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 2021’s more lethal dual threat QBs, particularly in the western end of the commonwealth. Nolan Ford has been at the reigns of Warren East’s offense since he was a freshman.
Ford’s Warren East High School is right down the road from three Independence Bank branches. First, there is the Fairview Avenue Branch, 977 Fairview Avenue; second, and one of our favorites, is the Freedom Square Branch, 1950 Scottsville Road; and third is the Nashville Road Branch located on 2415 Nashville Road all three of which are in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
Go on down and see our friends at either one or, perhaps all three, 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.
Nolan Ford is a name which should be familiar to fans of this site and people who hold themselves out as being knowledgeable about Kentucky High School football. He is one of the better dual-threat guys you’ll find at the QB position.
Ford was 108 for 208 through the air in 2019 for 1,539 yards passing. He threw 14 TD passes and suffered 10 thrown interceptions. That is only half the tale.
Ford was Warren East’s leading rusher in 2019. The then junior signal-caller gained nearly 1,000-yards from scrimmage (924), on 139-carries, with 15-rushing TDs. He also led his team with 92-offensive points scored.
The 6-0, 180-pounder is undeniably among the best pure athletes playing football in the 4A classification’s 2nd-district. If Warren East is to return to its winning ways, going 6-5 in both 2017 and 2018 before finishing 4-7 in 2019, they will need Ford, in a big, big, way, to come through this coming fall.
Congratulations, Nolan Ford, 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, Nathan…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!
