Coach Admits Denying Water To Players

The coach accused of causing the death of a high school football player admits he denied players water.

The Louisville Courier-Journal reports Pleasure Ridge Park coach Jason Stinson admitted to police that he refused to give water breaks to four players when they asked last summer during practice.

That's the same day 15-year-old Max Gilpin collapsed in the heat. He died days later.

However, Stinson says Gilpin wasn't one of the players who asked for water.

Stinson is charged with reckless homicide in Gilpin's death.
