A well known local sports booster is dead, the victim of an accidental drowning in a pond adjacent to the Strong Brothers Sports Center in Pittstown. 

Police say Matthew Philpott was checking on a pump used to drain the pond when he lost his footing and fell in.  He was eventually pulled from under the ice, his body taken to Albany Med. 

Philpott helped build the Sports Center.  Town supervisor Edwin King says Philpott has helped a lot of sports teams in the area.
