Tilghman ’25 LB/DE may be WKY’s top defender
Jimmy Mooney is a load and one of the areas very top, second level defenders in the western-Kentucky region. He is 5/11,” 225-pounds of man. He may be an inch or two shorter than some schools would like at his position; but, his on-field production is prodigious and he is both a football and wrestling varsity star, which fits with the type athletic skill set most programs covet.HB Lyon, Scouting Director, KPGFootball

Jimmy Mooney is one of the area’s very best linebackers. Matter of fact, he would have to rank among the elite linebackers anywhere in the Bluegrass.
If you are looking for a “play alike” clone, he is very similar to Breathitt County’s Kory Combs. Most people in the know would concede Combs has been among the best linebackers in Kentucky the entire time he has been competing at the varsity level.
Combs made our Small-School, All-State team. Mooney’s not making the Big-School All-State team was likely a “miss” on our part. He certainly has the numbers.
In ’23, money registered 90-tackles. In addition to that, he recorded six (6)-TFLs, two (2) QB-sacks, and a FR.
Mooney is 5’11,” and weighs 225-pounds. He is a star on the Tilghman football team but is also a star on the school’s wrestling team.
Mooney is an example of the type athletes college programs are combing the Bluegrass in search of signing. He is a versatile athlete whose skill sets lend themselves to more than just one varsity sport.
We expect Jimmy Mooney to be highly recruited. Don’t be surprised if he isn’t offered by the majority of Kentucky colleges fielding football teams.
Mooney is a guy who made a bunch of all-something teams. He was first team on the Western Kentucky Conference‘s defensive squad for the ’23 season.
Mooney’s performance, both over his junior year and the one we know he will render in ’24, is (and will be) well deserving of this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, our friends at Independence Bank.
