The High School Football Huddle


A lot of eyes are focused on Kentucky today as the trial begins for the coach charged with reckless homicide in the death of a Pleasure Ridge Park player in August 2008. David Jason Stinson is charged with reckless homicide in the death of 15-year old Max Gilpin, who collapsed during practice in 94-degree heat.

Support for Stinson is pretty strong with one man, Rodney Daugherty starting a website to raise money for Stinson's legal defense. Reportedly, Support Our Stinson has raised $90,000.

Sports Illustrated takes a look at the implications this trial will have on the sport of high school football.
