I’m glad that Harvard has taken the initiative to post a blog on this topic because it is such a shame that so many football players, as well as other sports players, are putting themselves at great risk every time they go out to play a game they love. As long as everyone protects themselves, and plays wisely, I think these injury related deaths will decrease.
