    Updated: January 22, 2009, 3:42 PM EST LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -
    A Kentucky high school football coach has been charged with reckless homicide in the death of a player who collapsed at practice on a hot day.

    Jefferson County Commonwealth's Attorney Dave Stengel says a grand jury indicted Pleasure Ridge Park head football coach David Jason Stinson on Thursday. The school is in Louisville.

    Pleasure Ridge sophomore Max Gilpin collapsed on Aug. 20 and died three days later at a hospital.

    This is why when I coach my kids on super hot days, I am sure to give them ample rest time and as much water as they can drink.

    Thoughts and prayers with the family.
    We're bringing purple back.

    I'm torn, and obviously we don't have all the details. IMHO he should be fired but not charged. I seriously doubt he meant to kill anyone, so something like 3rd degree manslaughter at the most.
