Arkansas coaches learn heads up football

Arkansas coaches learn heads up football

CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) -- Friday night football heroes are forged in the summer heat. In recent years, protecting young football players from that heat has been the top safety concern.

But now, there's a new worry about concussions. And that's why coaches from across the state gathered on Friday in Conway.

Even the NFL is threatened by concussions and head injuries. At that level, it's about liability and the quality of life after the game.

For Arkansas high school football coaches, it’s about convincing parents that the game is safe and kids that they can have fun on the field.

“The parents are really concerned about their kids, but if you can show them that you're going to take care of their kids, I have seen an increase in kids that usually don't play are gravitating back into our program.”
