GARY, IND. (UPI) - Veteran football coach and official Don Elser died Friday night of an apparent heart attack. He was 55.
Elser, a former Big Ten football official, had been coach in recent years at Mann High School. He collapsed and died about an hour after Mann lost a 19-0 game to Hobart. He was taking an injured player to a hospital for treatment when he was stricken in his car as he stopped in the parking lot at the hospital.
