’24 RB looking to carry his team to program’s eighth (8th) championship
Huddleston is one of the more unsung heroes of the ’22 season and one of the best RB’s, commonwealth wide, in the ’24 graduating class. Huddleston has lead the Purples this year in rushing yards from scrimmage, carries, TD’s scored rushing, and scoring. He has also been very productive rolling out of the backfield and into patterns for his QB. If the Purples are to win title number eight (8) Saturday night, this is one of the main pistons in the Purple engine which simply must be firing.Fletcher W. Long, Chief Scout, KPGFootball
There is no better time than the present to anoint another Independence Bank, Revolutionary 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.
Today we honor maybe the best RB in the entire commonwealth of Kentucky’s graduating class of 2024. This cat has been flourishing playing against the best teams Kentucky’s higher classifications can muster. Today we honor Javon Huddleston from Bowling Green, Kentucky’s Senior High.
Bowling Green Senior High is located just down the road from three well-respected Bowling Green area Independence Bank branches. It would be literally impossible to pick amongst these three branches to feature just one.
There is a branch called “Nashville Road” and it is located on 2415 Nashville Road. There is a branch referred to as “Freedom Square” and it is located on 1950 Scottsville Road. There is a branch named “Fairview Avenue” and it may be found on 877 Fairview Avenue.
All three of these fine branches are located in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Get on by the Bowling Green area locations today and see our friends. Learn why Independence Bank‘s products, people, and services have started a revolution in the Kentucky banking industry.
We always attempt to feature players in areas where we have branches to highlight the role our bank plays in developing the communities it serves. This weekend is “Championship Weekend” and Bowling Green has a shot at its 8th-title.
This week will be no easy task for the Purples from Bowling Green’s Senior High. It will be the second consecutive week the Purples will have to match an undefeated squad.
Last week the Purples were able to survive a trip to Pulaski, Kentucky playing Southwestern High which entered the game 13-0. Of course Southwestern exited the game 13-1, that’s how BG got to Saturday night.
Will the Purples be able to solve a previously unsolved riddle in 14-0 Frederick Douglass? If they are, they will rely heavily on the ground game.
Huddleston, a week ago, carried the ball 13-times and gained 142-yards, scoring a pair of TD’s. He also led his team in scoring in the semis, accounting for 12 of the team’s 47-points.
If you have been following the Purples, this outburst from Huddleston is certainly nothing new. On the season, Huddleston has gained 1,156-yards on 136-carries with 16-rushing TD’s.
Huddleston has also caught 20-balls, swinging out of the backfield, three (3) of which were for TD’s, gaining 304-yards receiving in the offing. Huddleston has scored 114-points on the year, of the team’s 489, to lead the squad in scoring, averaging 9.5 points a night.
Coach Mark Spader will be keen to win the program’s eighth title, his second. Spader was at the helm in ’20 to win his first title as the head man. He was on the staffs which won the titles in ’11, ’12, ’13, ’15, and ’16 working for Kevin Wallace, now the head man at St. Xavier in Louisville.
Congratulations to Javen Huddleston for his “Revolutionary Play” last week in the semis and that which is still to come in Saturday night’s Title matchup with Frederick Douglass. We anticipate his performances have easily earned this magnificent ’24 RB this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, our 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!
