NCAA making changes for student-athlete safety
Sports Illustrated
Progress is progress is progress. The NCAA Legislative Council approved a few new "well-being rules" that can be made final when the Division I Board of Directors meets on April 24. Chief among the changes is that student-athletes can receive unlimited meals and snacks instead of the three meals a day or stipend previously in place.

Oregon high school institutes new codes of conduct for players, coaches and parents
The Oregonian
After a tumultuous football season, Oregon's Lakeridge High School officials have drafted standardized codes of conduct that each student athlete, coach and parent follow. The new rules follow an OSAA inquiry that determined the 2013 Pacer football team violated the organization's sportsmanship rules. The school was placed on four years of probation and levied a $2,500 fine. For student athletes, the new code requires helping opposing players up after each play, prohibits "trash talking" and questioning referee's decisions and enacts special penalties for unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness, among other rules.

Being an athletic director is an all-day job
Lancaster Eagle Gazette

The perception is high school athletic directors schedule, attend games and little else. Little, who first became an athletic director 12 years ago at age 24 and has been serving in that role for the past eight years, quickly learned there is more to it than that.
