Coaches, Schools Unsure About HIPAA Rules When Athletes are Injured
The Times of Northwest Indiana
Before Jimmy Glidewell broke his ankle in a football regional championship game against Mishawaka (Ind.) in 2012, Hammond (Ind.) Morton coach Roydon Richards had told his quarterback to shake off more injuries. "The week before that, I yelled at Jimmy for always getting hurt," said Richards, also the school's athletic director. "I told him to man up and learn what an injury was. Every time he got sacked, he'd come to the sidelines limping."

Santa Maria Sun
"Who am I?" ranks high on the list of most obvious questions an introspective person can ask, but the answer doesn't come so easily. A person's identity tends to correspond with the roles he or she leads in life: Mother. Father. Teacher. Friend. Doctor. Then there's the role of athlete, an identity based on dedication, love and association with a sport. Ask college players that "obvious" question, and they will probably define themselves as a "student-athlete."
