Unvaccinated Kansas high school football coach dies of COVID

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) – The father of an football coach at a suburban Kansas City high school said he hopes his unvaccinated son’s death from COVID-19 will convince people that the disease “is real.”

Kim and Carolyn Burnett, told KMBC-TV reports that their son, Chris Burnett, died Saturday after two weeks in the hospital.

The 34-year-old coached football for Olathe East High School and an all-female team called the Kansas City Glory.

He also was studying to be a physical education teacher.
