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 the Cougars’ and McClean County, Kentucky community’s expectations. We are focusing on the class of 2021, FB/LB, Andrew Munster, from McClean County, Kentucky.
Munster was first awarded this same Player of the Week distinction in January of 2019. He won it a second time in September of 2019, won it again in October of 2019, and now his continued fine play has resulted in his winning it for the fourth time.
It may seem odd, his winning the award for now a fourth time. We believe he may be the award’s only four-timer.
We just couldn’t let his last game as a high school football player pass without distinction. What a player this kid proved himself to be over his very fine career.
Munster’s McClean County High School is approximately 7.9 miles from Calhoun, traveling down KY-136E, in neighboring Livermore, Kentucky, from an Independence Bank branch located on 614 Henton Street. Stop in and see them today.
Munster ended his career with huge numbers. The Herald Leader-Hundred prospect had 16-tackles against Owensboro Catholic in the first-round game, which would (sadly) prove to be his last as a McLean County Cougar. He also carried the football 12 times for 65-yards.
Over the course of his outstanding senior campaign, being shortened by the global pandemic, Munster still led the team in rushing with 515-yards and 3-rushing TDs in only five games of action, first round included. On Defense, he had 76-tackles with 3.5 TFLs, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery.
This kid helped lead his team to a district crown in 2019 and a berth in the regional championship, together with winning 8 of its last 10 games and finishing 8-5. This year, the Cougars were 3-2. They lost to Owensboro Catholic last Friday night, 40-22.
This kid has been some kind of football player over his career. We will miss him at KPGFootball. We can’t imagine how much he will be missed by the Cougar football program.
Congratulations to Andrew Munster from the McClean County High School in Calhoun, 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. We are sure we speak for your friends down at Independence Bank when we tell you, “We’ll miss you. We can’t wait to see what other triumphs your life will hold for you in your future!”
