I didn't let me kid play that young and actually not crazy about the kids playing at younger ages as their bones are still pretty soft until they get older....5th or 6th grade is a good time to start, though my kid was pretty big for his age and started in the 4th.  But at that age, they are so padded up and are moving pretty slow that concussions are going to be a rarity.  My son really never got his bell rung until high school.  I was a helmet nut too and he always had the best helmet I could afford to get him each year, so that probably had a lot to do with it.  Even when I had a youth football team, I spent extra and bought good helmets.  I've been booed by parents for pulling a good player off the field if I even thought he had a possible concussion, which luckily none of them ever had (just bells rung). The biggest problem is parents and coaches thinking with their jock straps instead grey matter when it comes to concussions.  Concussions are real and a good coach should be on the lookout for them, leave their jock in the car, and think about the kid instead of the W. I don't blame the game or want it to be destroyed because of an injury risk, but I do blame coaches and parents for ignoring the symptoms at the kids' expense just so they can say they won....stupid.   

Well said, JAF! Couldn't agree more! The real problem is when money and fame begin to creep into the equation. At the college level, a coach has to weigh his own interests and the interests of the school against a possible concussion. At the pro level, it gets worse as the athlete himself has to consider his own risk/reward equations as well! Scary stuff for sure!

Maybe a little shuffling of the deck??

Central - Bullying people around!
CW- Solid D and Solid O making plays. 
ET - Playing good football at the rt time.
Buchanan - Might have blown their load against Central
Clovis - Steady all year just haven't won the big game yet
Bullard - a couple of wins back to back might turn them around.
Liberty - Same as Bullard
Bako - Struggling all year to figure it out
Sanger - This week will tell us a lot.  Just might not have the horses to beat the top teams in league.  Coaching could make the difference in this one
Ridgeview - Not the same as in years past.  Lacking the overall talent to compete consistantly.

I don't have children so I don't know how I would feel about it to be honest. Your son played at a high level. If you had seen "Concussion" when he was 5 years old, would you have allowed him to play football?
