Youth Football League Takes Educational Initiative

In this post, I need to give some love to my sons' youth football league.  This league, which is for kids from 7-12 years of age (2nd-6th grade) from 6 different communities in Northeast Ohio.  The Freeway Youth Football League, recognizing the issues of sports medicine in football, are taking some serious steps to educate themselves before it is a requirement by state law.  They have already scheduled a conference for the coaches in the entire league.  This includes approximately 50 teams with 5 coaches a piece.  Hopefully, this awareness will translate into an attentive group that is willing to learn.  Since the class is scheduled for later this month, I will update this post with how it goes.
