What college football teams see in high school coaches
USA Today
But with Tony Sanchez who made the leap from Bishop Gorman High School to UNLV head football coach, as the leading evidence, and with a healthy assist from the successful turns of active FBS head coaches with similar backgrounds, major-college programs are rolling the dice more than ever with coaches fresh off the high school ranks — far more often than not as a valued assistant, both on the field and off.

Deaths of mother, grandmother can't stop recruit's college football dream
Bleacher Report
For Joe Broadnax of Dallas Bryan Adams High School, signing his national letter of intent to play football at TCU meant a son would fulfill a promise made to the mother he lost two years ago. Before Broadnax could make it to college, life dealt him a series of melancholic haymakers. On Dec. 2, 2012, his grandmother, Claudia Mae Lydia, died from various medical conditions. The next month, he had to bury his mother, Vonceia D'Ann Lydia-Broadnax, who had heart issues. Almost exactly a year later came the death of one of his favorite uncles, Emmett Lydia III. Three deaths. Thirteen months. Seventeen years old.

Athletic tape may have limited benefit for pain
Reuters
Therapeutic tape reduces chronic muscle pain better than no treatment at all but isn't better than other methods, according to a new analysis. After reviewing published studies, the researchers found the tape, which often goes by the name Kinesio, may help in the reduction of pain, at least in the short term, compared to sham therapy or when it's used in addition to standard treatment, wrote Edwin Choon Wyn Lim, the study's co-author.

The machine that goes 'ping': Stolen base success rates in college baseball
SB Nation
If you've watched much college baseball, even if it's just the College World Series in June, you've probably noticed some not-so-subtle differences between the college and pro game. Of all the differences, perhaps the starkest is the emphasis on smallball in college, where teams often play for one run at a time. This is due to a number of factors, which include but aren't limited to decreased pop from the newest BBCOR regulations, the inability of teams to field more than one or two elite offensive players in a given season, and the lack of physical maturity (strength) among most hitters.

Is football nearing a cultural crossroads as concussions grow?
NBC News
Football, the game that sacked baseball as the national pastime, may not exist as we know it in 10 years — as evidence mounts that brain damage from big hits has infected the sport from the NFL all the way down to youth leagues, experts assert. The pipeline of future players is shrinking. High school football participation has dropped by nearly 2 percent since 2008-09. The number of Pop Warner players — who can start playing at age 5 — decreased by almost 10 percent between 2010 and 2012, ESPN has reported.

University of Newcastle via HealthCanal
A school-based physical activity study called ATLAS (Active Teen Leaders Avoiding Screen-time) has achieved the double "whammy" — a marked improvement in fitness among adolescent boys and a reduction in television and video game usage. Chief investigator professor David Lubans, from the University of Newcastle's Priority Research Center for Physical Activity and Nutrition, said ATLAS used simple and enjoyable resistance-training exercises to pry teenagers off the couch.
