Tyler Boggs from St. Xavier High may be the best returning safety on the field and under the lights in Kentucky 6A football.Fletcher W. Long, Senior Scout and Editorial Board 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 player who some may claim played his best game in the Title game against Male High a year ago. Today we are featuring ’23 S, Tyler Boggs, from Louisville’s St. Xavier High School.
Boggs’ performance exceeded reasonable expectations in 2021 for his Tigers. Boggs will be heavily counted on early and often over the course of his senior year to continue the fine play Boggs exhibited last season. Boggs’ St. Xavier High School is located just down the road from three (2) Louisville-area Independence Bank branches.
One of the branches is locked at 3901 Shelbyville Road. Another is located on 1900 Colonel Sanders Lane. Both of them are in Louisville, Kentucky. Get on by and visit one of our fine branches today and discover what makes Independence Bank’s people, products, and services revolutionary in the financial services industry.
Boggs was tied for the team lead in interceptions for the St. Xavier Tigers (3) a season ago. Even bigger than that, Boggs picked one of the two interceptions which were instrumental to the Tigers overcoming a fine Male High team in last year’s 6A title game. The other pick was plucked by Matthew Donhoff, ’22.
Boggs was a long way from a one-hit wonder. Boggs registered 81-tackles, 5-TFLs, a QB-sack, and a FR to go along with his 3-INTs.
On a team laden with senior leadership and talent, this 5’11” and 180-pounder showed the junior class at one of Kentucky’s premier parochial schools is nothing at which to sneeze. We believe the Tigers will be tough again in ’22 and their senior safety will play a large role in that prophesy being fulfilled.
Congratulations to Tyler Boggs, both for his Revolutionary Play in 2021 and that which is to come in 2022, all of which has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, our friends at Independence Bank.
