’25 RB takes home this award for the second time
The Edens kid had just came off a superlative freshman campaign when we awarded this to him the first time on March 25, 2022. We predicted, “Edens will be heavily counted on early and often over the course of his sophomore year.” Talk about nailing a prediction: Edens just keeps getting better and better and the same is true of Webster County’s varsity football team. If Edens continues on his present performance arc, we will be writing plenty more features on this young RB from here until NSD (National Signing Day).Fletcher W.

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 a young trenchman who capitalized on a fine freshman year which saw him get run in 10-varsity games over the course of his inaugural season. Today we honor JJ Sheridan, ’26 OL/DL, from Dixon, Kentucky’s Webster County High.
Webster County High is close to three separate Independence Bank locations in and around the Webster County area. There is one in Beech Grove, Kentucky located in the Marathon Gas Station on 305 Beech Grove Street. There is one in Sebree, Kentucky on 308 US Highway 41 (today’s featured branch). There is a third branch located in Providence, Kentucky on 298 US-41-Alternate.
Get on by the Webster County 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 literally don’t know when the excitement and buzz around the Trojan football program has been any more enthusiastic than it is presently. Perhaps the last time it was this intense, the great Cyrus Dossett was roaming the defensive secondary.
There are a ton of fans of the Trojan program convinced the program is both on the come-up and about to experience nearly unprecedented success. Last year the Trojans were 4-7 but were just a few scores away from 7-4.
Plenty of young talent was on the field in ’22. None were any younger nor much more involved than JJ Sheridan. Sheridan is a ’26 two way, trenchman who contributed to the Webster offensive and defensive finished product.
Last year, Sheridan resisted 9-tackles from his DL slot. Offensively, he was regularly in the rotation on the offensive front. While his contributions appear modest, you have to compare him to his classmates. Not too many freshmen across Kentucky were logging varsity snaps much less factoring into tackling statistics.
Now the Webster squad is working hard this offseason to bring its team power, strength, and explosion to the levels requisite to challenging for district supremacy. It will be a tall task, as McLean, Trigg, Hancock, and Hopkins County Central are hanging around this newly formed district with Central realigning down to 3A from 4A, District-1.
We had the opportunity to see Webster in action battling new district foe Hopkins County Central in Morton’s Gap just a few weeks ago. The Trojans are looking the part of 3A district contender but the Storm has both the bodies and numbers to make it mighty tough on anybody in 3A to compete.
We were impressed with the displays of power, strength, and explosion. We would be shocked if the Trojans weren’t making things mighty “dicey” this coming season around the classification and its newly aligned district.
Congratulations to JJ Sheridan for his “Revolutionary Play” this season and that which is to come next year, his sophomore season. We anticipate his performances to come, together with what he has done to date, have easily earned this magnificent freshman OL/DL 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!
