Proposed bill would require concussion training, waiting period for football
Evansville Courier & Press
Indiana could soon become the first state to require high school football coaches to take part in a player safety and concussion-training course. S.B. 222 — authored by Sen. Travis Holdman, R-Markle — would require the course every two years. The bill would also parallel a Washington state law by requiring football players to wait 24 hours before returning to the field of play after a concussion.

4 tips for building confidence
STACK
At one time or another, most of us wished we had more confidence but weren't sure how to get it. One common misconception is that building confidence is only done with results, meaning that confidence increases if you win and decreases if you lose.
