Owensboro Senior High School
Coach Embry would have a Hall of Fame resume as a player at Owensboro High School being chosen to the All-State Teams of 1960 and 1961 and Mr. Basketball in 1961. However, the best was yet to come. He began his coaching career at Davies County High School but would soon move over to his alma mater, Owensboro Senior High School as leader of the Red Devils. His teams won 558 games including eight regional titles.
