Should Football Still Be a High School Sport?

Austin Wood, Staff Writer


A big topic for everyone involved with high school athletics that everyone has been talking about is: is football a safe sport to play? There has been a lot of talk of the long term effects of football. Football can cause brain damage. I do personally believe children would be so much safer playing another sport. There has been a lot of talk about taking football out of high school sports. Too many kids are getting hurt and slowly hurting their brain. There will obviously be those parents that will be really mad that their children will no longer be able to play football, but I believe that this is what should happen and I know that a lot of other people agree with what I am saying. There are so many other sports to choose from that will keep children much safer than high school football or just football in general.
