I'm a fan of football as much as the next guy.  What I'm not a fan of is all of the head injuries that have been showing up.  The head injuries that cause long term affects but some don't get noticed for years after.

There will be a court hearing in Albany this week that will determine if New York will ban children under the age of 12 to play tackle football.

The hearing will show recent research saying that more brain related injuries happen to kids under the age of 12.

Download the WOLF App for updates as this continues thru the courts.

I am totally OK if the outcome is for not allowing football under the age of 12.

I remember being a 12 year old and the last thing I was worried about was getting hurt or hurting someone else.  I wasn't careful about how I tackled, etc.

Let's keep our youth safe.
