Parents driving coaches away from game
The News Leader
Rob Bennett has one less job these days. The Covington High School science teacher, who is also the Virginia city's mayor, resigned as the school's boys' basketball coach in late January. Enough was enough. After taking some time off to get his master's degree, he returned to the bench four years ago. In the time away from the game something changed. That support he received from parents in the past was gone.

Raise the rim: Would boosting the basket increase fundamentals?
Fort Worth Star-Telegram
Basketball rims have always been 10-feet high since James Naismith posted 13 rules for a game he called "Basket Ball" in a Springfield, Mass., YMCA gym in 1891. The average height for men during that time, however, was 5-foot-6. Now, your average NBA player is 6-foot-7. But, over that same time period, the game has also evolved and the game above the rim is arguably the most exciting aspect. Outside of the natural talents of the players nowadays, the biggest benefit would be returning to a more fundamentally sound game.

NFL's new concussion rule continues focus on player health
By Denise A. Valenti
The National Football League has adopted a new policy that is intended to further protect players from the consequences of continued play when suffering a head injury. The new rule further expands the role of the independent athletic trainer for concussions that was established by the NFL in 2011. The 2011 policy provided for a certified athletic trainer at each game to monitor both teams. However, the trainer had no authority to remove a player from play. The 2015 policy changes this.

Texas football coach donating liver to fellow coach
Fox News
Two Texas high school football coaches are teaching the meaning of teamwork to their players by practicing what they preach, as one prepares to donate part of his liver to the other. After experiencing weight loss and other health issues, doctors diagnosed Coach John McWilliams with familial transthyretin amyloidosis, a genetic disorder involving a protein produced by the liver that eventually leads to organ failure. Fellow coach Matthew Beeler was tested to see if he was a match, and doctors determined that he was cleared to donated 63 percent of his liver to McWilliams.

Coach pulls off one of the great ball traps you'll ever see
USA Today
VideoBrief Sometimes the best action from a game doesn't necessarily come from the players on the field, or the pitch as the case may be. That's rarely been more true than this phenomenal highlight from an unknown — or at least not officially identified — prep match. With an errant pass skying toward the seats, one of the coaches stuck up his boot and stopped the ball with a blind back heel trap, knocking it straight up in the air and, whether intentional or not, to himself.

Hunger pangs no longer haunt NCAA athletes
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
After the NCAA announced a rule change regarding student-athletes' meals last April, North Carolina State hired Amanda Poppleton to be its assistant director of sports nutrition. With the freedom to give the athletes whatever they want, nearly 50 schools now have a full-time dietician. "Anything that can give a competitive edge in sports is going to get some attention," said Poppleton. "Nutrition can be that edge."

High school coaches bring a little something extra to BYU practice
Daily Herald
When between 300 and 325 football coaches from nine different states descend on Brigham Young football practice, it's not going to be the same old routine. The Cougars hosted all of those coaches for their annual coaches clinic recently and both the players and the coaches said it made a difference in how they stepped up.

Cheating, TV fame and high stakes: The cutthroat world of US youth sports
Aljazeera America
The issue of public schools' using ineligible players is routine in high school athletics and youth leagues. Governing bodies set boundaries to keep the playing field level, so to speak. If a superb athlete who lives across town can drive to a high school just to help make that school win more games, fairness is called into question.

New report provides real answers in era of health advice overload
By Natalie Rodriguez
The recent release of the Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee has American health nuts jumping for joy. This 571-page report of medical and scientific research promotes a "culture of health," in which a healthy lifestyle is "easy, accessible, affordable and normative." This may finally be the answer to our collective cry for sound health advice. The truth is Americans in the digital age are generally confused about their health. New studies emerge every minute, it seems, on the greatest options for the healthiest lifestyle.
