Timmy Emongo is a three phase contributor on a 5A roster and a ’27 superstar @TimmyEmongo9 @ScottCoSports @cards_football @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @840WHAS

Emongo, No. 9, may be Kentucky's very best rising sophomore

’27 superstar a three-phase contributor

Timmy Emongo is already stockpiling offers and only a ’27. He contributed on a 5A ball club which won nine-games in ’23 in all three phases of football. He scored five rushing TDs, housed two kickoffs, scored a TD receiving, and took an INT to the house for a pick-six on his way to 54-points to finish third on the team in spite of his being a ninth grader at the time. What will this kid do for an encore as a sophomore? Our guess is bedazzle the lot of us.

Hudl Highlights


I got in an argument with a coach at the 6A level about playing freshmen. It was his position a healthy program, 4A or higher, really shouldn’t play any freshmen.

I politely disagreed. I think in today’s day and time, with the training and showcase opportunities available for middle schoolers, and the weight training middle school kids are undertaking; there are some former middle schoolers who enter high school anatomical juniors. These rising ninth-graders seem impossible to sit.

Now I can’t speak for you, but we esteem Scott County as a pretty dad-burn prestigious 5A program. Coach McKee’s Cardinals seem to stay in the championship hunt throughout most seasons and often engage in deep playoff runs. Suffice it to say there is plenty of roster talent at Scott County High.

It should be very difficult for any freshman to ever play on Friday Night in Scott County. Yet, here we have Exhibit A, Class of 2027’s Timmy Emongo.

Emongo rushed for 382-yards and five TDs in only 30-carries which works out to 12.74 yards per carry

KHSAA Statistical Website

Emongo rushed for 382-yards and five TDs in ’23 in only 30-carries which works out to 12.74 (or so) yards per carry and a rushing TD every sixth attempt. Emongo caught 4-passes for 83-yards and scored a TD receiving.

Emongo was a kick returner in ’23. He housed a pair of kick-offs. Together with his five rushing TDs, his receiving TD, his two housed kicks and the pick-six on defense, Emongo was third on the team in scoring with 54-points.

Emongo played defense. He registered 22-tackles and a pick-six.

Now, anyone claiming Emongo was just some ordinary freshman is taking you for a bit of a ride. Emongo won a championship in track in both the 100 and 200-meter dashes and carries a 3.7 GPA.

Emongo is 5’9,” and weighs 170-pounds. He has a pair of D-1 offers and those offers are courtesy of his being among the fastest players in the KHSAA at any grade level.

So, how does one not play a freshman like this. Don’t ask Jim McKee, he obviously has no idea.
