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 whose performance exceeded the Maroons’ and the Madisonville, Kentucky community’s expectations. We are focusing on the class of 2020’s Jordan Vaughn from Madisonville North-Hopkins High School located in Madisonville, Kentucky right down the road from Independence Bank branches located on 1776 North Main Street and 629 East Center Street respectively.
Jordan Vaughn is a 6-4, 265-pound powerhouse who is being heavily recruited to play offensive line at the next level and someone with the frame, bend, and athleticism to play DE in college too. Vaughn already has quite a few offers to consider when he gets done with the business at hand, which is trying to finish off his career with a Class 4A State Football Championship. We have long said, here at KPGFootball, that we think him to be one of Kentucky High School football’s elite edge-protectors in his or any class. To date, he has always made us look pretty smart.
Jordan’s Maroons will be in Paintsville, Kentucky tonight to attempt to end the season of Johnson Central High School. The Eagles are a tough-out, having played for the title in the 4A classification the last 4 years straight, winning one. There will be plenty of talent along Jim Matney’s Eagle front tonight, so Vaughn and his mates will “get a good look.”
Madisonville North-Hopkins has leaned on the running game this year and with the front-five it boasts, it isn’t hard to figure why. The Maroons have gained 3,5140-yards on the ground this year in 428-carries. They have scored 40-rushing TDs and averaged 270.3-yards per outing on the year, averaging 3.1-rushing TDs per football game. It will be hard to imagine the Maroons advancing without a similar effort running the football tonight in Paintsville. Good thing the Maroons have the lines of scrimmage they boast.
Congratulations to Jordan Vaughn for his Revolutionary Play which has earned this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky…your friends at Independence Bank.
