How Dangerous is High School Football?
The Daily News Journal

Knox saw playing time early during the Stars' historic season that ended in the Class 6A state semifinals. But a concussion forced him to the sideline where he was forced to be a spectator for more than half the season while his twin brother, Andrew, and his teammates played on without him.

NFL Wants Team Doctors to Say Hello to Game Officials
USA Today
NFL team doctors will have a new responsibility this season: saying hi to the referee. Elliot Pellman, former president of the NFL Physicians Society and longtime medical advisor to the league, sent a memo to all head team physicians, head athletic trainers and referees asking each physician to seek out the crew chief before preseason, regular-season and postseason games, usually during warm-ups.

Preventing ACL Injuries in Young Female Athletes
By Heidi Dawson
The risk of ACL injuries in female, teenage athletes is up to six times higher than in male athletes of the same age, competing in the same sports. That's a pretty scary statistic for adolescent females, their families and coaches alike. The consequences of such an injury can be huge — from a financial, physical and psychological standpoint — for both the short and long-term future of a young athlete. The average bill for surgery and pre- and post-operative care is estimated to be around the $20,000 mark. On top of the financial demand, research has shown that grades often drop, at least in the short-term and that girls are less likely to return to sports after such an injury.

Does NCAA Face More Concussion Liability Than NFL?
USA Today
Adrian Arrington would like to drive a car again. A 27-year-old former college football player, he would like to be allowed to work. He would like to be left alone with his three young children without fear of them witnessing him having a seizure.

Simple Ways to Treat or Prevent an Ankle Sprain
Stack.com
A sprained ankle is one of the most common joint injuries, prompting many athletes to consider it "just a sprain" and not treat it with the respect it deserves. The consequences of this neglect are persistent weakness, instability in the joint and the likelihood of repeated sprains. Ankle sprains are so often mistreated (or not treated at all), that experts say they have the highest recurrence rate of any joint injury, and they can result in chronic symptoms.

Concussion Conundrum: Banned Use of Helmet Caps Sparks Controversy
The Coloradoan
No sport accounts for more traumatic brain injuries among high school athletes than football. That sobering fact has caused a push for better recognition, and better protection, for high school football players. The problem is, Dr. Steve Yemm said, there is currently no piece of equipment that can prevent concussions. That means the concussion rate among high school football players of 76.8 per 100,000 athletic exposures, according to two independent studies, will likely remain stagnant for some time.
