Tragedy strikes former Jonathan George coach

Lincoln (AL) High School coach Keith Howard's team played their opening game Friday night, a 26-7 victory over Etowah (AL) High School. The game was overshadowed, however, by Howard collapsing at halftime and dying.

UK running back Jonathan George played for Coach Howard and is a freshman on this year's Wildcat team.

Howard complained of chest pains at halftime, and was transported to Riverview Medical Center in Gadsden, Alabama, where he was pronounced dead Friday night. Howard was 48 years old, and is believed to have died of a massive heart attack.
