Tim Tebow Act has high school sports associations divided
Associations Now
The name Tim Tebow elicits a wide variety of reactions across the sports and religious communities and the public in general.

USA Today
In case you have not noticed, the bats in high school baseball are not what they used to be. In 2011, a rule change prohibited any and all aluminum bats that did not have a "BBCOR" stamp on it. Why is that stamp so important? BBCOR stands for "Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution" and the idea behind the bats is to minimize the trampoline effect of a ball jumping off of a bat.

NBC News
Concussions in the NFL and the NCAA get most of the attention, but the problem is just as big — if not bigger — at the high school level, where more than 1 million boys a year risk potentially brain-damaging concussions.

Bill requiring heart screens for Texas athletes unlikely to make it out of committee
The Dallas Morning News
While nothing is officially over in the Texas Legislature until the regular session comes to a close on June 1, it looks as if a bill requiring heart screens as a prerequisite for participation in high school athletics has failed to make it out of the Senate's Committee of Education. The committee rushed through a series of votes on Thursday without bringing the measure up for a vote.
