  1. Why do I see kids leading with their helmets to create a larger hit/injury than they could with their small body? Refs and coaches let this go on. If your coach is not chewing a player out for leading with the helmet, then they're part of the problem. My sons coaching staff doesnt have an issue with kids ,"targeting" and that's a problem, a huge problem.

  2. How about before u post a story you know all the facts on this event! And pulling things off the parents Facebook that again you no nothing about.

    This child did not die because he played football!! There were underlying factors, nothing that had to do with the football game.

    This is why the media causes so much frenzy. Get your facts straight before you bring and or talk about a boy and his family that was such a tragedy!!!!

  3. Why not designing and mandating better helmets? Am I missing something here? Head injuries but they talk about defibrillators and action plans. The kids did not die of heart attacks but brain damage. Nothing they talked about will help with brain injuries. How about BETTER HELMETS?

  4. Football makes allot of money and jobs but the sport is dangerous because you have people charging at each other at full speed with their whole body. You can’t make the sport safer. It’s like how do you make gladiator games safe?

  5. Simple, hold the parents accountable. We always preach safety for our kids, but some/most parents live through their kids. Honestly/truthfully, all professional programs shouldn’t push or maybe slow down the process of nourishing that “talent”. Starting at pee-wee football or other physical sports. Think of it this way. Imagine how many hits a child takes by the time he/she get to /if they make it all the way to professional status. Money drives these parents/kids (at a later age)
