PBS will be airing a report today about the hits youth football players take while playing the sport that so many love;
Kids who play football make — and take — hits to the head just as hard as any high school, college or NFL player. That’s what the data show; it’s not partisan, it’s not political and it’s not trying to suck the fun out of recreational sports. Journalist Stone Phillips delved into never-before-conducted research by Virgina Tech that could have a long-lasting impact on how little kids suit up for football.
The report by Stone Phillips will be recounting the work done by the Wake Forest/Virgina Tech researchers, posted here in February.
