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 former Middle School All-American football player whose performance exceeded expectations in 2020 for his Owensboro High School football team and who, we have just learned, is now a freshman All-American to go along with the similar honor he won in middle school.
We are focusing on an offensive lineman who, going forward, figures to be as vitally important to the Owensboro (Senior) High School’s football success as he was over his freshman campaign, or even more so. Today we are focusing on a newly crowned, Freshman (first-team) All-American, Jak Lindsey (right) from Owensboro, Kentucky.
Lindsey’s Owensboro (Senior) High School is located 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.
When last Jak Lindsey was awarded this particular distinction he was headed to Dallas, Texas to play in the Bret Cooper Junior Academic All-American Game. That game is a prestigious event for middle school football players.
We forecasted in that article this kid had “big things” on his horizon and was a likely starter for the Red Devils as soon as he hit high school. Twenty-twenty (2020) was his freshman season for the Red Devils. Lindsey started along the offensive front. The Red Devils went all the way to Lexington, Kentucky to play for the Class 5A title. How did we do?
Lindsey is 6-5, 310-pounds. The Class of 2024 lineman is already fielding Division 1, Power 5 offers to play collegiately.
In addition to all of that, he has been selected to the Max Preps Freshman All-American First-Team Offense. He has now won this award for the second time.
We have a word for that in the world of recruiting. We like to call that a “Hot Week.”
There’s a word for our prowess predicting the future success of middle school stars as they matriculate to high school. That word is “clairvoyance.”
Congratulations to Jak Lindsey, both for his Revolutionary Play in 2020 and that which is to come in 2021, all of which has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, your friends at 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!
