H.S. FOOTBALL | New Lexington High School Names Head Coach

01/02/2017 05:45 PM

Frederick Douglass High School revealed big news surrounding its athletic program on Monday afternoon.

Brian Landis, who spent last season as a University of Kentucky football defensive quality control coach and assistant linebackers coach, was named the high school’s first-ever head football coach.

“We’re not going to talk about wins and losses,” said Landis. “We’re going to talk about the process that it takes to become a champion.”

The Lexington-area school is set to open its doors for the first time in August of 2017.

Also announced on Monday were the school’s mascot, a stallion, and the school’s colors, Keeneland Green and orange.
