Proposed laws could impact prep sports in North Carolina
WRAL-FM
Two bills in the North Carolina General Assembly would directly impact high school athletics in North Carolina if passed. Senate Bill 649 would allow students who attend a public, private or home school the opportunity to play sports and participate in activities at a public high school if that activity is not offered at the student's school. Senate Bill 401 would allocate up to $300,000 per year "to develop and implement a pilot program for an integrated community-based adapted sports program for student with disabilities in grades kindergarten through 12."

How can coaches assure parents that football is safe for teens?
By Amanda Kowalski
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Chris Borland recently announced his retirement after one year in the NFL, citing concerns about concussions and head trauma. President Barack Obama and NFL Hall of Fame inductee Brett Favre have even admitted that if they had sons, they probably wouldn't want them to play football. So if a 247-pound linebacker, a legendary NFL quarterback and the president of the United States are worried about safety, how do you convince the parents of a 16-year-old that it's safe for their child to put on the pads? Well, you're going to need a game plan.

Tynes was one of three Bucs players diagnosed with MRSA infections during the 2013 league year. The suit also alleges that the Bucs "failed to employ necessary sterile techniques and routinely left therapy devices, equipment and surfaces unclean."

Paint it black: Michigan school converting hoops court to playground look
The Detroit News
Oakland University's home basketball court is getting a facelift, with an homage to the playground blacktop. The majority of the court is stained black with the familiar Golden Grizzly featured prominently at center court. The boundaries are painted in a darker black, with all of the lines painted white, so there's some contrast between inbounds and out-of-bounds.

Baseball players, coaches forced to get creative with indoor workouts
The Woonsocket Call
Paul Murphy had spent over a quarter-century as Rhode Island's Cumberland High baseball coach, the last 17 at the helm, and he admits he's never seen a winter quite like this one. Now in his first "spring" as Woonsocket High's varsity mentor, Murphy hasn't had the opportunity to conduct practice sessions at his new Renaud Field home, the reason being most of the infield dirt and outfield grass remains blanketed with some of the record-breaking snow accumulations inundating the state the past two-plus months.

Vanderbilt brings frenetic film study to baseball
The Tennessean
VideoBrief Game film is not a typical baseball coaching tool. But then again, Vanderbilt's Tim Corbin is not a typical baseball coach. "Video is a coach in itself to the kids," Corbin said. "These kids were born with a camera in their face. Whether it's Instagram or Facebook or Twitter, it's a visual moment for them. It incorporates a picture."

Reuters via Fox Sports
Although injury prevention programs have been shown to help reduce leg and foot injuries in sports, less than ten percent of high school coaches implement the programs as designed, according to a new survey.

Should college athletes get paid?
KQED-TV

Brain tumor survivor lives the Big Blue dream
The Indianapolis Star
Five years later, the kid with 24 hours to live still has the basketball John Calipari brought to his Indianapolis hospital room. For five years, the kid has done what doctors said he could not, graduating from Franklin Central High School for one — living, for another — and he believes this is a reason: Because Calipari told him he could. Five years later, Kevin Massey is a student-manager for Calipari's Kentucky basketball team. The Wildcats were in Indianapolis for the Final Four, which means Massey was back home. With his team. His NBA-sized friends. His coach.
