Ensuring Youth Sports Safety on the High School Playing Field
The Huffington Post
For over 50 years, professional and collegiate athletes have had the services of the certified or licensed athletic trainer on a daily basis. Yet only 37 percent of high schools have a full-time athletic trainer. This often prompts the questions: "Just who is taking care of your kids on the playing field? And why don't all high school or middle school aged athletes have direct daily access to an AT?"

Athletes Find Emotional Scars Need Healing as Much as Physical Ones
Beaufort Gazette via The State
J'son Campbell, stuck at the bottom of a pile, felt the pop in his knee. But it wasn't until later in the game, while chasing the opposing quarterback, that he planted his left foot and felt everything go. "I could hear cracking," Campbell, then a defensive lineman at Whale Branch Early College High School in that 2013 game, said. "I got up and it had swollen to the point it was so firm."

Blood Test Shows Promise in Diagnosing Concussions
Philadelphia Inquirer via Star Tribune
For decades, researchers have been seeking a blood test that could diagnose a concussion and tell whether it is severe enough to cause lasting brain damage. In a big step toward that goal, University of Pennsylvania scientists found that a blood protein called SNTF surged and stayed elevated in professional hockey players with persistent concussion symptoms, but not in players who recovered within a few days.

Football Brain Injuries Require More Study
Psych Central
The claim that playing football can result in lifelong damage to the brain may be premature. Reports have routinely linked aggression, violence, depression, and suicide with chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a neurodegenerative brain disease linked to playing football. But just how CTE and behavioral changes are related is an extremely complex and, as yet, poorly understood issue, write University at Buffalo researchers in a new research paper.

Iron Deficiency and the Female Athlete
The Washington Post via The Buffalo News
A year ago, running coach and veteran marathoner Kathy Pugh was preparing for the Marine Corps Marathon. But despite a tried-and-true training program, it wasn't going well. "“I just didn't have the energy,"” Pugh said. "I was struggling and felt like I never wanted to do a marathon again." What had happened? As Pugh found out through a blood test, she was iron-deficient, something not all that unusual for premenopausal women, particularly athletes.
