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 Red Devils and Owensboro community’s expectations.
Today, we are focusing on the Bret Cooper Junior All-American and now a member of the US National Select team also known affectionately as “Team USA.” Team USA is set to do battle in Canton, Ohio this weekend. Sahvon Hines is prominently in the play-plans for the Team USA coaches.
Hines played football in 2018 for Coach Greg Brown at Owensboro Junior High and is set to attend OHS located right down the road from 3 Independence Bank branches on 2425 Frederica Street, 2465 W. Parrish Avenue, and 3228 KY-54, respectively.
Hines, when we last measured him, was a 6-1 and 210-pound football player selected last summer to Team Kentucky Future Stars. He projects as a future lineman who can play defensively or offensively. Hines is expected to letter, if not start, at Class 5A, Owensboro Senior High School next year as a freshman!
Hines can best be described as an active player, with violent hands, and quick get off, possessing upper-level technique. Hines is the kind of player commonly referenced by defensive coaches as a gapper in that he can jump a gap and be through to the backfield before the o-lineman charged with blocking him can even get out of his stance.
Unlike some gappers, he has enough led in his back-side to sit, play read, and shed the lineman and get to the football once located. Hines has all the tools one would look for in a star, high-school down-lineman.
Congratulations to Sahvron Hines from Owensboro, Kentucky for his Revolutionary Play earning him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky…your friends at Independence Bank.
