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 Blue Tornado’s success in 2020. Today, we are focusing on Class of 2024, QB, Cole Carpenter, from Lexington’s Frederick Douglass High School.
Carpenter’s Broncos are located right down the road from a Lexington branch located at 444 East Main Street, Suite 108, in Lexington, KY 40507. Go and visit the most rapidly growing bank in the commonwealth of Kentucky, with 28 locations, Kentucky-wide, Independence Bank. Independence Bank has started a revolution in the banking industry.
Cole Carpenter plays the most high-profile position for the most high-profile, high school football program currently operating within the confines of the commonwealth’s borders. Frederick Douglass is annually in title contention in football and is the defending champion at the 5A level.
No one was more pivotal to the success and fortunes of the ball club than was the Broncos’ junior QB. Carpenter completed 134 of his 213-passing attempts (63%), for close to a couple thousand yards through the air (1,863), and only suffered 5-INT’s interspersed among his 23-TD throws. That is a close to 5:1 touchdown to interception ratio.
Anyone who has ever followed the game of football (or reported on it) will tell you the QB’s most important statistic is measured in wins and losses. Ultimately, QB’s and coaches are judged by that particular measuring stick over any other, whether or not that is fair.
Well, Carpenter is getting it done, even in that particular category. In ’02, the Broncos were 15-0 and won all the 5A, Kentucky-wide, hardware. That level of production, and efficiency, is difficult to criticize.
Carpenter is 6’4,” and tips the scales at 204-pounds. He is a drop-back guy principally with the mobility to stave off the rush until he can locate a downfield target. Perhaps the most important statistic for a guy EKU will want at the helm of its offense one day, Carpenter is sporting a 4.0 GPA on top of everything else.
Congratulations to Cole Carpenter, both for his Revolutionary Play in 2022 and that which is to come in 2023.
