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 WR/DB from the Class of ’26 who really has impressed both Independence Bank and KPGFootball that he has what it takes to be a rising star on both the KYMSFA and KHSAA levels. This guy was just spectacular for the Bears this past year.
Today we are recognizing the outstanding play of super soon-to-be-8th-grade WR/DB, Trey Sedgwick, from Browning Springs Middle School in Madisonville, Kentucky. Not many 7th-graders, rising 8th-graders, can boast of being featured on KPGFootball or being awarded a prestigious award like this one from the fastest growing bank in Kentucky, Independence Bank.
Sedgwick’s Browning Springs Middle School is not too far from 2 Independence Bank branches in Madisonville, Kentucky. One is located at 629 East Center Street, and the other is on 1776 North Main 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.
We’ve been in the business of spotting talent a while now, and this is the bank’s fourth-year sponsoring this very award. People are starting to realize that both Independence Bank and KPGFootball have pretty keen eyes for talent. It helps we have people around the commonwealth who regularly scout for us and let us in on where we can find the players.
The head coach at Browning Springs, Tyrone Gregory, is one of our key team members. We have come to learn that when Coach Gregory tells us someone can play football, we need to start writing and quit talking; the master is trying to teach us something.
Coach Gregory is really high on Sedgwick. He told us Sedgwick is a WR/DB combo guy with all the skills. He has hands, runs disciplined routes, makes the difficult catches, can separate form the back-end, and is a real leader on offense. On defense, we are told he closes very well, brings the lumber when he tackles, has an instinct to arrive at the football and is in an ill-humor when getting there.
Gregory went on to tell KPGFootball, “He (Sedgwick) holds his coaches and teammates to the same level of expectations he has for himself. Sedgwick accepts no excuses for failure, not in himself or others. He expects to be coached and coached hard. He is a perfectionist. Sedgwick’s already squatting 225-pounds, five times, in the weight room too. He’s a #NoDoubter in my mind.”
Sedgwick, according to Coach Gregory, is a true Team-Kentuckian in every sense of the word. We’re looking forward to getting to watch him perform in the Battle of the Regions, in some of the other spring competitions coming up really soon, as well as combines over the summer.
Congratulations to Trey Sedgwick, for his Revolutionary Play in 2020 and we look forward to watching a huge 8th-grade campaign out of him in ’21. We are proud to award Trey 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!
