The first day of testimony wrapped up Friday in the Louisville, Kentucky trial of a former high school football coach charged in the death of a player.
Prosecutors called four people to the stand Friday, including the mother of the player who died.
Former Pleasure Ridge Park High School coach David Jason Stinson has pleaded not guilty to charges of reckless homicide and wanton endangerment stemming from the death of Max Gilpin. The 15-year-old collapsed while running in 94-degree heat last August and died three days later.
Gilpin's mother, Michele Crockett, testified that the coach told her he had pushed the team hard that day.
Prosecutors say Stinson ran a brutal practice, denying players water. Stinson's defense said the practice wasn't unusually hard.
Testimony in trial was set to continue Tuesday.
