The test that could save student-athletes' lives
WPXI-TV
According to the National Center for Catastrophic Injury, 12 high school and college football players die each year. Since the early 1990s, more than 200 players have died; 100 of those deaths were caused by an undetected heart problem. A Stanford University study found the routine use of an electrocardiogram, or EKG, on young athletes was a cost-effective way to identify those with potentially life-threatening illnesses.

The New York Times
Word came to Jason Puello in September that he was too old to play basketball in his senior year, when he would have been the starting center at a small alternative public high school in Washington Heights, New York. Now, with the support of his school and a team of lawyers, Puello is asking a judge in State Supreme Court to overturn the decision of the Public School Athletic League. His lawyers argue that the rule banning him is "arbitrary and capricious."

Can high school athletes succeed after playing multiple sports?
Los Angeles Times
When Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton signed the richest contract in North American sports history, it was irrefutable evidence validating the idea that teenagers who play multiple sports in high school can still fulfill their sports destiny at the highest level. During his senior year at Sherman Oaks Notre Dame, Stanton was All-CIF in football after catching 11 touchdown passes. He was All-CIF in basketball after averaging 19.7 points and 13.5 rebounds. And he was All-CIF in baseball after batting .393 with 12 home runs.

Parent dilemma: When a kid's concussion lingers on
WBUR-TV
When Eli Davis was 15, his ski popped off in the middle of a steep, bumpy slope and he went suddenly airborne, then landed hard, the back of his head slamming down against unyielding ice. That was his first concussion. A few months later, at soccer camp, he was defending the goal when a breakaway player took a shot from just five feet away and it rocketed right into his face.

Your school lost every game? Hey, better luck in the postseason
The New York Times
The inclusion of winless teams in the playoffs is an unintended consequence of a much-debated action that Louisiana’s principals took before the 2013 season to split public and private schools into separate playoff tournaments for football. Each state is left to make its own bylaws. In a number of states, the football playoffs have expanded for several reasons: tension between public and private schools over recruiting and scholarships, inclusivity and aligning football with the postseason tournaments in other sports.
