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 both has and continues to exceed the Cougars’ and McClean County, Kentucky community’s expectations. We are focusing on the class of 2021, FB/LB, Andrew Munster, from McClean County, Kentucky, whose McClean County High School is approximately 7.9 miles from Calhoun, traveling down KY-136E, in neighboring Livermore, Kentucky, from an Independence Bank branch located on 614 Henton Street.
You may or may not remember this, but when we awarded this same honor to Peyton Caraway, on October 14, 2018, we mentioned, in that article, our having nearly awarded the award that week to Andrew Munster. At the time, Munster was coming off a 12 tackle, one tackle for loss, and one sack performance in McLean’s game with Butler County.
Looking back on what this 5-8, 155 pound combination LB/FB accomplished in only his sophomore season, KPGFootball can only relate this is another example of our possibly “missing” one when we published our 2021 Sophomore All-State Football team. In our defense, LB is 2021’s deepest and most accomplished position. Like we always say, we never contend our All-State list to contain every All-State caliber player in the Commonwealth. What we maintain (and still believe) is that the players we do honor on the team are all deserving of the recognition.
Munster had a monster year, which we hope you recognize the cool reference we are making here to the old black and white television show from the 60s. Andrew, in only 12 games of action, had 151 total tackles (62 solos, 89 assists) with 12 TFLs and 4 QB sacks. Andrew additionally forced two fumbles and recovered two fumbles to make himself one of the defense’s most productive and effective players on an 8-4 football team. You know, not every sophomore can do that!
Congratulations to Andrew Munster from the McClean County High School in Calhoun, Kentucky 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.
This is Fletcher Long reporting for KPGFootball reminding you to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE!
