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 who was only credited with playing in 6 of the team’s 11-games in 2019 but really accomplished quite a bit when he was in the game. This Class of 2022 standout will absolutely kill it in 2020 as a junior and, with all the young talent on the Hancock County roster, things are certainly looking up for the Hornets’ program. This week we are focusing on Class of 2022 DL, Jake Frames, who doubles along the offensive front too.
Frame’s Hancock County High School is located just 3.14-miles down the road from an Independence Bank branch located on 225 US Highway 60-East in Hawesville, Kentucky. Go on down and see our friends at Independence Bank and give them both the opportunity and privilege to earn your business and demonstrate what makes them the best in the banking business and the fastest growing financial institution in Kentucky.
You may be wondering why our Hornet is wearing a life-preserver. Well, it is simple…the Hornets have some young talent keeping them “above water.” That talent may prove, in future seasons, to be “life-savers” for the high school football program particularly coming up in 2020.
When we get done with this feature you may be left with the impression Hancock County football stars don’t get the press coverage they deserve. Well, that would probably be accurate. Hancock County, Kentucky is a quaint, small, out-of-the-way area; exactly as the citizens prefer. It is also an area where some fine football gets played.
Hancock County has two of the top 2023-guys in the commonwealth. How many teams can say they are opening any season with its leading passer and rusher from the prior year returning for three more go-arounds?
Cole Dixon led the Hornets in passing as a freshman. Xander Early gained over 800-yards rushing and scored 6 of the team’s 21-rushing TDs as a freshman. Yep, safe to say the future is bright in Hancock County.
However, the Hornets have more young talent than the two “Super-frosh.” Don’t forget a guy who only got in 6 of the team’s 11 varsity games in 2019 but promises to play them all this coming season. Don’t forget Jake Frames.
Frames was very productive in his 6-games of action, defensively. He had 20-tackles, 1 TFL, and forced a fumble. Those numbers project to double at least and more likely increase even well more than that.
On top of what he contributes defensively, Frames also plays along the offensive front. Two-way contributors are key in the 2A classification. Frames will continue with the double-duty, at least we project.
Congratulations to Jake Frames, both for his Revolutionary Play in 2019 and that which is to come in 2020, all of which has earned him this week’s recognition. Go down and see our friends at the fastest growing bank in the commonwealth of Kentucky who owe that growth to the men, women, and revolutionary financial products available for its banking customers. Go down and see our friends at your local 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!
