The Tom Roberts Memorial Fund, established in 2016, is a tribute to the memory of Tom Roberts. Known to many as simply “Coach” or “Coach Rob”, Tom Roberts influenced the lives of many in Frankfort, Kentucky and beyond during his 32 years of teaching and 36 years of coaching football. Tom began teaching and coaching at Bridgeport School in 1972, where he also served as an assistant coach at Franklin County High School (FCHS). He later went on to coach and teach at Bondurant Middle School and was an assistant coach at FCHS in 1978 & 1979. When Western Hills High School opened in 1980, Tom became head football coach and physical education teacher at the school. In 1985 “Coach Rob” went back to FCHS where he served as an assistant football coach and physical education teacher at Elkhorn Middle School. He served as head football coach at FCHS from 1989-2003. Upon retirement, his love of coaching brought him back to the football field where he served as an assistant coach at Frankfort High School for several seasons.
During his years of teaching he worked as a manager at Juniper Hill swimming pool for many summers during the 1980’s, 1990’s and 2000’s. Upon retirement from education he continued working for the Frankfort Parks and Recreation Department as manager of downtown parks, where he took great pride in making sure the city looked great. Tom had a passion for the city of Frankfort.
Tom’s Legacy and Passion
To honor Tom’s legacy and passion for middle and high school football, this fund will support the needs of middle and high school football players in Franklin County via the schools and their support clubs. These funds may be used to assist with individual players costs as well as for various team expenses as determined on a need basis.
Tom was the coach who would notice your inadequate piece of equipment, then go buy you a replacement out of his own paycheck. His inspiration lives on via the thousands of lives that Tom touched, and this fund will serve to preserve his legacy by helping change the lives of youth through sports.
