MyCentralJersey.com
As most high school football teams throughout the state open training camp this week, Phil Hossler has a simple suggestion for coaches, not only in New Jersey, but nationwide, which he believes could help prevent heat-related illness and death on the gridiron. A veteran certified athletics trainer at East Brunswick and member of the National Athletic Trainers' Association Hall of Fame, Hossler recommends all coaches allow players to remove their helmets while not participating in drills.

Lack of High School Athletic Trainers Seen as Part of Problem
The Herald News
High school football players increasingly are bigger, faster, stronger — better. The level of medical care awaiting them on the sideline has not kept pace. While professional and college football teams have physicians, athletic trainers and other specialists at their disposal, medical support is spotty at the high school level. For those who think new state laws aimed at proper treatment of concussions and prevention of long-term brain injury are just a first step, improving medical support is high on the list of suggested next steps.

Cleveland Clinic Sends its iPad App for Concussions to Iowa
The Plain Dealer
The Cleveland Clinic is expanding the use of its iPad app that can help detect the symptoms of concussion in athletes to a rural school community in Iowa. Rock Valley High School in Rock City, Iowa, recently started using the app for all its athletes and will be a test case to see if schools can use the app without the Clinic's support. The app, called the Cleveland Clinic Concussion System, is designed to record data on reaction time, memory, vision, information processing, and by strapping the iPad to a player's waist, also records changes in "postural stability" on both soft and hard surfaces.

NPR via KUHF-FM
For all the benefits of exercise and teamwork to the heart and head, high school athletes still lead the nation in athletics-related deaths.

NFL's Uniform Police Focus on Face Masks
The New York Times
Justin Tuck's custom face mask has inspired at least three false Twitter accounts, one Facebook fan page and a likeness in the Madden 13 football video game. But in early August, Tuck, a Giants defensive end, had to petition the NFL to keep his fearsome face mask, with a grille of extra horizontal and diagonal bars. He had to convince the league that it was not just aesthetically pleasing, but also a medical necessity.

Sports Specialization: What is the Right Age?
Philly.com
In sports medicine circles, sports specialization is generally considered to be defined as intense year-round training in a single sport, with the exclusion of other sports. It is also generally accepted by sports medicine providers and the sports world at large that there is a need for practice and training to improve one's skills and ability in any given sport — and certainly if that individual's goal is to attain an "elite" status in that sport.

Heads Up Football Program Aims to Reduce Concussion Risks
The Dallas Morning News
George Teague doesn't know exactly how many concussions he suffered playing football. The former Cowboys defensive back does know that he wasn't taught the safest way to tackle. "We were kind of taught that tackling was putting your face mask into the player, which brings more impact straight to your head," said Teague, the athletic director and football coach at Shelton, a private school in Dallas. After getting involved in USA Football's Heads Up Football program, Teague is helping teach youth and high school players a tackling technique aimed to reduce the risks of concussions and neck injuries.
