With concussions becoming more common, there has been a lot of talk about how to make football safer over the past several years.
One idea that often gets thrown around is limiting kids’ exposure to the sport until they reach a certain age that football can be considered ‘safe,’ at least relatively speaking. Some legislators in California evidently believe in that idea and have proposed a bill that would ban organized tackle football until high school, according to a report by the Los Angeles Times.
The legislators cited multiple studies showing that exposure to tackle football at an early age can lead to increased risk of brain damage later in life.
