Canton Football Coach Back In Hospital

Another setback for Canton head football coach Gary Joe Kinne has he continues his fight for recovery from last April's shooting.  Canton ISD Superintendent Dr. Jerome Stewart said today, after last Friday's game, Coach Kinne had complications that needed immediate medical attention. He was admitted to Baylor University medical center in Dallas. I talked with some family members tonight, who said Kinne remains in fair condition. Dr. Stewart says Kinne is working with his doctors to find the best course of action for treating his problems. Surgery is one of those options. But, Stewart went on to say, he is amazed at Coach Kinne's courage and determination and won't rule out him returning to the sidelines for the Eagle's next game on Cctober 7.
