I want to be perfectly clear here; what Kasey Boone was able to do in ’21, stepping in for the departed Gavin Wimsatt the way he did and rendering an All-State worthy performance, was the “feel good, incredible” story of last season.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 a player who some may claim rescued the Red Devils from a tough spot a year ago and enters this Fall firmly entrenched in his position. Today we are featuring ’23 QB, Kasey Boone, from Owensboro’s Senior High School.
Boone’s performance exceeded reasonable expectations in 2021 for his Red Devils. Boone will be heavily counted on early and often over the course of his senior year to continue the fine play Boone exhibited last season. Boone’s Owensboro Senior High School is located just down the road from three (3) Owensboro-area Independence Bank branches.
One of the branches is locked at 2425 Frederica Street. Another is located on 3228 KY-54. A third is located on 2465 West Parrish Avenue and all three of them in Owensboro, Kentucky. Get on by and visit our fine branch today and discover what makes Independence Bank’s people, products, and services revolutionary in the financial services industry.
Kasey Boone entered the year positioned behind the commonwealth’s highest rated QB in Gavin Wimsatt. Wimsatt, who was committed to Rutgers University, threw for 583-yards and 6-TDs, running for another 131-yards and 2-TDs, in his three games of action.
The Red Devils were 2-1 with Wimsatt at the helm. Wimsatt bid his team adieu and enrolled early in New Brunswick, New Jersey and finished the year a Scarlet Knight.
In stepped Kasey Boone, a ’23 prospect. The Devils were in a bit of a tough spot and in need of a hero. The team got a Herculean effort from its junior signal-caller.
We would contend Boone’s performance was All-State caliber. In his 11-games, during which the Red Devils were 10-1, Boone passed for 1,430-yards and 23-TDs.
Boone rushed for another TD. Most importantly, Boone captained the Red Devils to the 5A semis where they lost to Frederick Douglass in Lexington, finishing 12-2 on the season.
Men and women have written epic poems about less impressive efforts. Ask Homer.
Congratulations to Kasey Boone, both for his Revolutionary Play in 2021 and that which is to come in 2022, all of which has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, our friends at Independence Bank.
