Highlights from the Davis Era

Lingenhoel Group - Arden and Lisa Lingenhoel - Cutler Real Estate AdDavis replaced one year head coach Jeff Twiddy in 2020 and compiled a record of 7-22 in three seasons as an independent. No other coach in the history of Leopard football has ever coached more than a single season as an independent outside of a league.

Davis’ signature victories included guiding Louisville their first victory at GlenOak since 1978, defeating West Virginia powerhouse Linsly Academy in the 2021 season finale, and rallying from 16 points down to defeat defending regional champion Green. His tenure also included hard fought road wins at Central in 2020, at Alliance in 2021, and over former Leopard Head Coach John Demarco during a 16-6 win at Northwest this past season.

Davis’ final victory came in a 24-17 double overtime thriller against Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin in Week 9 avenging his only playoff loss.

“Louisville & Louisville Leopard Football have been and always will be special to me. As I step away from the head coaching position, I can assure you that I will assist in a smooth transition in any way I can. In addition, I intend to continue to support Leopard Football & assist in any roles that could lead to success from the program. Go Leopards.”
