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.
Today we honor ’23 RB, Lajuan McAdoo, from Madisonville North-Hopkins High School. McAdoo’s North-Hopkins High is not too far from a couple of famous branches in the Independence Bank family.
There is a branch located on 1776 North Main Street and another one on 629 East Center Street. Of course, both branches are located in or around the Madisonville, Kentucky community.
Lajuan MaAdoo’s North-Hopkins Maroons were facing last week, arguably, the hottest team in the Kentucky’s tough 4A classification’s first district. North Hopkins came into the game 5-2 and was getting regular votes in the AP’s weekly top-10.
Most had already written in a Storm victory over the Maroons. We were among the entities believing the Storm would move into Hopkinsville’s Stadium of Champions tonight staked to a 6-2 mark.
However, that is why the games get played on the field. The Maroons, who have owned the Storm through the years in this rivalry, would own the Storm for another night.
Madisonville North-Hopkins ground out 352-rushing yards in 55-carries with 4-ground scores in route to routing the cross-town rivals, 41-7. Absolutely no one predicted the game would finish with anywhere close to that margin distancing the two teams, least of all we.
Much of it was owing to the efforts of the Maroons’ junior running-back, Lajuan McAdoo. McAdoo (’23) carried it 31-times against Hopkins County Central and gained 247-yards and scored a rushing TD.
Chase Price scored a pair of TDs rushing to help matters along. Anias Mitchell scored the 4th rushing TD to go along with his 9 for 18 passing effort which a massed 201 yards with a pair of passing TDs.
Congratulations to Lujaun McAdoo for his Revolutionary Play which has earned this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky…your friends at Independence Bank.
