American football remains one of the most popular sports for young athletes. abstract The injuries sustained during football, especially those to the head and neck, have been a topic of intense interest recently in both the public media and medical literature. The recognition of these injuries and the potential for longterm sequelae have led some physicians to call for a reduction in the number of contact practices, a postponement of tackling until a certain age, and even a ban on high school football. This statement reviews the literature regarding injuries in football, particularly those of the head and neck, the relationship between tackling and football-related injuries, and the potential effects of limiting or delaying tackling on injury risk.

CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Most injuries sustained during participation in youth football are minor, including injuries to the head and neck. The incidences of severe injuries, catastrophic injuries, and concussion, however, are higher in football than most other team sports and appear to increase with age. Player-to-player contact results in an increase in the number of subconcussive impacts that occur during football. Concussion is associated with player-to-player contact and tackling, in particular. Severe and catastrophic injuries, particularly those of the head and neck, are associated with tackling, often when improper and illegal technique, such as spear tackling, is used. Efforts should be made to improve the teaching of proper tackling technique and enforce existing rules prohibiting the use of improper technique.

..

1. Officials and coaches must ensure proper enforcement of the rules of the game. A significant number of concussions and catastrophic injuries occur because of improper and illegal contact, such as spear tackling. There is a culture of tolerance of head first, illegal hits. This culture has to change to one that protects the head for both the tackler and those players being tackled.  Stronger sanctions for contact to the head, especially of a defenseless player, should be considered, up to and including expulsion from the game. The culture should change to one of zero tolerance of illegal, head-first hits.
