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 (Pryor Lamb, 2023) who, quite frankly, is one of 2023’s very best dual-threat QBs in both the Bluegrass and the nation according to an outlet, QB Hit List, which regularly ranks and evaluates the position. This particular prospect plays for a head coach at McCracken (Marc Clark) who has a very solid reputation for developing top-flight, high-school, quarterbacking talent. Besides that, Clark also runs an offense tailored toward both offensive and skill player production.
Lamb’s McCracken County High School is right down the road from three Independence Bank branches. One is at 3143 Broadway Street, another is at 2711 New Hold Road; and still a third is located on 3312 Long Oak Road. Get on by and see our friends at these three branches and thank them for their undying support for area middle and high school football players.
Give them the opportunity and privilege to earn your business. Let them demonstrate to you what makes Independence Bank the best in the banking business and the fastest growing financial institution in Kentucky.
Lamb, like our Migua Beef Jerky “Protein-packed Performer of the Week” Max Gibbs, has returned from the QB Hit List combine where Lamb was awarded 2 and 1/2 out of a possible 5-stars. Being a ’23 prospect, that is right impressive.
The 6-1, 191-pounder, who has good size and frame for a dual-threat guy, scored 86.96 out of a possible 100 points on the QBHL rating system. He came away ranked the 148th highest rated dual-threat QB in the country and among Kentucky’s highest rated players at his position.
Lamb was super productive (especially for a sophomore starter on a 6A roster) on the field of play last season, though his body of work was limited by the global health crisis. McCracken, which plays at Kentucky’s highest-level of competition, finished the year 6-3. One of the wins was by forfeit (pandemic-related) so Lamb only got 8-games of run under the Friday night lights.
Among the team’s three defeats were losses to Bowling Green Senior High (5A State Champion in 2020) and to Louisville Male (Class 6A State Finalist). The third loss was 21-14 to a tough Henderson County squad.
Henderson County is annually among the highest in-district hurdles McCracken yearly has to broach. That contest generally gets reduced to a battle for first-district, home field seeding for the playoffs. The Mustangs by and large are the perennial district champions.
Lamb in only 8-games, passed for 1,108 yards with 14-touchdowns. He was 92 for 164 through the air, suffered only 6-picks for a 2.33:1 TD to Int. ratio, and help lead the offense to 261-points scored, and 2,672 yards of total offense.
News flash…he’s only going to get better. Good news for McCracken; not so much for the remainder of the first-district.
Congratulations to Pryor Lamb for his Revolutionary Play which has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky…your friends at Independence Bank.
