What about abdominal injuries in HS football?

If you were reading USA Today Sports last week, you may  have caught my article in the sports section on ab injuries in high school football. As we learn more about the deadly impact of traumatic brain injuries, and players trying to avoid hits to the head, are tackles getting lower…and will injuries like this be on the rise?

Hear what one Florida couple calls the next concussion story. They lost their precious son in high school football and they’ve spent their energy and grief in remembering him and helping keep other youth athletes safe. Read how they’ve joined retired NFL kicker Matt Stover in calling for padded  shirts that can help protect players from abdominal injuries.
