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 two brothers who are proving to be among the marquee players at their respective positions. Both Gage Sokolowski (’23) and older brother Rowdy Sokolowski (’22) from Murray High School performed last Friday night well in excess of any reasonable expectation for the Murray High School Tigers in its big 56-32 win over Class 5A, Christian County, from Hopkinsville, Kentucky.
This brothers Sokolowski are vitally important to the Murray High School’s prospects for the remainder of the ’21 high school football season. With players like Sokolowski hitting their strides, this Murray High team may prove quite troublesome for Mighty Mayfield as the two look likely to battle the other for district supremacy.
The Sokolowski pair’s Murray High School is located right down the road from a pair of Independence Bank branches. One of the branches is located at 507 North 12th Street in Murray and the other is on 721 South 12th Street. 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.
Both Gage Sokolowski (’23) and brother, Rowdy Sokolowski (’22), had quite the nights against the Christian County “run box” in its game last Friday night. Gage rushed for 187-yards in 27-carries with 2-rushing TDs while Rowdy gained 176-yards on 15-rushing attempts and 2-rushing TDs of his own.
Kainoa Olive (’24) hit pay dirt every carry. Olive carried it three times, gained 89-yards, and scored 3-rushing TDs. On the night the Murray Tigers rushed the football 58-times for 536-yards rushing and 7-TDs.
This type effort must continue for the Tigers to continue to build on its 3-1 start. Murray has Fort Campbell tonight before playing Ballard Memorial and Caldwell County leading up to a huge matchup with Mayfield on October 22nd in Mayfield, Kentucky.
Caldwell will prove a test as the Tigers from Princeton get better week after week. Murray better not overlook Caldwell as Caldwell beat the one team Murray lost to in Union County (53-28).
However, if Murray gets by Caldwell, Murray High’s Tigers could enter the date with Mayfield sporting a 6-1 record. If they do, the winner of that game could be home for the first two rounds.
Congratulations to Gage and Rowdy Sokolowski, both for their Revolutionary Play against the Christian County Colonels and that which is to come the remainder of the ’21 football season, all of which has earned the both of them 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!
