Former Riverhounds intern killed in Bataclan attacks

Frenchman Francois-Xavier Prevost, who had worked for the USL's Pittsburgh Riverhounds as a summer intern in 2009 and helped the club as it worked on plans for its Highmark Stadium, which opened in 2013, was killed in the attacks at the Paris concert hall Bataclan, where he was attending a concert by the American rock band Eagles of Death Metal.

Prevost, who previously went on an exchange program to the University of North Texas, came to the Riverhounds on an exchange program while studying international commerce and negotiations.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Prevost helped the Riverhounds on the design for Highmark Stadium.

“He was a big help," Gene Klein, the Riverhounds’ coach in 2009, told the Post-Gazette. "I know, with doing a lot of research for us for the stadium project, which at that time was completely in its infancy, just really in its beginning stages."
