Volunteer Official Dies After Injury During Althoff Football Game

Belleville (KMOX–Belleville News-Democrat) A long time volunteer who worked as a sideline official at Althoff Catholic High School sports events died Friday night hours after he was injured during the school’s football game with Collinsville.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that 80 year old Frank Antoine went to the ground during a play along the sideline. It wasn’t clear if he was hit by a player or simply fell. Witnesses say it appeared Antoine’s head may have hit some concrete.

He was transported by ambulance to St Elizabeth’s Hospital-then transported to Barnes-Jewish where he died.
