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 both the Red Devils’ and the Owensboro community’s expectations. We are focusing on the class of 2020, WR, Imonte Owsley, from Owensboro, Kentucky, whose Owensboro (Senior) High School is right down the road from 3 Independence Bank branches on 2425 Frederica Street, 2465 W. Parrish Avenue, and 3228 KY-54, respectively.
The Red Devils had a lot on the line Friday night as it was vying for the District Title in the first district of the 5A classification. In the way was a Graves County fresh off a defeat of last year’s title holder, Christian County in Hopkinsville the previous Friday. When the Red Devils needed big plays, Owensboro turned to one of its big playmakers and a player we have ranked in our top 30 players, Commonwealth-wide, in the Class of 2020, Imonte Owsley. Owsley struck with rushing TDs against Graves County, one from 60 yards away, one from 63 yards away, and a third, with three minutes left in the first half, from 18 yards away to forge for the Devils a 40-6 lead going into the half-time locker room. With the clock running, the Red Devils would go on to dispatch Graves County 47-6 and win the Class 5A, first district, outright crown. At KPGFootball, we believe this Owensboro team to be the most talented and balanced offensive attack we have seen out of the Senior High School in several years. Remember from where you heard this, but this Owensboro Sr. High squad is a team likely to be poised for a deep playoff run in the upcoming KHSAA State Championships.
Congratulations to Imonte Owsley from the Owensboro (Senior) High School in Owensboro, 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.
