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 2020, SB/WR, Landon Capps, from McClean County, Kentucky.
We want to begin by saying Capps has won this particular award prior to now. If he continues to perform like he did in round one of the KHSAA football playoffs, he just might start winning it every week.
In 2018, Capps was certainly a solid player. The then Junior gained 587 yards rushing and scored 7 rushing TDs while carrying the football 55 times and averaging over 10 yards an attempt. Capps also caught 4 passes for 107 yards receiving from out of the backfield and accounted for 48 of the team’s 400 total points.
Defensively, in 2018, Capps collected 23 tackles, had 3 TFLs, and collected a QB sack, along the way. We were right to predict when giving him this award the last time, in January of 2019, that coach Zach Wagner would be counting on a lot more of what Capps gave him in 2018 for his team to continue to fare well in the Class 2A’s second district.
Nostradamus couldn’t possibly have forecast what the kid would do against Hancock County last Friday night in round one. We can tell you this, it is why McLean will be playing Owensboro Catholic this coming Friday night with District-level hardware on the line.
Landon Capps, all 5-9 and 160-pounds of him, gained 270-rushing yards on 14 rushes with 4 rushing TDs to practically beat Hancock County alone (36-6). In the biggest game of the year up to that time, Capps came through with his biggest single-game performance of the season. That is why that kid is such a great, high-school, football player.
Congratulations to Landon Capps 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 Coach HB Lyon, reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron and reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT!
