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 the Bears’ and the Hopkins County community’s expectations. We are focusing on the class of 2019’s Kaison Osbourne from Hopkins County Central located in Madisonville, Kentucky right down the road from the Independence Bank branches located on 1776 North Main Street and 629 East Center Street both in Madisonville, Kentucky.
Kaison Osbourne is a 6-1, 280 pound powerhouse who is headed to the University of the Cumberlands this Fall to play on Saturdays. Osbourne was a punisher in the middle for the Storm, netting 57 tackles from the NG slot his senior year and starting on the Storm’s varsity unit all four years.
We saw Osbourne at the 39th Kentucky High School Powerlifting Championships this Spring and he performed really well. Osbourne hoisted a combined 590-pounds to finish runner-up among the heavyweights.
Now the Powerlifting Championships only test bench press and power clean. Many of the power lifters are quite accomplished in other lifts which just aren’t tested at the State Championships. For instance, Osbourne, who bench presses 325-pounds, also back squats 515-pounds. That is quite an amount of weight and tells you a lot about his explosiveness and power. KPGFootball would suppose those are the type of attributes one would need to get the privilege of playing at the college level in the first place.
Congratulations to Kaison Osbourne 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.
This is F.W. Long reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE!
