BROOMFIELD, Colo. -- Wayne Voorhees has resumed coaching the Legacy High School football team after being injured in a bus crash at Denver International Airport earlier this month.

Voorhees returned to practice this week and will coach the Lightning's game Friday against Overland High in Aurora.

Two other coaches, Matt Kroupa and Kyle Rider, and 15 players were injured in the crash on Sept. 11. Bus driver Kari Chopper died.

Voorhees and Rider spent two days in the hospital, and Kroupa remains hospitalized.

The varsity and junior varsity teams were returning from a trip to Southern California where they played games.

Voorhees held a news conference before practice Wednesday to discuss his recovery, and the support he and the team received from the community.
