Kentucky's fastest growing bank in the financial services market rendering a truly "Revolutionary Service" to all of its customers

Senior two-way star from Louisville a sizable part of team’s championship output

In keeping with the week’s theme, we are honoring and featuring kids this week who lent extraordinary performances for their teams over the course of the championship weekend. This particular player is one on whom we have before reported many times. He is an extraordinary talent who toils for the Centurions on both sides of the scrimmage line and is a team leader in any capacity required of him.

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, two-way superstars in the entire commonwealth of Kentucky. We particularly want to feature all he did to guide his team to the 3A Championship last weekend. Today we honor Gavin Copenhaver from Louisville, Kentucky’s Christian Academy.

Gavin Copenhaver guided his Centurions from the Christian Academy-Louisville (CAL) to the championship game to contest a Bardstown club as undefeated as were his Centurions entering the game. Obviously, one of the undefeated were “going down” last weekend. Copenhaver was committed to it not being his bunch.

Copenhaver gained 225-yards rushing on 15-carries in the championship game. Two of his 15 carries found the end zone.

KHSAA Statistical Website

Copenhaver gained 225 of the teams 286-rushing yards for 80% of the team’s output. Copenhaver scored 14 of the team’s 38-points for 37% of the team’s scoring. Copenhaver made 13 of the team’s 56-recorded tackles on the day for 24% of the team’s “stops.”

That sure seems to us to be a considerable percentage of production in key offensive and defensive areas to all have come from one player. Of course, Gavin would be the first to ask you to tip your hat to his teammates, without whom he wouldn’t have been able to realize any of the above accomplishments. Tou·ché!

Congratulations to Gaven Copenhaver for his “Revolutionary Play” over the course of the Championship weekend and this entire season. We maintain his championship game performance, particularly on both sides of the football, easily earned this magnificent senior this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, our friends at Independence Bank.
