Celebrating the type Revolutionary Performance which has made us the fastest growing bank in the Kentucky financial service's market

’24 linebacker is ferocious on the gridiron and wrestling mat

Frankie Nutt, Jr. is a big time prospect flying a bit under the radar. He is a three-time, wrestling state qualifier and performed very well at LB for the Mustangs in ’22. He has some programs dogging him and there seems to be quite a bit of interest in him. He has the type frame (6’1,” 225) college prefer in 2nd-level players.

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 in 2019 and who will be vitally important to The Blue Tornado’s success in 2020. Today, we are focusing on Class of 2024, linebacker, Frankie Nutt, Jr., from McCracken County High School. 

Nutt’s Mustangs are located right down the road from three (3) Independence Bank branches. These locations are on 2711 New Holt Road (West Park Branch), 3312 Lone Oak Road (Lone Oak Branch), and 211 U.S. Highway, 41-A (Highway 41-A Branch). Go and visit the most rapidly growing bank in the commonwealth of Kentucky, with 20 locations, Kentucky-wide, Independence Bank. Independence Bank has started a revolution in the banking industry.

Nutt played in 11-games a year ago but his production was right where one would expect from a HS football star. Nutt registered 46-stops at LB. Nutt was second on the team with 7-TFL’s. Nutt was tied for the lead with a pair of QB-sacks. Nutt even recovered a fumble.

One of Nutt’s more intriguing aspects is his prowess as a HS wrestler. Nutt has qualified for the Kentucky State Championship Wrestling Meet three straight years. His wrestling résumé evinces a “second level guy” who understands both explosion and leverage, two key components to fine linebacker play.

Next level, we see him staying at LB. We have no idea where he might be leaning but we have been through his Twitter “followers” and there are a number of prestigious programs in and around Kentucky which seem to have Nutt on their prospect boards.

If Nutt has another big-statistical season, from a production stand point, there is no reason to believe he won’t be getting heavily courted to play at the next level. If he doesn’t catch on with a college football team, there’s always wrestling.

Congratulations to Frankie Nutt, Jr., both for his Revolutionary Play in 2022 and that which is to come in 2023. His outstanding play, both in the past and that which is sure to come, has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, your friends at Independence Bank.
