Coach Davis


The Frankfort Independent Schools would like to announce the hiring of a new head
football coach at Frankfort High School. Coach Stephen ‘Yogi’ Davis comes to
Frankfort High School from his most recent coaching stint at Pikeville High School in
Pikeville, Kentucky.

Prior to joining the Frankfort High family, Coach Davis helped lead the Pikeville
Panthers to four state championship appearances with three state championship
wins in 2019, 2021, and 2023. During his tenure at Pikeville High School as the
defensive line coach and special teams coordinator, Pikeville’s defense was ranked in
the top 5 for Class A football every year - most recently, being ranked #1 to finish the
2022 season.

Coach Davis is thrilled to join Frankfort High School as the head football coach of the
mighty Panthers. With almost a decade of experience, he brings a wealth of
knowledge to the team. Coach Davis and his family are excited to become a part of
the Frankfort High traditions.

Coach Davis holds a Bachelor of Science in Recreational Management from Catawba
College in Salisbury, NC, and a Master of Arts in Special Education from the University
of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, KY. Outside of teaching and football, Coach
Davis enjoys fishing and spending time with his wife, Lucy, and daughter, Lola.

Frankfort Independent Athletic Director, Amy Dungan says of the hire – “We are very
excited to welcome Coach Davis to the Panther Family! He brings positive energy
and a champion mindset to our athletic program. Coming from one of the most elite
football programs in the state, he holds a level of experience and accountability that
will push our student-athletes to their greatest potential. Coach Davis embraces our
vision for the football program and will continue to elevate it, building upon the strong
foundation laid by legacies at Sower Field. The future is NOW!”

On Friday, April 14, Coach Davis will meet with his team, followed by a meet and
greet at 6 p.m. at Sower Field. Please join the Frankfort Independent Schools in
