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 Owensboro Apollo and Owensboro community’s expectations. Today, we are focusing on Class of 2020, OLB, Kobe Skortz (@KobeSkortz on Twitter) from Owensboro Sr. High School.
Coach Jayson M. Fallin’s Sr. High Red Devils are 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.
Owensboro is 3-1 with a date at Daviess County tonight to go to 4-1. The scary part about all of this is the Red Devils have been without 4-starters all this time, including first Team AP All-State LB, Austin Gough, and an All-State candidate at RB in Imonte Owsley.
You would have forgiven the Red Devils had they panicked. Yet, entering the game with Daviess County this evening, they are 3-1 with an away game against Class 6A, District 1, Daviess County standing between them and winning four of the first five contests. Injuries aside, the Red Devils have been in every AP, weekly top-10 poll so far in 2019 for the 5A classification.
With Austin Gough’ absence, Gough pictured to Skortz’ right in the picture affixed to this article, Skortz has admirably picked up some slack. He leads the Red Devils defensive with 17 tackles through the first four games and has also registered 5 tackles behind the line of scrimmage and 3 QB sacks. Eleven of Skortz’s 17 tackles on the year have been solos. This bodes well in a few weeks when the Red Devils get Gough back from off the injured reserve and put him back at his usual insider LB slot next to Skortz.
Congratulations to Kobe Skortz for his Revolutionary Play which has earned this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky…your friends at Independence Bank.
