LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A judge has ruled that a former Kentucky high school football coach should face one trial on charges of reckless homicide and wanton endangerment in the death of one of his players.

Jefferson Circuit Judge Susan Schultz Gibson on Thursday also said attorneys for David Jason Stinson would need to ask for a delay in the scheduled Aug. 31 trial if they need more time to prepare their case. Stinson has pleaded not guilty to both charges.

Both charges relate to the August 23, 2008, death of 15-year-old Pleasure Ridge Park High School lineman Max Gilpin. Gilpin had collapsed at a football practice three days earlier.

One of Stinson's attorneys, Alex Dathorne, said the defense is ready for trial.
