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, quite frankly, is one of the Class of 2022’s more productive second-level players if playing the game and producing on Friday Nights is your thing like it is ours. Today we feature Bowling Green (Senior) High School’s Tyler Moore entering his senior season for the Purples at the MLB slot and coming off the ’19, Class 5A title in the KHSAA.
Moore’s Bowling Green (Senior) High School is right down the road from three Independence Bank branches. First, there is the Fairview Avenue Branch, 977 Fairview Avenue; second, and one of our favorites, is the Freedom Square Branch, 1950 Scottsville Road; and third is the Nashville Road Branch located on 2415 Nashville Road all three of which are in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
Go on down and see our friends at either one or, perhaps all three, of these Independence Bank locations. Give them both the opportunity and privilege to earn your business. Let them demonstrate to you what makes Independence Bank the best in the banking business and the fastest growing financial institution in Kentucky.
Tyler Moore is a kid who is a “Friday Night Star” at the middle linebacker position but who doesn’t have the frame some schools covet. What he has is the level of production and on-field success which builds championships and which all schools should covet.
Moore is 6-1 and weighs in around 190-pounds. He’s focused, he grinds, and he appreciates it is harder to stay at the top than it is to climb there.
That is the mission in ’21 for a program and teammates which helped their team win its 6th-title a year ago (1995, 2011, ’12, ’13, ’15, ’16, & ’20). Now that we find ourselves at the top, Purples, how do we stay there?
The answer, with apologies to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle appears, “Elementary.” You find some Tyler Moore types. Then you get busy deploying them on the field everywhere you have an appropriate slot.
Another way to stay there is with returning seniors who enjoyed the level of on-field success Tyler Moore enjoyed. Moore in ’20, recorded 86-tackles on the team. Moore returns in ’21 the defense’s top-tackler with remaining eligibility.
Absent Rece Jones “Re-Doing” last year, which we have heard zero about as of the date of this article’s posting, Moore will enter the season the top-returning tackler from a year ago. In addition to his 86-stops, Moore added a TFL, a FF, and a FR.
Now Tyler Moore should help offset the loss of a prospect we have featured many times before in Bridger Knee on the defensive side of the football who has transferred to what he hopes to be “greener pastures.” If the program is to return in ’21, to once again scale to the same peak it conquered in the COVID-19 shortened ’20 season, Tyler Moore will simply have to be “on his game.”
Can Moore do it? Well, if history is any indication, it would be hard to bet much money against either the Purples or him.
Congratulations, Tyler Moore, both for your Revolutionary Play in ’20 and that which is to come in 2021, all of which has earned you this week’s recognition. Go out there and show them of what you’re made, Tyler…your friends at Independence Bank will all be watching!
For the rest of you reading this, go see our friends at the fastest growing bank in the commonwealth of Kentucky who owe that growth to the men, women, and revolutionary financial products available for its banking customers. Go down and see our friends at your local 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!
