Football's Risks Sink In, Even in Heart of Texas
The New York Times
Amid widespread and growing concerns about the physical dangers of football, the Marshall Independent School District school board approved plans in February to shut down the district's entry-level, tackle-football program for seventh graders in favor of flag football. There was little objection. "I'm surprised, in some ways, because you know how it is in a one high school town where football is everything," said Marc Smith, the superintendent of the Marshall ISD.

More Concussions Reported Among High School Athletes
Reuters via Fox News
Between 2005 and 2012, concussions among high school athletes became more common with every passing academic year, according to a new U.S. study. "It's an observational study, so we can't draw any conclusions," said Dr. Joseph A. Rosenthal of Wexner Medical Center at The Ohio State University in Columbus who led the research. The results are consistent with other studies noting an increase in high school concussions in the last 10 years.

Push to Require CPR, Defibrillator Training in Illinois High Schools
Chicago Tribune
George Laman wonders why nobody used the nearby portable defibrillator to restart his daughter's heart when she died while practicing with her high school drill team. Eric Bell says he is alive today because his son learned CPR. Now their two suburban families have formed a partnership that's behind state legislation to require high school students to learn how to use the heart-starting device and perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

The Concussion App
MyChamplainValley.com
For years, Rice Memorial (South Burlington, Vt.) senior Katrina Derderian underestimated how powerful a concussion can be. "I thought concussions were a myth before I got them. You almost can't see anything wrong." Of course we now know that concussions are very real. Derderian came to realize this, suffering from not on, but three concussions during her athletic career. Rice Memorial's athletic trainer, Meg Quiet, has treated her for all three.

Unlike other collegiate sports, there have been no studies published on track and field injuries using the NCAA injury surveillance system. Therefore, we will look at the few studies that analyze injury prevalence in track and field. A 2005 article published by Zemper in the journal Medicine and Sports Science suggested that 70-80 percent of all track and field injuries are the result of running events.

Where Cheerleading Ranks in Safety Among High School Sports
FiveThirtyEight Sports
Think of a dangerous high school sport, and football is probably the first that comes to mind. You might not think of those students in uniform on the sidelines, cheering for the players. And yet cheerleading isn't as safe as you might think, which was one of the reasons New York State — following 34 other states and Washington, D.C. — reclassified it as an official school sport last month.

Yahoo
When most people think of high-injury sports activities in children, their minds often go straight to the contact sports — football, hockey and wrestling. As it turns out, basketball should also be included in that list. Basketball is one of the most popular high school sports, with over one million participants annually. From slamming into other players when going up for a rebound to slipping and twisting an ankle when going in for a layup, basketball presents a lot of risks for children.

Don't Jump to Bad Conclusions by Cutting PE
The Times of Northwest Indiana
In this age of tight school budgets, politicians and school administrators are always looking to limit or reduce expenses. And one of their favorite targets when they start swinging the financial ax is physical education.
