High school football season is literally not more than a week or so from commencement. This game is so special and particularly for kids like Jack Davis. Davis is a WR/DE two-way guy who comes to play every Friday night under the bright lights and just brings it! We hope he has a special senior season. That hope is extended to Jack, his twin brother Sam, and the entire legion of Friday night heroes out there in the Bluegrass getting ready to don the ‘eye-black’ and play out their hearts and souls just for us.Fletcher W.

We bet you KPGFootball can tell you something about Frankfort High School you don’t know. It is the high school and football team which boasts the Davis twins on the roster (Sam and Jack) but anyone can discover that just by going to the KHSAA website.
We bet you didn’t know George Costello Wolfe attended Franklin High. Wolfe, born in 1954, is an American playwright and director who won his first Tony Award in 1993 for his direction of Angels in America: Millennium Approaches. Wolfe won a second Tony in 1996 for Bring in ‘da Noise/Bring in ‘da Funk. Look it up.
Will either Jack or Sam Davis be as famous one day as the great George Wolfe? Who’s to say? What we can say is both of the Davis boys will weigh much more heavily into the Panther football fortunes this coming Fall than Mr. Wolfe.
Jack Davis played in 10-games a year ago. Notwithstanding missing some of the games, Davis was still among the leaders in several key statistical categories.
Now the 6’1,” 160-pounder plays WR on offense and DE on defense. He contributed mightily on both sides of the scrimmage line a season ago.
Davis had 8-receptions for 80-yards on offense. On defense, the end contributed 35-tackles, 2-TFLs, and one QB-sack. The Panthers were 7-5 and took it on the chin in round two on the road at Kentucky Country Day, 30-0, in the playoffs.
Frankfort is a competitive Kentucky program at the 1A classification, especially in the third-district, and will be again in ’22. One thing is certain, the Davis brothers (and Jack particularly) will have to be on their games for the Panthers to navigate the upcoming season like a Tony Award winning, broadway cast. Maybe Mr. Wolfe, as a loyal graduate, might be willing to give the Davis boys a few pointers about how it used to get done in his day.
