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, quite frankly, is one of the Class of 2023’s more highly coveted players, particularly on defense where he plays free safety. Lofton Howard had quite the game against Logan County last Friday night particularly since he has just started his sophomore year.
Howard’s Greenwood High School is right down the road from three Independence Bank branches. First, there is the Fairview Avenue Branch, 977 Fairview Avenue; second, and one of our favorites, is the Freedom Square Branch, 1950 Scottsville Road; and third is the Nashville Road Branch located on 2415 Nashville Road all three of which are in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
Go on down and see our friends at either one or, perhaps all three, of these Independence Bank locations. Give them both 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.
Lofton Howard is a 6-3, 195-pound, Class of 2023 prospect, who has the frame, length, and athleticism to make a big splash either at QB, where he deploys offensively when he eventually works himself up the depth chart, or at FS, where his play really shone this past Friday night against Logan County.
Greenwood, 2-0 on the young season, travels to play Barren County tonight in a game the Gators have to feel like they can win and get to 3-0. Barren County is 1-1on the year, with a loss to Class 2A, Hancock County, 28-8, and a win over 2A, Monroe County to open the season.
A visit from the Class 5A, Gators, maybe a tough encounter for Barren County. This would be particularly true provided Lofton Howard and his teammates play at the level they achieved against Class 4A, first-district powerhouse, Logan County.
Against Logan County, Howard registered 20-tackles, two of which were behind the line of scrimmage. Mr. Howard may be a name some of you football fans out there should consider adding to your must see list of instate players as that is an incredible amount of tackles for a sophomore on a 5A roster to register in his second game of the sophomore year.
Congratulations, Lofton Howard, both for your Revolutionary Play in 2019 and that which is to come in 2020, all of which has earned you this week’s recognition. Go out there and show them of what you’re made, Lofton…your friends at Independence Bank will all be watching!
For the rest of you reading this, go see our friends at the fastest growing bank in the commonwealth of Kentucky who owe that growth to the men, women, and revolutionary financial products available for its banking customers. Go down and see our friends at your local 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!
