McLean’s Brodie Cline (’24) is the Revolutionary Player of the Week. @1776Bank Revolutionary @McLeanSportsNet @McLeanCoHS @mcleancohs1 @minguabeefjerky @evans02_mike @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

Independence Bank has started a revolution in the financial services industry

Not too many players impacted the team’s bottom line as profoundly as Cline in ’23

Brodie Cline is the type multi-faceted talent which goes unnoticed far too much in Kentucky High School athletics. First, he is a 6’3,” 170-pound QB/DB who was absolutely essential to the 17-wins his program notched the previous two seasons. Secondly, on top of all of that, his is a double-digit averaging hardwood star and a football player who contributed to the team’s bottom line in multiple phases. There has got to be a college program around Kentucky wise enough to see the growth potential and talent of a guy like Brodie Cline.

There is no better time than the present to anoint another Independence Bank, Revolutionary 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 a ’24 QB/DB many, around the commonwealth, believe to be among the better athletes in all of western Kentucky. This week’s recipient had an incredibly productive ’23 season which followed a very fine ’22 season; the culmination of which resulted in a 17-6 combined mark (9-3 in ’22 as a 2A program; 8-3 in ’23 as a 3A program). This week we, once again, honor the play of Brodie Cline, ’24 QB/DB, from Calhoun, Kentucky’s McLean County High.

Cline was a senior at McLean County High School in ’23. McLean County High is only 10 minutes away from today’s featured branch in Livermore, Kentucky. 

The Livermore branch (below pictured) is 7.9-miles down KY-136 E from Cline’s McLean County High School on 614 Henton Street.

Go on by there and see our friends at Independence Bank today and tell them you appreciate their supporting the fine student athletes in the areas where they do business. Learn why Independence Bank‘s products, people, and services have started a revolution in the Kentucky banking industry. 

Brodie Cline is a guy who was a real threat to make the Small-School All-State Football Team as an “Athlete.” There was good reason for this.

Cline threw for 738-yards and 7-TDs running an offense which doesn’t much favor the forward pass. Cline gained 759-yards rushing and scored 11-TDs over the ground. Cline was third in scoring (84-points) and all of that is just what he did on offense.

Defensively, Cline was one of the Cougar’s better defenders. Cline registered 44-tackles, 3-TFLs, 1-FF, 1-FR, 4-INTs with 78-IRNYs.

Cline, in ’23, was the ball club’s leading passer (yards and TDs) and leading pass defender (INTs & IRNYs)

McLean finished second in its district behind 3A powerhouse Union County. However, Union is one of the best programs in all of Kentucky at its level of play and McLean’s dropping the game to the Braves, in September in Morganfield by the score of 42-30, signals the gap between the two programs may be closing.

Putting athletes like Brodie Cline on the field is the reason the Cougars appear to be catching the Braves. That’s our take anyway…
