SOMERSET, Ky. (FOX 56) — Longtime Somerset High School coach Robbie Lucas has died, according to the school’s athletic department.

Lucas was involved in the Briar Jumper’s football program for more than 20 years, 14 of them as head coach.

“The legacy coach Lucas leaves behind and the impact he has had on the lives of the 100’s of players that had the privilege to call him coach cannot be overstated. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, and Briar Jumpers everywhere,” said Briar Jumpers Athletics.

Lucas was the head coach for the Briar Jumpers in 2019 when the program claimed its first state title.

The cause of Lucas’ death has not been released at this time.
