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 who, quite frankly, is one of the Class of 2022’s more explosive and productive defensive players in his district. This week we are focusing on Class of 2022, defensive phenom, Montrell Rogers.
Rogers’ Calloway County High School is right down the road from two Independence Bank branches. First, there is the branch located on 507 North 12th Street and then the one on 721 South 12th Street. Both of these branches are centrally located and easy to find for all Murray residents including those working, cheering on, or attending Calloway County High School.
Go on down and see our friends at either one, or perhaps both, of these Independence Bank locations. Give them both the opportunity and privilege to earn your business. Let them demonstrate to you what makes Independence Bank the best in the banking business and the fastest growing financial institution in Kentucky.
Calloway County is a team which made greater strides last year than their 1-10 mark would suggest. The team’s lone win came against first district foe, Hopkinsville County Central, 69-35. That doesn’t tell the whole tale.
Last year, in the playoffs’ first round, the lakers, the district’s 4th seed, nearly pulled off a real rarity in KHSAA football. They nearly took down the district 1st-seed and eventual runner-up, Hoptown, and ON THE ROAD.
The Tigers narrowly escaped 28-20. However, if you’re a Laker fan, you have to be encouraged with what you saw in that game. It bodes well for 2020.
Montrell Rogers had a whale of a sophomore season. He nearly made our KPGFootball sophomore all-state team, receiving a nomination for the team and quite a few votes.
Rogers had 80-tackles, 5-TFLs, 1-QB sack, a FF, and a pair of FRs. Those numbers, impressive for any sophomore, is made more impressive by being accumulated against the likes of Madisonville North-Hopkins, Logan County, and Hoptown.
Congratulations, Montrell Rogers, both for your Revolutionary Play in 2019 and that which is to come in 2020, all of which has earned you this week’s recognition. Go out there and show them of what you’re made, Montrell…your friends at Independence Bank will all be watching!
For the rest of you reading this, go see our friends at the fastest growing bank in the commonwealth of Kentucky who owe that growth to the men, women, and revolutionary financial products available for its banking customers. Go down and see our friends at your local 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!
