Well, what do you know? There is a guy named “Gough,” wearing number 26 at Owensboro Senior High at linebacker, who doubles as a running back, who is flipping terrific at football. This time his given name is Ethan and they call him “Big E.” Ethan can do many of the things his older brother, Austin, can do. Will Ethan be as big of a star as Austin Gough? We think he will and this season will be Ethan’s début. How exciting this will be to watch? We think very exciting and KPGFootball is thrilled to have front-row passes to see it.Fletcher W.

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 enters his sophmore season finally healthy and ready to fill the huge shoes left for him by his brother who wore the same number while a defensive stalwart for the Red Devils a few years back. Today, we are featuring Ethan Gough, a ’25 RB/MLB from Owensboro Senior High School.
Ethan attends Owensboro (Senior) High which is down the road from two fine Independence Bank branches, one located on 3228 KY-54 and the other on 2465 W. Parrish Avenue (above pictured) both in Owensboro, Kentucky. Get on by and visit either of these fine branches today. Discover what makes Independence Bank’s people, products, and services revolutionary in the financial services industry.
Gough has some pretty big shoes to fill, especially where he plays football. You see, Gough’s big brother, Austin, is the Red Devils present career tackles leader as well as being prominently ranked in many other important statistical categories. The “big brother” has moved along to the college game leaving little brother to carry on the Gough family legacy, no easy task for any player.
Ethan Gough showed everyone just of what he was made when a middle school superstar. Coming out of middle school, Gough seemed a freshman destined to get plenty of reps for one of the commonwealth’s preeminent 5A football programs. Then “Big E,” as he is called, got derailed by injury.
Gough got to play in five (5) games for the Red Devils in ’21. In spite of injury, he was still credited with four (4)-tackles.
“Big E” has had a tremendous offseason working out with big brother at the gym. The physical benefits are both eye-catching and obvious.
We aren’t prone to making too many speculations around either Independence Bank or KPGFootball but we are confident in making this particular one on this very special occasion.
Ethan Gough is about to have a monster season as a sophomore. You can take that to the proverbial (or even the literal) bank.
Congratulations to Ethan Gough for the Revolutionary Play in 2022 we expect from him this coming season and for earning this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, our friends at Independence Bank.
