Wright’s efforts have launched a revolution in Henderson County
Jordan Wright (’23) is one of the better kept secrets around the western end of Kentucky. He eclipsed 1,000 yards rushing a year ago and together with backfield mate, Jaheim Williams (’23), comprises one of the more potent rushing attacks anywhere within the 1st District of Kentucky’s 6A classification.Fletcher W.

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 RB prospect from a 6A western-KY power located in Henderson, Kentucky. Today, we feature Jordan Wright, ’23, from Henderson County High.

Garden Street and the other in what is known as The Gardenside Shopping Center (above pictured) with a principal address of 2610 Zion Road both in Henderson, Kentucky. Get on by and visit either of these fine branches today. Discover what makes Independence Bank’s people, products, and services revolutionary in the financial services industry.
Henderson County is certainly no stranger to having backfield talent. Last season, the “ground and pound” 6A power program had two very talented options to whom to hand the football.
Jordan Wright, a ’23 prospect, gained over 1,000 (1,009) yards in 195-carries with 7-TDs while catching 11-passes swinging out of the backfield with a TD-receiving. Wright finished the year as the team’s second leading offensive scorer.
His backfield mate, Jaheim Williams, also a ’23 prospect, gained 754-yards rushing in only 88-carries but had 11-rushing TDs. Williams also caught 11-passes and scored a TD-receving while averaging 12.3 or so yards per reception. Get this, Williams picked a pass in limited defensive duty.
Wright is a guy we expect to see even more carries in ’22 as he has proven himself spectacularly steady, reliable, and productive. Basically, Wright is the kind of player whose performance mirrors the performance rendered daily at Independence Bank!
Jordan Wright is about to have a monster season this coming Fall. You can take that to the proverbial (or even the literal) bank.
Congratulations to Jordan Wright for the Revolutionary Play in ’21 and that which we are sure to experience in ’22 together with earning this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, our friends at Independence Bank.
