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 both has and continues to exceed both the Owensboro Apollo and Owensboro community’s expectations. Today, we are focusing on Class of 2022, QB, Gavin Wimsatt from Owensboro Sr. High School.
Coach Jayson M. Fallin’s Sr. High Red Devils are located right down the road from 3 Independence Bank branches on 2425 Frederica Street, 2465 W. Parrish Avenue, and 3228 KY-54, respectively. Get on by and visit the most rapidly growing bank in the commonwealth of Kentucky, Independence Bank. Independence Bank has started a revolution in the banking industry.
With last night’s victory over Muhlenberg County, 54-0, Owensboro Senior High might be the least talked about Class 5A team in Kentucky with an RPI of .636 and a 6-1 record. Owensboro has been playing without four of its best football players, Austin Gough and Imonte Owsley just to name two, and they haven’t lost a single game in Kentucky in 2019. The only Red Devil loss…10-8 to Evansville Central on August 30.
One of the largest reasons for the Red Devils’ success has to be its splendid sophomore QB Gavin Wimsatt. Wimsatt, not counting last night’s contest as the stats haven’t yet been posted, has completed 90 of 152 attempts for 1,271 yards through the air with 13 aerial TDs against only 6 picks. On the ground, Wimsatt has rushed the ball from QB 34 times for 184 yards with 7 rushing TDs.
There is little wonder Wimsatt would be so explosive. Over his freshman season, Wimsatt, who is 6-2 and 195-pounds, ran a 4.74-second forty yard dash and has shuttled in 4.71. We can’t imagine Wimsatt has gotten slower over the course of this season.
In an age where the most important statistic for a QB is “wins and losses,” Wimsatt has his team 6-1 and looking good coming into the playoffs. We believe that is worthy of some recognition.
Congratulations to Gavin Wimsatt for his Revolutionary Play which has earned this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky…your friends at Independence Bank.
