Illinois group says concussions lawsuit 'threatens' football
The Associated Press via Belleville News-Democrat

USA Today
VideoBrief During the men's steeplechase race at the Pepsi Team Invitational, Oregon's Tanguy Pepiot thought he had the race all locked up.

How a Texas football coach saved another's life
Bleacher Report
Though the world may disagree, Matt Beeler doesn't consider himself a hero. He may be the only one. Particularly as he continues to rest up from one of the most unselfish acts of the year. On March 26, Beeler, a high school football assistant coach at Houston's Cypress Ridge High School, gave 63 percent of his liver to fellow coach John McWilliams, who suffers from familial transthyretin amyloidosis, a hereditary disease causing buildup of abnormal deposits of the amyloid protein on organs.

Michigan coaches with nearly 150 years of experience go head-to-head-to-head for 1st time
The Grand Rapids Press
Michigan high school coaches Ken Bokhoven (Grand Rapids Christian), Roger Perkins (Kenowa Hills) and George Bitner (Spring Lake) have coached several sports over the years and continue to lead their respective golf programs. In fact, it is believed that the trio has been coaching golf longer than any golf coaches in the Grand Rapids area, so their teams have squared off in tournaments in the past. But when they got together recently, they decided that it was just going to be their three teams hitting the course. It would give them a chance to catch up on old times, swap golf stories and give each other's teams an opportunity to face some stiff early-season competition.
