PRP hires new football coach
Pleasure Ridge Park High School has a new football coach, who's already familiar with the team. 29-year-old Jason Hiser was hired as replacement for the former football coach, Jason Stinson. Hiser was the team's defensive coordinator last season under Stinson.
Stinson faces a reckless homicide charge in the death of player, Max Gilpin who collapsed during practice. He's pleaded not guilty and was suspended from coaching after his indictment.
New coach Hiser is among six former and current PRP coaches named in a wrongful-death lawsuit filed by Gilpin's parents. Hiser won't comment on the suit, but says the program is trying to move on from Gilpin's death.
