Part three of this week's edition of High School Lites - 2/16
Welcome back. Ever to continue to minimize injuries in high school football the national federation of state high school association football rules committee has instituted new rules they'll take effect this fall. To address helmets coming off of players' heads during games from midwest orthopedics at rush sports medicine orthopedic physician Joshua wandering explains. The new rules -- take a fact. Last year they passed a rule stating that if a player's helmet came off during the course of play they had this about the next play. -- it's about one play before they can come back again. And this year they they took it one step further in and basically said that once there helmet comes off they're kind of out the action so. They can't be hit by an opposing player when their helmets often. And on the flip side. That you participated in play and block when there helmets off as a. The rule change regarding -- coming off players' heads is designed to make the game safer. And not put players in vulnerable situations like they have been in the past. Obviously if that helmet going up against someone that's not wearing one you know it could it resulted in in something fairly catastrophic and so. You know in in terms of you know is the rule basically designed towards. Concussion specifically I don't necessarily think it's that it's more just kind of changing the nature so that that and an athlete who's had his unprotected isn't. Vulnerable. Doctor -- understand your asking players to do something against their football instincts. But says it's imperative coaches continuously remind their players to stop playing their helmet comes off. In the situation of football you've got people kind of battling on the line for position and helmet comes often. I guess you know they're just expected to kind of throw their hands up then and and yeah out of the play which kind of goes against every every instinct that a football player pats and and you know it it may change the culture a little bit but.
