Just read this sad tragedy that resulted out of a helmet to helmet hit during a high school football game. Its heartbreaking to hear how football, our beloved pastime, can cause pain and death to so many players. Yet, instead we watch it more. I am the first to admit I am a fan of football and thoroughly enjoy watching football surrounded by family and friends with people cheering on either side. Yet, I am still disguested at how we can allow so much to happen to players. I know there are engineers out there working on developing a perfect helmet but still, football is a dangerous sport. Its a risk all players take but brain injuries are not something for the light of heart. I pray for Damon Janes family and friends to continue to heal and coupe with his loss. I hope that his death is not in vain but that people take the time to learn safer methods to tackling the opposing team and not touching the head, the helmet or the neck.
