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. People have also begun to look at the governing body of a football league to see what they are doing to protect their players.
Football is contact sport and you have to physically knock down people if you want to advance in the game. Football is culturally important because most parents would want their children to be tough.

In college football games, the marks are wider because they are used more. It makes kicking games harder to manage. Also, the marks make it so that sweeps to the short side
So we asks ourselves “Is football worth it?” Without being biased, football is worth it when the child has started at the right age, because it teaches them teamwork, discipline, perseverance, communication, and the importance of family support. There is no “I” in team, and football (along with any other team sport) is a great way to teach this. Success does not happen if everyone does not do their job. Understanding their role as well as other teammates roles and knowing that every role is important no matter how insignificant it may seem,
Overall this book was very good, and one of my favorite sports books. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes football, especially if you play football. This book lets the normal person realize how sports can lift you up, and how it can crush you. Also, if you’re a parent that’s reading it, you may come to realize that you might be putting on to much pressure on your son or daughter. That’s because the parents of many players dwindle their children and
He receives tutoring on a regular basis and eventually becomes able to play football after much hard work and determination. Michael is a star player on the field and Leigh Ann is very determined to get him the NCAA Division I scholarship, but he needs a 2.5 GPA in order to receive it. Michael gets help from tutors and teachers and achieves the GPA he needs. Michael goes on to attend Ole Miss on a scholarship and is later drafted to the Baltimore Ravens. I really enjoyed watching this incredible story of one man's road to success.
By becoming proficient in three specific areas, your goal is not that far out of reach. The first step in becoming a great wide receiver is learning how to catch the ball.

In American football, coaches and players take pride in their wins, crediting the internal factors such as being in good shape and not external such as the weather. This also happened the other way so when they lost they blamed the external factors such as bad weather and do not credit the internal factors such as being in bad shape. An example of research presenting self-serving bias (SSB) is the experiment by Johnson et al (1964). They go the participants to teach two pupils; student A and student B how to multiply by 10 and 20. After learning each times table both pupils got a test.
In order to be a great pass rusher you will need many physical and mental talents. Strength and speed are things that you most definitely need, but you also need to be smart and have good technique. Our coach said “this game is 90 percent mental and 10 percent physical because if you are not mentally prepared and don’t know what to do under certain circumstances you could very well cost your team a touchdown or maybe even a game”. The main purpose of a defensive end is to contain the quarterback on passing plays and making sure the running back doesn’t get outside of you on a running play. There are 3 different positions where you could line up on the person farthest out on the offensive line.
Given the fact that, for them, the game of football is a job, they should have every expectation that their employer will protect them. Secondly, the effects of the physical contact endured by players usually are not seen until years later. Football players may think that they are fine because they get up and walk away after each hit but it is well known now that football players do suffer major physical effects. These players are suffering some degree of damage with probably every hard contact. In fact, as stated by Epstein, "brain trauma in football may start much earlier, and much less conspicuously, with hits that never raise an eyebrow, much less a penalty flag".
