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 both the Colonels’ and the Henderson County community’s expectations. We are focusing on the 5-4, 142 pound class of 2020, RB/FS, Logan Green. Green plays for the Henderson County Colonels who are a first district, Class 6A football team located in the same county as three separate Independence Bank locations at 76 South Green Street; 1100 Barrett Boulevard; and in the Gardenside Shopping Center on 2610 Zion Road.
Getting overlooked is easy when sharing a backfield with players like Skip Patterson and Isaiah Easley, both of whom have before won this distinction. Pardon the pun, but lots of people 5-4 get overlooked, especially in the sport of football. Of course, the teams which would tend to overlook Logan Green aren’t the teams which have played him either. Remember this when looking for players to credit for Henderson County’s going 7-5 this past season making it to the KHSAA’s second round. It wasn’t the 5-11, 205 pound, built-like-a-linebacker, Patterson who led the Colonels in yards gained this past season and it wasn’t the 6-0 and 175 pound Easley either. It was the diminutive, 5-4 and 142 pound, Green whose play proved anything but little. In addition to his duties in the defensive backfield this past season, Green rushed the ball 166 times, gaining 998 yards from scrimmage, and scoring 5 rushing TDs. That is averaging over 6 yards a carry against Class 6A competition the likes of McCracken County and Trinity, in addition to playing Class 5A powers the likes of Christian County and Owensboro Senior High.
The 142 pounder puts in the work in the strength and conditioning program, as he will again this offseason, heading into his own senior year. Logan Green bench presses 190 pounds, squats 315 pounds, and power cleans what we find to be an equally incredible (in light of his body weight) 235 pounds. This would explain how he has the explosiveness to cover the 40 yard dash in a reported 4.69 seconds though running on such short legs. It would also explain why he is so hard to bring down, once he is found, and (at his height) finding him is no easier a task than tackling him. Both Green and Easley will be back in the Colonel backfield in 2019, though Patterson has exhausted his high school eligibility. As long as Henderson County’s backfield has Logan Green in it, the Colonel backfield will be one with which coaches will have to contend and hope to contain.
Congratulations to Logan Green 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.
