Prep coaches discipline less, mentor more
The Tennessean via USA Today
Most coaches have changed how they communicate, instruct and discipline athletes now versus 20 to 30 years ago. How much have student-athletes themselves changed during that time? "Times have certainly changed," said Cookeville, Tennessee football coach Jimmy Maynord. "But, they're still 15-, 16- and 17-year old kids, and they look to you as a mentor."

How does 1960s high school PE compare to today?
The Blaze
Roughly 50 years ago, the high-intensity PE courses at La Sierra High School in Carmichael, California, actually became so notorious that then-President John F. Kennedy implored other schools to use the California high school as a model. Fast forward to current day and the obesity epidemic is out of control and schools are increasingly cutting out physical education to focus on testing.

Nevada school's sports shed causes major controversy
KLAS-TV
A Las Vegas-area high school sports program could be in jeopardy, and a coach's job on the line, over a donation meant to help student players. There isn't a parent at Arbor View High School who's not aware of the "clubhouse controversy." It started two years ago with a group of baseball parents who simply wanted to improve the Aggies' facilities. The parents came up with drawings and financing for a clubhouse, but couldn't get an answer from the school administration about moving forward with any plans.

How a rule change juiced softball scoreboards
The Dallas Morning News
In 2010, the last season before the pitching distance was increased in high school softball, the UIL state tournament could be summed up as "Pitchers 1, Hitters 0." The Class 2A, 3A and 4A title games went extra innings before anyone scored. And the losing teams in all five title games combined for 55 strikeouts, and most notably, zero runs. A rule change in 2011, increasing the distance between the pitching circle to home plate from 40 to 43 feet, has given hitters a better chance.

Why does the Army care so much about women's lacrosse?
ESPN
The Army believes there is a crucial relationship between an athletic background and being a soldier. As the military prepares to allow women on the front lines of combat in 2016, there is an immediate need for strong, tough women from within the Army's ranks. And, in a philosophy often mentioned on the West Point campus and believed by Gen. Douglas MacArthur himself, the Army believes athletes make better soldiers.

Fore eyes: Glasses can protect golfers from devastating injury
By Denise A. Valenti
Shouting the warning term "Fore!" in advance of a golf stroke is standard practice and part of the game. The need for such a warning is clear, but where the term came from is not. Regardless of the origin, the need to warn other golfers of a ball being hit is important. Although rare, golf injuries to the face have been identified as the most devastating of eye injuries in any sport.

Why Texas bill aimed at saving lives of athletes lacks support of medical professionals
The Dallas Morning News
State Rep. Wayne Smith's legislation — House Bill 767 — would make Texas the first state in the nation to require a heart screen known as an electrocardiogram before competing in high school athletics. "The bottom line is, if we save even one kid's life, this is worth it," Smith told the committee. Yet, the widely held consensus among doctors' advocacy groups in America, such as the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology, is that mandated ECG screening is unwarranted.

West Virginia studies whether to expand offseason practice schedule
MetroNews
West Virginia defensive coordinator Tony Gibson calls the state's limitations on off-season practices "the biggest disadvantage" facing high school football players and hurts their college recruiting opportunities. A proposal nixed in 2014 would have allowed high school coaches to stage summer-long practices, more in line with what's found in other states. Now the proposal is back and goes before the state Board of Education.

Toxic turf? Momentum grows against synthetic turf
New England Center for Investigative Reporting
Artificial turf fields, cushioned with recycled crushed tires and increasingly in demand for U.S. athletic complexes, are getting some serious pushback. Increasingly, many places nationwide are debating costly plans to build new, or refurbish old, artificial turf fields, and sports enthusiasts who love the vivid-green fields for their durability and easy maintenance are bracing for new opposition from parents of budding athletes about the safety of crumb rubber pellets.

Jury awards injured high school football player nearly $1 million
The Associated Press via ABC News
A former Iowa high school football player who suffered a serious head injury during practice has been awarded almost $1 million in a negligence case against the district and a school nurse. Kacey Strough, 18, had a pre-existing condition known as "cavernous malformation," or abnormally formed blood vessels in his brain. He sustained a concussion in October 2012 that aggravated this, but his attorney claimed Strough was allowed to continue practicing and playing for the Bedford High School football team despite having visited a school nurse.
