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. This week we are focusing on a player whose performance exceeded both the Bulldogs and the Louisville Ballard community’s expectations.
We are focusing on the 5-11, 175-pound, class of 2023 QB/ATH, Tristen Hawkins. Hawkins plays for the Class 6A, Louisville Ballard Bruins who toil in one of the toughest districts in Kentucky football…District 5.
Hawkins’ Ballard High School is right down the road from one of the more famous branches in the Independence Bank family of financial institutions. The St. Matthews Square branch, one we feature quite a bit, is located on 3901 Shelbyville Road in Louisville, Kentucky.
Get on by and see our friends on St. Matthews Square today. Let them demonstrate to you just why Independence Bank has started a revolution in the banking industry.
Wow, what a night QB, Tristen Hawkins (’22) had for the Bruins in its 41-12 win over Class 5A, District 4, South Oldham Dragons. The ’23 QB completed 11 of 15 passing attempts for 289-yards passing with 3-TDs through the air against 0-thrown interceptions. Hawkins ran the ball 6-times for 14-yards and scored another 2-TDs over the ground.
All told, that is factoring in a key way in 5-TDs on the night. That is quite a bit of production out of just one offensive position regardless of how key that position happens to be.
Favorite target Kameron Horton (’23) caught 5-balls for 142-yards and a TD. Coveted DE and former recipient of this self-same award, Jadarion Smith (’22), had 13-tackles on the night with 3.5 coming from behind the line and two more being of the QB sack variety. On the year, Smith now has 26-tackles, 7-TFLs, and 5.5-QB sacks over the first three games.
Congratulations to Tristen Hawkins for his Revolutionary Play which has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky…your friends at Independence Bank.
