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 exceeded expectations in 2019 and who will be vitally important to the Aces’ success in 2020. Today, we are focusing on Class of 2021, RB, Dre Thruston from Owensboro Catholic High School.
Thruston’s Owensboro Catholic High School is located right down the road from 3 Independence Bank branches on 2425 Frederica Street, 2465 W. Parrish Avenue, and 3228 KY-54, respectively. Get on by and visit the most rapidly growing bank in the commonwealth of Kentucky, Independence Bank. Independence Bank has started a revolution in the banking industry.
The Aces are graduating one of the finest QBs to have ever played there. Come to think of it, he’s one of the finest HS QBs to have played anywhere.
How will the Aces replace Drew Hatz? The signal caller completed 246 passes of his 348 attempts in 2019 for 4,173 passing yards with 57-aerial TD throws with only 5 thrown interceptions. Man, that’s a mouthful.
One thing the Aces could do is run it more frequently next season. Dre Thruston, a 2021 prospect, was more than ample running the football in 2019 when called given the opportunity. Of course, he will have to carry it way more than the 60-times he toted it in 2019.
Over the course of his junior year, Thruston gained 730-yards from scrimmage in those 60-carries, averaging 12.17 or so yards every attempt. Thruston also had 6 rushing TDs, not too shabby with only 60 attempts. Thruston will be counted on heavily as a senior for the Aces to continue to enjoy its seemingly annual mastery of the 2A classification’s, 2nd district.
Dre Thruston’s role will certainly increase over the 2020 season from what was expected of him in 2019. We are sure this prospect is up to that challenge.
Congratulations to Dre Thruston, both for his Revolutionary Play in 2019 and that which is to come in 2020, all of which has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, your friends at 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!
