In what is becoming somewhat common place, I am publishing early owing to the fact that, tomorrow, I will be covering TN Gridiron Scouting at the Tennessee Future Stars combine. 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 both the Crimsons and the Louisville community’s expectations. We are focusing on a Class of 2021, potential two-way lineman, in 6-0, 260 pound Evan Embry-Fisher. As mentioned in the preceding sentence, the Revolutionary Player of the Week is Evan Embry-Fisher from Louisville duPont Manual High School.
Evan Embry-Fisher is a 6’0″ 260 pound interior offensive lineman who plays the position with the nasty disposition of a defensive lineman. Evan, whom I knew as just “Embry” but, according to Hudl, has added a “Fisher” somewhere along the way, was one of the main horses which pulled Newburg Middle School to a Division I State Middle School Football Championship in 2016. Evan was selected to the East-West Kentucky All-State Classic as an 8th grader where he helped anchor an Offensive Line which saw its RB win Player of the Game, which always bodes well for the big-uglies. Embry is a kid who hasn’t really been out on the combine circuit, but if he had been, there is no telling how many plaudits he would have garnered. This is a player, as much as any on the Crimson roster, I expect to break-out this coming season.
I do want to tell you my favorite Evan Embry-Fisher story. At the East-West KY game in 2016, Evan, rapt in emotion, and upset he had missed an assignment upfront, was walking around the field punching his helmet. The referee called a timeout and walked him to his position coach (yours truly) on the sideline and asked if he could calm him down. That is a perfect example of the fire with which he plays. Embry-Fisher is intense, emotional, and a total beast on the field and off of it looks like he should be on the Chess team.
Anyway, congratulations to Evan Embry-Fisher 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.
