The Bob Hook Chevrolet’s Prime to Perform Player of the Week is Frank Peabody
The Prime to Perform award, brought to you by Bob Hook Chevrolet, is a new weekly award given out to the Louisville Lightning player that is expected to have a high quality performance in the next game. This award is delegated by the coaches and the staff of the Louisville Lightning Professional Indoor Soccer Team, and is designated to the player that shows determination and skill in the week of practice before the game.
This week’s Bob Hook Chevrolet’s Prime to Perform Player of the Week goes to Frank Peabody. Frank has been the starting goalie all season long as well as the two previous seasons. Peabody is one of the home-grown products of Louisville, KY. But, not only did he grow up in this great city, he also played his youth soccer for Mockingbird Valley. He also went on to play youth soccer for other clubs around Louisville such as Javanon, LAFC, and Bon Air, but when it was all said and done, he decided to return to work for MVSC.
Frank continued his soccer playing career for Butler University in Indianapolis. At Butler's Division I program, Frank led the nation in both Goals Against Average (0.25) and Save Percentage (0.943). Not only are those great stats, but remember people, that was leading the nation! Frank went on to play some professional soccer other than the Lightning for the PDL team in Fort Wayne, the Fort Wayne Fever.
Frank returned to Louisville to play for the start up professional indoor soccer team, the Louisvile Lightning, and hasn't looked back since. He is one of the centerpieces of the team, and has been playing phenomenal all year long. Frank and the rest of the Lightning will play the Detroit Waza in their last game of the season on February 24th. But, they will also be hosting another Eastern Division team for the first round of the PASL playoffs on March 2nd. Good luck to Frank and the rest of the Lightning players!
