My Body Paragraph #1

To begin with, Many of young football players are choosing not to play football anymore. Many of the children's parents considered that the game was to risky. Also,Even some professional NFL players wont let there own kids play football. Additionally, Kids may think that football is fun and adventurous but really it is fun and dangerous. When children ask there mothers and fathers if they want to play football they need to stop and think about what can happen. You can turn your back for one second and boom your child can have a minor problem for the rest of his life. Football can cause permanent damage or even death
