HS FOOTBALL CHANGES-PKG


HELMET CRACKING AND PAD CRUNCHING WILL CONTINUE ON GAME DAY HOWEVER BIG CHANGES ARE IN STORE FOR THOUSANDS OF CENTRAL VALLEY FOOTBALL PLAYERS IN TERMS OF PRACTICES.

A NEW CALIFORNIA LAW SAYS PUBLIC MIDDLE SCHOOLS AND HIGH SCHOOLS CAN NOT HOLD FULL CONTACT PRACTICES IN THE OFF SEASON AND DURING THE SEASON ONLY TWO DAYS AT 90 MINUTES EACH ARE ALLOWED.

"I don't know if that's better for a kid to have 90 minutes continues hitting in a day as opposed to space out over three days."

FRESNO'S HOOVER HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL COACH STEVE NELSON IS SOMEWHAT CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE.

S/ Steve Nelson / Football Coach:37-:48

"The spirit of the rule is to keep kids safe and eliminate contact and I think the flip side of that argument, you know people could say we'll yes but you're not giving them enough contact to prepare for the contact they're gonna have in the game."

"I think it's putting my son in jeopardy."

RON MMCCONELL'S SON PLAYS ON HOOVER'S OFFENSIVE AND DEFENSIVE LINES. HE DOES NOT SUPPORT THE NEW REGULATIONS ARGUING THAT FULL CONTACT AND GOOD HEALTH CAN COEXISTS.

"If you're hydrating the kid and their nutrition is the way it's suppose to be then that's gonna help medicate the brain trauma just as much as reducing the hits."

CONCUSSIONS ARE A CONTROVERSIAL TOPIC FOR PROFESSIONAL PLAYERS THESE DAYS. IN FACT THERE IS CURRENTLY A TENTATIVE SETTLEMENT WHERE THE NFL WOULD PAY $765 MILLION TO COMPENSATE NEARLY 20-THOUSAND RETIRED PLAYERS WHO HAVE DEVELOPED NEUROLOGICAL PROBLEMS.

S/ Terry Hutchison / Neurology Prof.1:28-1:31

"It's a serious disease that has permanent consequences."

PROFESSOR TERRY HUTCHINSON OF U-C-S-F FRESNO SAYS TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY APPEARS TO BE PROGRESSIVE DISEASE.

"Ones you have an injury it starts a chain that may take years to finish developing but ends up with dementia like Alzheimer's kind of dementia."

WHICH IS WHY HUTCHINSON SAYS IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO LIMIT AN ALZHEIMER'S CONTACT AT A YOUNG AGE.

"If we can take some extra precautions that will help people in the long run then it's worth it." Return to index of stories...

"What is the oversight procedures to be in place - to make sure that this program is operating properly?"

MANY OF THE QUESTIONS FROM COMMUNITY MEMBERS AT THE FIRST CURFEW "FORUM". WERE ABOUT HOW THE LAW WILL BE ENFORCED.

MOS

"Is it just Fells Point? Or Is it east Baltimore?"

THE NEW LAW GOES INTO EFFECT ON AUGUST 8-TH.

IT MEANS THAT KIDS UNDER 14 HAVE TO BE IN BY 9-PM. AND 14 TO 16 YEAR OLDS HAVE TO BE IN BY 10 ON SCHOOL NIGHTS. AND BY 11 ON WEEKENDS, AND DURING SUMMER BREAK.

S/ Melissa Bagley/ Community member:30 -:38

"My concern is our Baltimore City police department going to get additional training for healthy interaction with our young people?"

SOME OPPONENTS BELIEVE THAT THE LAW MAKES KIDS FEEL LIKE CRIMINALS.

WHILE SUPPORTERS SAY IT'S ABOUT PROTECTING KIDS. AND CONNECTING THEM WITH VITAL RESOURCES.

S/ Sonja Merchant-Jones/ Community member:48 - 1:04

"If a child is in distress and they leave the home or the place where they live and they have no where to go, isn't it a compassionate and good thing that those centers exist to cater to the needs to the child in distress."

S/ Gary Phillips/ Community member 1:04 - 1:16 ***FIRST PART OF SOT IS COVERED WITH VIDEO***

"I just think a lot of young kids in the city are going to suffer from it. You know we couldn't come up with the money to keep these rec centers open to house these kids once you take them off the street. I don't understand that."

THERE HAS BEEN A CURFEW LAW IN BALTIMORE FOR DECADES -- BEFORE THESE NEW CHANGES -- CURFEWS FOR KIDS UNDER 17, WERE SET FOR 11 ON WEEKNIGHTS, AND MIDNIGHT ON WEEKENDS.

CURFEW VIOLATORS WILL GO TO A "YOUTH CONNECTION CENTER" -- A PLACE FOR KIDS TO BE CONNECTED WITH SOCIAL SERVICE REPS, IF NECESSARY.

PARENTS OF VIOLATORS COULD FACE FINES OF UP TO 500 DOLLARS..

"What we're trying to do is not give a record, not to impact, make sure that children are getting home safely. And we're also making parents accountable for their children."
