    High School Football Players Prevent Concussions

    Wednesday, August 6 2014 10:45 PM EDT2014-08-07 02:45:13 GMT
    Back to school means the start of high school football season. While the game can be fun for both the athletes and fans alike, certain plays can be dangerous. Concussions are common in football. In July, a federal judge approved a settlement between the National Football League and 4,500 former players who sued the league for concealing the long-term health risks of concussions. Those risks can begin in high school athletics.
