Football is a popular sport in America. It isn’t likely to go away anytime soon, despite these incidents. Researchers have been working to tackle this problem by trying to identify the greatest risk factors and learn possible methods of prevention.
One of those studies was recently released by the Datalys Center for Sports Injury Research and Prevention. Analysts culled data from more than 2,100 young football players, ranging in age from 5 to 15. These individuals were involved in more than 100 teams across 10 youth leagues in four states.
