Requiring photo ID could be key to safer environments for fans at high school sports events
USA Today
Photo identification is required to buy tobacco and alcohol, to board a plane, to vote in some states and increasingly, to attend a high school football or basketball game. Several school districts across the country have started carding would-be spectators in recent years in an effort to increase security at after-school athletics events, and turning away those who fail to produce a photo ID to gain admittance.

Why do former high school athletes make more money?
The Atlantic
This project was a slam dunk, that one was a home run, and it's just the way the ball bounces — the last thing the business world needs to catalogue its accomplishments is another facile sports metaphor. But it's not just athletic metaphors that proliferate in the business world — it's also athletes themselves. A recent study documented just how much the labor market smiles upon people who played sports as children: Former high school athletes generally go on to have higher-status careers than those who didn't play a sport.

Are great coaches becoming an endangered species?
Changing the Game Project
When you are in the coaching profession, one of the things you learn early on is not to take things too personally. Your biggest fans when you win may become your biggest critics when you lose.

DI coaches uneasy, compelled to recruit 8th-graders
Charleston Gazette via Athletic Business
Offering athletic scholarships to athletes before they've reached high school is legal under NCAA rules, and it is part of a growing trend in college recruiting. Coaches race to lay claim to prospects as early as possible for fear of losing them later. NCAA guidelines say coaches cannot initiate contact or make formal scholarship offers to student-athletes until their junior year, and recruits cannot sign a binding National Letter of Intent until their senior year. But social media, loopholes in NCAA rules, online recruiting services and the preponderance of video footage available of young players are allowing the courtship to begin earlier than ever.

By Heidi Dawson
A video recently went viral across various social media platforms. It claims to "finally" show us what that extra lace hole at the top of your running shoes is really for.

Winston-Salem Journal

Philly.com
In the heat of the game, baseball and softball players know that whether they are pitching or throwing to third to get a runner out, their throwing velocity is crucial to the game. However, most traditional training programs which focus on increasing muscle endurance in the core — the proximal segments of the pelvis, spine and trunk — have not had a lot of success in improving throwing speed.
