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 (Simon Ghee) who played very well last week against Allen County-Scottsville and will need to do much of the same when the Franklin-Simpson Wildcats roll into Bowling Green tonight.
Ghee’s Warren East High School (WEHS) is right down the road from three Independence Bank branches. First, there is the Fairview Avenue Branch, 977 Fairview Avenue; second, and one of our favorites, is the Freedom Square Branch, 1950 Scottsville Road; and third is the Nashville Road Branch located on 2415 Nashville Road all three of which are in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
Go on down and see our friends at either one or, perhaps all three, of these Independence Bank locations. Give them both the opportunity and privilege to earn your business. Let them demonstrate to you what makes Independence Bank the best in the banking business and the fastest growing financial institution in Kentucky.
Simon Ghee is a name which may not be familiar to many of the readers outside of Bowling Green, Kentucky. It is a familiar name to us at KPGFootball because he is fast emerging as one of Kentucky’s better sophomores at both TE and LB.
Ghee has a perfect frame for LB and we believe he lands there in college. However, even at the 4A level, athletes like Ghee are generally required to play both ways in high school. Such has been the case with Ghee.
Ghee led the defense against Allen County-Scottsville (ACS) in the most recent outing. He had 6-stops.
On the year, the Class of 2023 prospect is third on the team wit 19-stops to go along with a QB-sack and 2 fumble recoveries in only 5-games of action. Offensively, Ghee has caught 4-balls for 82-yards and a TD-reception to go along with his blocking, up-front, as the sixth member of the offensive line.
Warren East is 2-3 on the year. If they can get by a visit from Franklin-Simpson (1-3) tonight, WEHS has a chance to knot up its season record at 3’s and host a first round playoff game.
If Ghee keeps playing like he’s been playing, Warren East getting past Franklin-Simpson may just be “in the bag.” Still got to play it on the field; but we believe Warren East will be favored to beat Franklin-Simpson at home.
Congratulations, Simon Ghee, both for your Revolutionary Play against ACS and that which is to come against Franklin-Simpson tonight in Bowling Green, Kentucky, all of which has earned you this week’s recognition. Go out there and show them of what you’re made, Simon…your friends at Independence Bank will all be watching!
For the rest of you reading this, go see our friends at the fastest growing bank in the commonwealth of Kentucky who owe that growth to the men, women, and revolutionary financial products available for its banking customers. Go down and see our friends at your local 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!
