Tyler, Texas (KETK) - After just one season as a the Athletic Director and head football coach of the Frankston Indians, Jonny Louvier is heading to Robert E. Lee.
Louvier tells KETK's Reagan Roy he will join the staff of newly-hired head coach Kurt Traylor as the assistant head coach. His official start date is set for Monday, June 12.
Before taking the reins at Frankston, Louvier served as the offensive coordinator at his alma mater, Gladewater. He also spent time as the OC at Arp.
In 2015, Louvier was nominated for the BUILT by Nature Assistant Coach of the Week presented by Dairy Max and Dave Cambpell's Texas Football. Louvier was also featured in a 2015 KETK Special Report, "Facing Reality."
In high school, Louvier not only shined on the football field, but was a top-tier basketball and baseball player, in addition to his contributions on the track.
As an honorable mention All-State quarterback under former Gladewater coach David Hussman, Louvier was the District 14-3A Offensive Player of the Year as a senior in 2001, two-time All-East Texas selection and team MVP as a junior and senior. He threw for 4,502 yards and 44 touchdowns as a prep player while rushing for 1,345 yards and 15 touchdowns, as well. However, Louvier's talents were not limited to athletics. He was an Academic All-State player, Wendy's High School Heisman award winner and won the district's Newcomer of the Year as a sophomore. He was also recognized for his efforts on the basketball court being named the district's MVP twice as a point guard.
Louvier holds the Gladewater school record for passing yards, having accumulated 4,502. Also, he ranks No. 1 in most touchdown passes in a season with 18, most touchdown passes in a career with 44, most passing attempts in a season with 237 and most completions in a season with 127.
Louvier, who graduated from Gladewater in 2002, went on to play quarterback at Texas A&M-Commerce where he earned a B.S. in Kinesiology.
Frankston will now begin the search for their fourth head coach since 2014.
