Senior DB/WR combo guy makes it happen on the defensive back-end
They call him “Mr. Clamps” at North-Hopkins and Coach Chris Price (CP) will profess there being very good reason for that. Senior DB,WR Trey Carney is an intriguing prospect. He has good size and length, particularly for a corner, and he has the penchant for turning up at the big moment around the football.Fletcher W. Long, Head of the Scouting Division, KPGFootball
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 versatile football player who produces in multiple phases of a football game as well as in multiple varsity sports. Today we are featuring ’23 DB/WR from Madisonville, Kentucky’s Noth-Hopkins High School named Treonté (Trey) Carney.
This versatile multi-sport athlete (basketball and football) has his Maroons standing at 7-4 with a second round date with 11-0 Warrant East in Bowling Green, Kentucky and an opportunity to “shock the world” as kids are fond of saying. Tonight’s road game in Bowling Green could send shock waves up and down the 4A classification were the Maroons to advance.
Trey Carney’s performance this season has exceeded all reasonable expectations for his team and has resulted in the stockpiling of some eye-popping statistics. Madisonville North-Hopkins High is located just down the road from two Madison area Independence Bank branches, one located on 629 E Center Street and the other located on 1776 N Main Street.
Get on by and visit either of these fine branches today. Discover what makes Independence Bank’s people, products, and services revolutionary in the financial services industry.
North-Hopkins, or just “North” as folks around Madisonville refer to the Maroons, has a tough task tonight. They travel to Bowling Green, Kentucky to take on, in round two, a Warren East squad which is 11-0 and sports the 4th-highest RPI in the KHSAA “official,” 4A rankings. These rankings are significant as they are used for seeding purposes.
North-Hopkins enters the game 7-4 on the season. The Maroons are ranked 12th in the “official” 4A rankings themselves so it isn’t as if they are dogs.
The Maroons have plenty “dogs” however, if you are familiar with that colloquialism in the football world. “Dog” is a very complimentary term when referencing a football player. It means the player is mean, ornery, and always in on big plays/big hits.
“Dog” is one of those football-related terms hard to exactly define. Football people know “Dogs” when they are seeing “Dogs.” When a football player encounters a “Dog,” particularly if he is on the receiving end of one of the “Dog’s” tackles, the identity of what you have just encountered is unmistakable.
Speaking of a “Dog,” Tre Carney is having a fine season. Tre is a senior, is 5’10,” with plus length, and weighs 170-pounds. He projects as a corner, next level, and he may have a next level on the hardwood at guard as well.
Carney registered 40-tackles this year, led the team in INT’s (2), led the team in Interception Return Net Yards (55), and led the team in pick-sixes (1).
Offensively, Carney was 5th on the team in receptions and scored a 31-yard rushing TD in his only carry. Tre doesn’t have a ton of experience as a football player making his contributions even more impressive.
Head Coach Chris Price published on Twitter that Carney recently exploded onto the gridiron and ranked 4th in 4A in INT’s. Perhaps even more important is CP celebrating Trey’s being an honor student with strong leadership skills.
Sounds like our kind of guy. That goes for the good folks at Independence Bank as well.
Congratulations to Tre Carney for his “Revolutionary Play” through the regular season, what he did in round one, and that which is to come tonight in the second round of the KHSAA playoffs, all of which has earned this magnificently versatile senior, two-sport superstar this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, our friends at Independence Bank.
This is Coach HB Lyon, reporting for KPGFootball, and we’re JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT!
