PRATT, Kan. (AP) -- A 16-year-old Pratt High School football player has died after his car crossed the center line and struck a semitrailer in south-central Kansas.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says 16-year-old Drake Evert was killed in the crash at 6:38 a.m. on K-61 near Preston. The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/12PK9sn) the truck driver, Robert Myerski of Pennsylvania, was taken to Pratt Regional Medical Center but his condition was unavailable.

Pratt football coach Jamie Cruce says Evert was a popular student who was going to be the team's quarterback this fall.

A portion of the highway was closed for several hours because of the crash, which remains under investigation.
