On Friday, Marco Contreras, the football coach at Kingsville Gillette Middle School, in Corpus Christi, Texas, died after he collapsed during the high school’s game against Tuloso-Midway.
After he collapsed, first responders attempted to perform life-saving measures but were unsuccessful.
Contreras, who was said to be in his 40s, was not only a coach, but was also a teacher at CARE Academy.
The Kingsville High School football match against Tuloso-Midway was rescheduled to Saturday night.
Tuloso-Midway made entry to the game free and accepted donations for Contreras’s family.
