Will it be Gavin Walker or Ayden Young under center when the Trojans visit Central’s Storm tonight?
Gavin Walker was at the controls for the lion’s share of ’21. Of course, the team really struggled in ’21. Will Walker be under center again tonight or will Ayden Young take the reins and give it a go? We believe it will be Walker under center when the Trojans lay siege to Central’s Storm in Madisonville. Kentucky for the 7:00 p.m. CST start time. Football season is here. Hooray!Fletcher Long, KPGFootball’s Senior Scout
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.
Get on by one of our branches today and discover why Independence Bank’s people, products, and services have started a revolution in the financial services market in Kentucky. You will be glad you did.
Independence Bank has a goal of achieving everyday excellence, and this week we are focusing on a player who just completed his junior season and will be looking to assume the leadership reins of his ball club over the course of his senior campaign beginning this Fall (’22). Of course, this guy has some stiff competition to hold onto the QB job and we may know as early as tonight if he held off all challengers. Today we are featuring QB Gavin Walker from Webster County High School.
Walker’s performance exceeded reasonable expectations in 2021 for his Trojans. Walker will be heavily counted on early and often over the course of his senior year for the Trojans to have any reasonable expectation of turning around its recent fortunes and charting an entirely new course for its upcoming season.
Walkers’s high school is located just minutes down the road from one of the loveliest branches in the Independence bank family. Dixon and Sebree, Kentucky are both in Webster County. From Webster County High School you just turn down KY-132 heading North and in 14.5 miles you’ll come to the branch which sits in the part of Webster County folks call “railroad country.”
Sebree was named for Col. Sebree. Col. Sebree was the first president of the St. Bernard Mining Company. The town was named in his honor in 1870 for his bringing the railroad to Webster County’s part of the commonwealth.
Today we especially feature our Sebree Branch (above pictured) for its extraordinary service, people, and products. If you are a customer or representative of that particular branch, this is your cue to take a bow.
Now if you make the trek to Sebreem, Kentucky from Webster County High don’t drive too fast. If you do you may miss some breathtakingly beautiful scenery along the way.
Get on by and visit the Sebree Branch today and discover what makes Independence Bank’s people, products, and services revolutionary in the financial services industry. Tell them we said hello and that we’ll be by when we get their way next time.
Gavin Walker is a ’23 prospect who played QB for the Trojans in ’21. Walker was the ball club’s leading passer in both attempts and completions, led the team in passing TDs, and led the team in net passing yards.
He’s been holding off a stiff challenge for the post this offseason. It seems Ayden Young has his eye on the prize too and the 5’9,” 155-pounder has looked impressive at some camps and combines this offseason.
Of course, if Young gets moved to QB, who’s going to play the other positions Young holds down for his team. Young plays DB on defense and RB and WR on offense in addition to his swipes at earning the QB-1 distinction.
The answer to this riddle will be posited tonight. The Trojans open on the road at Hopkins County Central tonight.
That’s a tough draw for the 3A, District 1 Trojans to go on the road and play a 4A, District 1 (Hopkins County Central) team coming off its best season it has had in years just one season ago (the Storm were 6-5 a year ago). Look at it this way, 3A, District 1 also contains both Union County (preseason ranked No. 4 in the MaxPreps 3A, Kentucky-wide poll) and Paducah Tilghman (preseason ranked 2nd, same poll), so maybe a trip to Madisonville won’t look as daunting as we potentially suggested.
Congratulations to Gavin Walker, both for his Revolutionary Play in 2021 and that which is to come in 2022, all of which has earned him 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!
