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 former Middle School All-American who is likely about to be crowned a KPGFootball Freshman All-State player. Linsey’s performance exceeded expectations in 2020 for his Owensboro (Senior) High School football team though we predicted last year he would see the lineup his freshman season. Go back and read this article again and see if we didn’t.
Lindsey will be vitally important for the Red Devils going forward. Today we are focusing on hulking, Jak Lindsey, 6-5, 310-pounds, from Owensboro, Kentucky.
Lindsey’s Owensboro (Senior) High School is located right 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.
Jak Lindsey, Owensboro Senior High School, played center and nose-guard for Coach Brown at OMS. Playing for Coach Fallin’s State 5A-Finalists, Lindsey was “moved out” to Offensive Tackle, where he is very likely to stay a while.
Lindsey played in 7-games along the front including starting during the playoff run. Folks, this is 5A football. One has to be darn good to draw the starting assignment on Kroger Field in a 5A championship.
It isn’t like the Red Devils are short on talent. This is a big frame guy with impressive size and length who looks like he will get even bigger as he matures. Lindsey held his own against Jager Burton (UK signee, Frederick Doughlass, 2021) in the semis and was offered the next day by the University of Kentucky.
Lindsey moves well, has explosive power steps, good hand placement, and plays with good leverage for a big-man at his stage of development. He is an athletic big man with great feet and agility with an ample frame which is going to be even more imposing as he matures and adds muscle to his heft, particularly around his core and in his lower half.
Can’t foresee anything other than great things on the horizon for this young front-line, edge protector. He has the explosion, quickness, and agility to even slide inside and play guard at the next level should schools wish it.
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!
