I played football from 4th grade till 11th. It was a sport that forced me to grow physically and mentally. I interacted with kids that I wouldn’t normally have done things with and had some really great coaches. Coaches that helped me become who I am today as a person, much more than as an athlete. With all that said I am not sure that I would push my son to play football. With all the findings and discussions related to head trauma, concussions, and injuries I am just not sure it would be worth the risk. We love football at our house, but it makes me really think. So this article caught my eye.
Can changes not just to the equipment, but to the practice techniques and coaching help to keep football from becoming boxing?
