A sad day at Beckman High and for former Wilson high coach, and Temple City graduate Brian Mustain

The biggest fear for all high school football coaches, parents and players during the grueling two-a-days is heat exhaustion, especially with temperatures exceeding the 100’s this past week in the San Gabriel Valley. As a sportswriter, it’s the story you never want to report on, the death of a young athlete.
On Friday, Kenny Wilson, a 16-year-old strong guard at Beckman High School in Irvine collapsed and died following football practice. The paramedics came and attempted to rush Wilson to the hospital, but he died on his way there. Capt. Stephen Miller of the Orange County Fire Authority said Wilsons death appeared to be heat related, but an autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.
Miller’s coach, Brian Mustain, is well known to this area. He played high school football at Temple City and later coached at Wilson High School. To to the Wilson family and Mustain, our deepest condolences from the San Gabriel Valley.
