BRICK - The head football coach at Jackson Liberty High School died yesterday after collapsing at a gym in Brick.

Brick Township police say Tim Osborn collapsed while working out at Bally Fitness in Brick on Saturday. He later died at the hospital.

Osborn had been the school's football coach since it opened in 2006. He was 55 years old.

Faculty and former students remember Osborn as a teacher committed to each student.

This past season at Jackson Liberty was considered by many to be a breakthrough due to their first playoff berth since the school's inception.

Before Tim Osborn was a teacher, he had worked as a New Jersey State Trooper. Funeral services for Osborn are still being determined.
