Bennie Coney, Eastern Kentucky’s quarterback is a redshirt sophomore transfer from the University of Cincinnati. Here are five things you should know about him…

Coney is become a father today

Coney posted on this Facebook page today:

“Baby girl coming today. Praying for a safe delivery. Pray for my child and the mother of my child as they take upon this challenge”

Congratulations on this day and we wish a safe delivery for your daughter.

Coney transferred to EKU for eligibility reasons 

Bennie Coney left Cincinnati due to the probability he would not become the starting quarterback, and maybe even the third-string QB. Coney, a Florida native, was rumored to be heading to USF or UCF where he would only have two seasons of eligibility left. However, Coney’s transfer Eastern Kentucky gave him three seasons of eligibility, which I assume was the leaning factor.

Coney likes to pump the iron and show it off

After going through some of Coney’s social media, I have noticed that he likes to show people how in shape he is. Coney has posted multiple pictures of himself without a shirt on and while flexing. #NoDaysOff



Get big 😎😼… It ain't nothing but work, don't run 🏈🏆〽️'s

Coney attended Plant City High School

After some research, that is an actual name of a high school. Apparently there is a city in Florida called Plant City where Coney grew up. Plant City is a little east of Tampa. Sadly, their mascot is a Raider and not a Conifer Tree.

Coney was suspended from his high school football team twice

Rarely do you hear of a player being dismissed from a high school football, team but Coney managed to defy this odd twice. The first violation was due to a violation of team rules and the second was because of an altercation with a teammate. However, it looks like Coney has matured and has got on the right path.

    Plant City is known as the strawberry capital of Florida – – and they are good berries! It’s a big agricultural cross-roads outside of Tampa where it can handle shipping on I-75 and I-4 to I-95. Not a bad town to be from, at all.

    Coney has matured? Having a baby with no way to support it. Sounds mature to me.
