Another high school football player dies after a head on head collision. A young ilfe cut short way to soon. A tragedy for sure. Education, better coaching, and impact devices in helmets can only do so much. Officials can only do so much, but in many cases not enough.
One of our three high school hockey goalies has already gotten a concussion during "Captains Practice." The official season starts in November. Hope he recovers in time.
Unless those with all the power in youth sports intervene to demand changes, the
status quo will continue, and more and more kids will be seriously
injured, some lasting for a lifetime. Who has the power to make youth sports safer?
Moms, says longtime hockey and lacrosse coach, Hal Tearse.
