and this week we are focusing on a player whose performance exceeded both the Colonels’ and the Henderson County community’s expectations. We are focusing on one of the class of ’22’s most dynamic superstar two-way players in Drew Hudgin.

Hudgin played for the Calloway County Lakers. Calloway County High School is a first-district, Class 4A football team located in the same county as two separate Independence Bank locations. One is located on 507 North 12th Street and the other is on 721 South 12th Street, both in Murray, Kentucky. 

Get on by and see our friends and thank them for the provision of this coverage. Find out what makes their services and products revolutionary in the financial services industry!

Talk about your hidden gemstones, what in the world can one even say about 6-1, 185-pound Drew Hudgin from Calloway County and what he did in the Fall of ’21? He played in all 10 of the Lakers’ games and led this team with 44-receptions for 576-yards receiving with 6-TDs.

Hudgin led the team in offensive scoring. He added 2-INT returns for TDs and a two-point conversion to his 6-TD receptions.

Highlights Part One; Part Two

On defense he was equally impressive. Hudgin, as a hybrid DB/LBer, had 31-stops, 1.5-TFLs, 1-FF, 1-FR, 3-INTs, two of which he returned for scores among his 142-yards of INT return yards.

With numbers like these, there can be little wonder concerning why this player ended ’21 on the All-WKC (Western Kentucky Conference) team. He will be sorely missed and difficult to replace on next year’s roster.

Calloway had a disappointing year in ’21, finishing 3-7 and missing the playoffs. However, the Lakers lost to Class 2A perennial western power Murray High by only six points and dropped a one-pointer to Hopkins County Central.

Coach Chris Champion will have his squad back in the hunt for district relevance in very short order. Players like Hudgin, and their considerable efforts, have lain the ground work for that happening.

Congratulations to Drew Hudgin, Class of ’22, for his Revolutionary Play 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 KPGFootball reminding you that we are just CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT!
