Former Clear Lake football player sues school district, says injuries connected to weight training program

CLEAR LAKE — A former student at Clear Lake High School has filed a civil lawsuit against the school district for injuries connected to his participation in weight training for the school’s football team.

The lawsuit states that 19-year-old Parker Crispin suffered severe, continuous and permanent bodily injury because of required weight training sessions.

Crispin in the lawsuit claims that Clear Lake teachers and administrators were negligent and did not adequately instruct and coach him in practice and execution of the weight training program used and developed by the district.

The lawsuit says due to those injuries, Crispin has incurred and will continue to incur medical and rehabilitation expenses, past and future loss of physical function, and past and future pain, suffering and loss of life enjoyment.

Crispin has demanded a jury trial and is demanding an unspecified amount of money as compensation for his injuries.
