John Emery plans to ‘take over the throne’ as LSU’s next historically great running back

The only sign of the greatness inside this house is the black “Destrehan #4” sign poking out of the ground, cocked sideways, creased in the middle.

On the front door hangs a Christmas wreath unique to Louisiana, as purple and gold fabric weave in and out of gold and black — college and professional football loyalties intertwined.

Inside, John Emery Jr. lays sprawled on his bed, eyes fixed on his TV. With a first glance at the Destrehan senior and his space, you wouldn’t know the star he carries inside.
