At your request, I have examined the article “Concussion fear and all, one moms defense of youth football” by Kavita Varma, to see if it will be best to be published in The Shorthorn newspaper at UTA. By my examination, I concluded that your article should not be published in The Shorthorn newspaper at UTA. The article looks perfect and well formatted, but this should not be published in The Shorthorn. The author provides great evidence for moms and dads or any other family members to be concerned about putting their young children into youth football, but this is not significant to UTA students.

The article is significant to the parents to get information about their young children playing youth football, and by explaining the audience to come out and support the game.
