Let Them Play
By Owen Larmon
Due to injury worries parents have been pulling their kids out of football. This has caused some leagues to be completely abolished. I play youth football and the fact that some leagues are being abolished isn't good in my eyes.
As I said I play youth football, and my coaches spent just as much time teaching us how to tackle safely and correctly as they did teaching us plays. I was one of the kids that tackled with their head down,( tackling with your head down makes a greater injury risk.) and my coaches told me that I wouldn't be able to play until I stopped tackling with my head down. What I mean is that the coaches care about the kids and they don't just see them as pawn to get back at coaches or anything like that.
