One of the many changes that Coach Shambaugh made was hiring Coach Garett for the linemen. Coach Garett was exactly what the line needed he pushed us to expect more from ourselves and work harder.

Throughout my life football has by far been the biggest passion of mine. I watch the games that are on every thursday, sunday, and monday on the NFL and I watch the games every Saturday that are for the NCAA. I’ve been playing football since I was in kindergarten whether it was just screwing around with friends, playing on a team in a league, or playing for the school, and I have always loved it. Through my whole life there have been moments where my passion for football was so strong that I grew a love for it. One particular moment was when I scored my first ever touchdown for a league team.
The great Vince Lombardi once said “Football is like life – it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication, and respect of authority.” My father introduced me to football and coached me from a young age. He taught me lessons about life that I could only learn from the sport. Football turned me into the man I am today, from facing ridicule from the public and slander online, to having to the fill the most important spot on the field, I prevailed and thrived. Through football I learned to compete, discipline, accountability, sacrifice, and my life was impacted more than I ever knew.
Ever since I was a toddler, I loved sports. Baseball, basketball, it did not matter; I just liked to run. When I was around 4 or 5, I was in the living room watching the Steelers play the Cardinals and saw Santonio Holmes grab a game winning touchdown to win the Superbowl. I was so excited that I jumped up in the air and I told my dad, “Daddy when I grow up I want to play football and I want to score a lot of touchdowns just like 10 does.”

When a player takes a hit to the head they are evaluated by doctors of sports medicine. According to another article in the National Athletic Trainers Association, Inc. some ways they evaluate players on the sidelines are how straight they can walk down a line, if their pupils have dilated, asking them how many fingers they’re holding up, and by asking the players if they’re experiencing any dizziness or nausea. After players are diagnosed with a concussion they have to pass a cognitive assessment and a balance evaluation before they are allowed to return to play. So as we all can see there is plenty of evaluations and protocols that are already in place.
Football is an accomplishment/event that changed my life and helped me go from childhood into adulthood throughout my middle school and high school career. It did this by teaching respect not just towards others, but to me, my family and my community it also taught me life lessons that I will use for the rest of my life. In middle school, I was a very disrespectful kid who did whatever I wanted to then I joined football and it helped me change my attitude. Then in high school, I started to mature and become more of a leader and role model for other players and people around me.

Football is widely regarded as a dangerous sport full of hard hits and collisions. With recent groundbreaking discoveries related to Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), parents, doctors, and fans are starting to wonder about how safe football is. CTE has now been proven to cause depression, memory loss, and even suicide in former NFL, college, and some high school players. Although there is no way around these facts, people should be encouraged by the progress football is making to keep players safe. The greatest safety question about football is the adequacy of the equipment players use.
Although there is a lot more work to be done, the NFL and other leagues have taken a stance on the egregious situation that befalls those with concussions. There has been a recent decrease in the concussion rate due to the latest concussion protocol that the NFL and many other leagues have implemented that allow for professional trainers to look over players that are suspected of being concussed. Those players are not allowed to go back into the game if they still seem like they have a concussion, increasing the safety of those players who are unwilling to report a concussion for the purpose of being able to continue play. The enhanced detection and examination protocols have led to an 11.3 percent decrease in concussion rate. However, as stated previously, there is much more to do to eradicate concussions once and for all.
It’s rare to see the NFL under fire, but when it come to concussions, that’s a different story. The NFL claims progress is being made.

Minutes later, he was subbed back into the game. The NFL calls that progress?

Introduction It was the beginning of my 5th grade school year, and I decided that I wanted to begin a new sport. On the first day of practice, having never played the sport, our coach lined us all up on the field. Our team had a quarterback from the previous year that was returning, but he had no one to back him up this season. As coach Link stood back to examine his future team, unexpectedly, he pointed at me and said, “you are going to play quarterback”. Excited, reflecting back, it was one of the best moments of my life.
