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 both has and continues to exceed the Cougars’ and McClean County, Kentucky community’s expectations. We are focusing on the class of 2022, offensive center, Tyler Harberson, from McClean County, Kentucky.
Tyler is a sophomore at McLean County High School which is only 10 minutes away from an Independence Bank branch in Livermore, Kentucky. That branch is located 7.9-miles down KY-136 E from Tyler’s McLean County High School on 614 Henton Street.
Go on by there and see our friends at Independence Bank today and tell them you appreciate their supporting the fine student athletes in the areas where they do business. Now, as for this week’s recipient…
No one, even we, forecast McLean would go to Owensboro Catholic and come out of there with a victory in round two. It was, truly, one of the more splendid upsets in the recent history of the KHSAA football playoffs.
You have to win the line of scrimmage to have playoff success, especially in Kentucky. Now, the Cougars have talented runners, for sure, as past recipients of this particular award practically dot the Cougar backfield. Without the guys upfront, like Tyler Harberson who mans the center slot, none of the backfield stars would have the success with which they have met all season long.
Friday night was no different for the Cougars. Against a tough Owensboro Catholic team, and one which figured to be a decided favorite in a rematch from the regular season where Catholic had won the first match-up easily, the Cougars were able to chew-up 285-yards on the ground, with 4-rushing TDs.
Harberson and his line-mates were effective in pass protection too. On the evening, McLean completed 4 of 6 pass attempts for 136-yards passing and an aerial TD to go with what they had done on the ground. McLean will have to have a similar effort on the road at Somerset if they would like to keep marching on to Lexington, Kentucky. Good luck boys!
Congratulations to Tyler Harberson from the McClean County High School in Calhoun, Kentucky for his Revolutionary Play which has earned him 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!
