By - Riley Patterson
I bet that you didn't know that 140,000 high school football players suffer concussions nationwide annually. Young athletes should not play football. According to "Orlando orthopedic center" 1 athlete sustains a mild concussion every game.
To begin with, most kids do not know how dangerous getting a concussion is. Their are some serious things that can happen if you get a concussion. An example is if you get more than 1 concussion you can become paralyzed. Though playing football is fun, it can still be very dangerous.
To conclude, kids should not play football. When you see that kids are getting severely hurt, that is a problem. Although it may be fun, there are big consequences to it!
