Head shot may alter high school sports rules in New Mexico
Albuquerque Journal
It was a head shot that rocked New Mexico's high school sports world. In its wake, the governing body for prep sports in New Mexico has said it is powerless to take action against a player based on postgame review of a video, no matter how clear and compelling the evidence. But video of the blow delivered to the head of a Cleveland Storm football player by a Las Cruces Mayfield defender — which an independent evaluator concluded should have been flagged and the Mayfield player ejected — could now lead to changes.

Brazil's U-17 soccer team quits by just standing there in match against US
Sports Illustrated
VideoBriefBrazil's under-17 soccer team was unhappy with their performance during their 4-1 loss to the U.S., and even less happy with the referee sending a second Brazilian player off with a red card, so they just stopped playing. With five minutes remaining in the Nike International Friendlies match in Florida, the Brazilian players just stood at midfield with their hands on their hips. The American team responded in kind, by simply holding on to the ball and waiting for time to run out.

Leonard Fournette defers prep player of year award to QB Eugene Wells
The Times-Picayune
Leonard Fournette normally is on the receiving end of handoffs, but recently it was the St. Augustine running back doing the giving, confirming a long-standing belief that his considerable talent is exceeded only by his character. In a classy act of selflessness, Fournette was named recipient of the Greater New Orleans Quarterback Club's Prep Player of the Year Award at the organization's season-ending luncheon and then immediately presented it to East Jefferson quarterback Eugene Wells.

New devices, practice habits aim to curb concussions in high school football
Richmond Times-Dispatch
Before each practice this season, each football player at Trinity Episcopal School in Richmond, Va., strapped over his helmet a black padded protective covering called the Guardian Cap, which resembles a turtle's shell. The number of concussions the team suffered in practice — the caps aren't worn during games — dropped dramatically. Only one Trinity player endured a concussion during practice this season. On average, a high school with 60 to 80 football players will have eight to 11 players experience a concussion per season.

Kinesio taping for skeptics
By Heidi Dawson
I write this article as a skeptic. I have been a skeptic since I first saw Kinesio tape in 2007 on David Beckham's bare torso. Finding information about what exactly Kinesio tape is supposed to do and how it does it is hard to come by. Despite this, its popularity has continued to grow — by last year's London Olympics, athletes of all nationalities and across all sports were wearing this brightly-colored tape. As more and more of my peers became swept along with the hype, I thought maybe it was time I gave it another look. I am now fresh off an introduction to myofascial taping course. Do you think my views have changed?
