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.

A call to Stinson's attorney, Alex Dathorne, was not immediately returned. Stengel says Stinson is expected to appear at an arraignment Monday in Louisville.
