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 from Male High School in Louisville, Kentucky who was one of the leaders of the Bulldogs defense in 2020. They call him “Shizz” and we call him a beast.
Shizz is sure to come out storming in ’21 and we aren’t promising safe passage to anyone getting in his way. Jayshawne “Shizz” Monroe is @JayshawneM32 on Twitter and that’s for you college coaches out there in need of tough, leveraged, and nasty interior DL help; which is everybody, right?
Monroe’s Louisville Male High School is not too far from the famous St. Matthews Square branch of Independence Bank. St. Matthews Square is on 3901 Shelbyville Road in Louisville. 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.
Jayshawne is a kid we have watched with keen interest since he was in middle school and a mainstay on the Kentucky Future Stars team. Simply put, playing in the middle of one of Kentucky’s premier programs, at its largest classification of competition (6A), the Shizz is a problem for opposing interior offensive fronts.
Monroe is listed at 5-10, 270-pounds. We believe he may be a bit taller than than 5-10, and his lower half weighs 270-pounds (we think anyway). Translation, you can’t get up under Shizz to move Monroe anywhere, even were you man enough to make the attempt.
He’s been described as beastly strong by many around Kentucky. Yeah, we’ll go along with that. He runs very well too.
We have seen Monroe timed as fast as 5-flat in the 40-yard dash. We have seen his shuttle timed in the extremely low 4’s with one registered time being a 4.0.
The shuttle tells you more about a prospect’s athleticism than it does his speed. That is why it is referred to by scouts as the “pro-agility shuttle.” If Monroe can shuttle at 4-flat or thereabouts, weighing 270-pounds, and only be 5-10; that would mean his change of direction speed, agility, and athleticism are all off the charts.
Let’s talk about those “measurables.” Before we discuss it; however, we’ll let you get your offensive center and quarterback up off of the ground first.
Congratulations to Jayshawne Monroe, for his Revolutionary Play in 2020 and we can’t wait to see what he might do this coming Fall in ’21, 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!
