In football, a player-on-player hit may be more likely to cause a more severe head injury than any other type of impact, a recent study suggests. Study author Julianne Schmidt, assistant professor in the University of Georgia College of Education, looked at game videos to analyze nearly 7,000 head impacts during 13 games of a high school football team's regular and postseason play. Per her analysis, the players sustained more serious head injuries when they hit another player during the game than when they hit their head on another object, such as the ground, according to a media release from the University of Georgia.
