There is no better time than the present to anoint anotherIndependence 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 ofrevolutionary service to their respective football teams which has made Independence Bank unique and special in the banking industry. Independence Bank has a goal of achievingeveryday excellence,and this week we are focusing on a player whose performance both has and continues to exceed both the Owensboro Catholic and Owensboro community’s expectations.
Today, we are focusing on Class of 2021, LB, Clayton Lewis from Owensboro Catholic. Lewis attends Owensboro Catholic which is located right down the road from 3 Independence Bank branches on 2425 Frederica Street, 2465 W. Parrish Avenue, and 3228 KY-54, respectively.
Clayton Lewis came to Owensboro Catholic to play QB. However, what is a 2021 QB supposed to do when the Class of 2020 QB, Drew Hartz, is on the depth chart in front of him and also considered one of the very best QB’s in his class in Kentucky not named either Reed Lanter or Beau Allen? One would assume he should adapt and overcome. Well, that is exactly what this “Ace” did in 2018.
Lewis switched over to play LB and primarily contributed on special teams in 2018 for a Class 2A program pretty much considered an elite program in its classification on its side of Kentucky. Getting any run at all on Friday nights is a noteworthy accomplishment at a program like Owensboro Catholic when one is only a sophomore. So, the contributions Lewis made to the Aces’ season, while still a 10th grader, are worthy of being memorialized.
Going forward, the Aces know, should anything unforeseen occur to Drew Hartz, that they have an “Ace in the hole,” if you will, whom has played QB in its system previously. Until then, Lewis will be making himself useful for his team at whatever slot on the field the staff feels his talents will be best utilized. That, my friends, is called “team work” and Independence Bank is happy to promote members of teams whom exhibit such laudable values.
Congratulations to Clayton Lewis from Owensboro Catholic 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.
