For many kids in our area, summertime means going to camp and having plenty of fun. If you’re a youth football player, there’s even more reason to be happy thanks to the creation of a new football camp.
Assemblyman Michael Benedetto said he believes the measure could potentially prevent young kids from getting concussions, which run the risk of causing brain damage.
“Historically, youth football has fueled the NFL,” according to Dr. Keith Strudler, Director of The Marist College Center for Sports Communication. “Parents’ concern about the safety of the game could jeopardize the future of the sport.”
