Interesting Article about Texas Football

First off a quick tease, big news in coming on the book front shortly, but I’m waiting until it’s official and I have more details before I say more, but stay tuned.

Two people sent me this link today. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/12/sports/footballs-risks-sink-in-even-in-heart-of-texas.html?smid=nytnow-share&smprod=nytnow 

Interesting article about the dropping of 7th grade tackle football in Marshall, due to concussion risk. While saying football is still a huge part of Texas culture the story implied that this is a sign of a decline of the sport in general due to the danger. My gut tells me that is says more about the arguable effect youth and middle school football has in preparing players for the varsity game. I’d love to hear some thoughts from my friends in the Lone Star State.
