Boone's King rushes for 380 yards
Junior rushes 38 times to set school record
The Cincinnati Enquirer
Boone County junior tailback Timmy King, limited by a shoulder injury all season, made the most of his first full game back in the lineup.
The junior rushed 38 times for a school-record 380 yards and three touchdowns in helping the host Rebels claim a 38-14 victory in a Class AAAA district opener against Scott County. It was Boone's first home game at renovated Irv Goode Field.
King's rushing effort ranks as the 10th-highest single-game total in state history.
He was injured in the season opener against Covington Catholic and hadn't played a full game until Friday. He had totaled just 523 yards all last season as part of a two-back rotation with then-senior Preston Herron.
It was a nice night, a nice thing to do in that brand-new stadium, Boone assistant coach Jon Smith said. A lot of that credit goes to him.
The guys are excited to have him back, but he's even more excited to be back. He can definitely make a difference in a lot of ballgames, with and without the ball.
King also played about 20 snaps at linebacker, helping pressure Scott County quarterback Justin Christman.
After an 0-3 start, Boone has won two consecutive games. Its deficit shrank to 24-14 with 8:55 left in the game, but Jason Parkey scored two late touchdowns to seal the victory.
Christman threw for 279 yards on 23-of-44 passing.
