Talented and versatile junior (’24) showing he is his own threat with which to contend
Everybody knows the talent and potential Jhaden Vaughn at Trigg County represents. Jeremiah Shearer is showing out in his own right. He is showing, one and all, that Jhaden Vaughn isn’t the only primetime star at Trigg County.Fletcher W. Long, KPGFootball Senior Scout
We wrote about Jhaden Vaughn back in January of this year. You may remember an article entitled, “Jhaden Time…”
In that article we said,…
“There is one eye-popping, FBS, power-five looking prospect who’s stature and athleticism make his getting overlooked doubtful and his time to shine in upcoming years appear evident. He’s been as big of a star on the hardwood as he figures to be on the grid iron.”
“His name is Jhaden Vaughn. His position coach tells KPGFootball the kid is really something.”
“Vaughn is 6-5 with a ton of length. He has a reported 39-inch vertical and, if that is accurate, it means his speed and explosion would not be in question.”
We don’t back away from any of that. However, the “other side” of this equation has proven a difficult “solve” for opposing offensive and defensive coordinators alike this season.
Jerimyah Shearer is coming off a huge game against Webster County which ran his team’s seasonal record to 7-1 with Union County looming. Shearer caught 7-football for 124-receiving yards and a TD in the 27-20 win. His highlights from that game appears linked under is picture.
On the year, he has caught as many passes as has Vaughn with the two of them tied for the team lead (31). Shearer is second in yards receiving and TD’s receiving.
Shearer is the team leader with 5-INT’s this season in 8-games. He is also among the leaders across the commonwealth both in 3A and overall. Perhaps, that is what separates him in the end.
Shearer is as dangerous to opposing coordinators on defense as he is on offense. Not many prime-timers can equal such a claim.
In the end, this is a prospect demonstrating he will have to be dealt with by coaches hoping to beat the Wildcats this season. He has demonstrated being way more than just the player aligned opposite Jhaden Vaughn.
