Kenny Yeboah is the kind of prospect who can often be overlooked. He’s a talented receiver with size and standout athleticism vs. competition which is often overwhelmed. Yeboah competes in Pennsylvania for Parkland High in Allentown, Penn., and has put up a handful of impressive highlights during a senior season which was preceded by his commitment to Temple.
Still, none of his prior highlights can compete with the touchdown he orchestrated during Parkland’s 63-31 rout of Wyoming Valley West in the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association playoffs. First, Yeboah elevated to pull down a deep ball thrown into double coverage by quarterback Devante Cross. Then, just as the Wyoming Valley West defenders were in the process of dragging Yeboah to the turf, he flipped the football to teammate Zach Bross, who was streaking upfield to join the action. The lateral was spot perfect, with Yeboah celebrating wildly with teammates moments later.
The touchdown was one of a handful of standout plays from Parkland’s shocking victory which earned it a berth in the Class 4A state quarterfinals. No matter how far they go, it’ll be tough to top the play Yeboah and Bross combined for already.
