I just came across this article from the New York Daily News where the author suggests that children should wait until high school to play tackle football.
The article references a couple of recent events – Bo Jackson saying he wouldn’t have played football if he knew about CTE and Mark Gastineau’s revelation that he is dealing with several neurological issues.
I agree with the author’s recommendation. Flag football is an excellent alternative to tackle for children before high school.
