Should Young Athletes Play Football
Should players rethink their decision to play?
Football keeps young athletes healthy, and even teaches moral lessons. To begin with, according to Amir Khan from US News , “A lifelong interest and commitment to health and fitness has never been more important as we face a widespread increase in sedentary lifestyles and childhood obesity". Football is a sport that keeps kids active, and encourages them to have a healthy lifestyle. The text says that being healthy and fit is now more important than ever, and football helps kids know that. Football also teaches other lessons. Jennifer Shotz writes, “Young athletes learn discipline, focus, teamwork- skills that will help them be successful later in life”. Parents would probably like their kids to be responsible, and this text confirms that football definitely helps with that!
