Coaching high school American football offensive linemen to reduce injury


Author(s): Cole Popovich and Joe Deutsch

Abstract: Protective gear is essential in the quest to limit athletic injury as much as possible. American football is no exception. In fact, due to the physical nature of the sport, American football players need more protection than any other sport. Offensive linemen, in particular, need everything from proper cleats to knee braces. Not only do they need specific equipment, but they need to understand the proper way to make contact with the helmet and head in order to avoid neck and spine issues. Player safety should be the most important aspect of any sport, especially contact sports like football. Players should be required to wear appropriate gear and taught appropriate technique from a young age, in order to alleviate as much potential for injury as possible.
