A representative from the University of Missouri Health Care System has confirmed that Chad Stover, a Tipton football player who suffered a severe head injury in a football game against Sacred Heart on Oct. 31, passed away on Thursday morning (Nov. 14).

Various fundraising efforts for Stover's family have been planned, and community members have shown support through Facebook groups and with a hashtag #PrayForChad on Twitter.

We will bring you more information as it becomes available.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Stover family.
