The ‘Price’ is about right for some lucky HS program in Louisville
It is difficult to exactly determine how a kid’s frame might finish. This is doubly true when the prospect is entering 9th-grade in the upcoming Fall. Now, we never said it was impossible.HB Lyon, Scouting Division, KPGFootball
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 guy many, around the commonwealth, believe to be among the premier WR’s/DB’s in the ’27 graduating class. This ’27 prospect has shown himself to be one of the more versatile and well-rounded athletes in the Derby City. Today we feature Noah Price, from Louisville, Kentucky’s Jefferson County Traditional Middle School.
Jefferson County Traditional Middle School (JCTMS) is located just down the road from two Louisville area Independence Bank branches. The featured branch today is the one located on St. Matthews Square (pictured) on 3901 Shelbyville Road. We also have a branch located on 1900 Colonel Sanders Lane both in Louisville-proper.
Get on by the Louisville area locations today and see our friends. Learn why Independence Bank‘s products, people, and services have started a revolution in the Kentucky banking industry.
How good is Noah Price exactly? As we approach Future Stars this coming Summer, and our annual tilt with Tennessee, that is a question many area coaches will be studying in both states we would expect.
Louisville, Kentucky produces quite a bit of athletic talent. If you are familiar with the “lay of the land,” so does JCTMS’s Centurion football program.
Not sure how many of you remember this, but Wisconsin’s Vinny Anthony (Male High) was a JCTMS man prior to his becoming an All-Stater in high school for Louisville’s Male High. Anthony’s turning heads around the FBS, Big-10 Conference (Power 5), so that sort of speaks for itself.
Price is a WR/DB combo guy who is accustomed to never leaving the playing surface. This is common at the MS level.
Depending on where he goes to play in HS (and we’re hearing duPont Manual), he shouldn’t expect two-way deployment when he hits the field on Friday nights.
We like the kid’s frame, though it is far from finished. He has a long, slender neck, narrow shoulders, and long appendages. That generally spells length and height.
We can tell you this, Price played well enough to general highlights. That says quite a bit.
Price runs well, is quick in space, and runs precise routes easily able to separate from defenders. Price has soft hands and he extends to catch balls away from his body well.
We maintain his play this past year easily earned this magnificent eighth-grader this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, our friends at Independence Bank.
This is Fletcher W. Long, reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron, reminding you to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE!
