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, LB, Trace Grenier, 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.
We have sung the praises of the Owensboro Red Devils all season long, even when the Red Devils slipped up and dropped a game to Owensboro Catholic way back on August 31st. Friday night, the Red Devils faced a Class 5A, first district opponent which had been bedeviled it just last season in Owensboro 48-27. However, this is not 2017 and this Red Devil club is nothing with which to trifle. It is pretty well known the Red Devils have both the best nose guard in the 5A classification (Diamond Glover) and one of the best linebackers in Kentucky, in any Classification (Austin Gough), but the 6-0, 215 pound Trace Grenier is a star in his own right. Man, that fact was fully demonstrated Friday in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Grenier registered 7 total tackles against the Colonels, together with 2 tackles for loss and a quarterback sack, to help lead Owensboro to a 42-20 win. Senior High is now 4-2 on the year with four upcoming games (Marshall, Apollo, Graves, and Henderson) one would figure OHS would be able to navigate safely provided the Red Devils remain healthy and play really hard. Come play-off time, this team is not one you will want to see on your team’s schedule.
Congratulations to Trace Grenier 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.
