  • Donnovan Hill, RIP

    Such a sad end for this young man who died during a pressure ulcer debridement procedure. His SCI resulting from "head spearing" taught to him while playing Pop Warner football was featured in an ESPN documentary and a legal case whose ramifications forever changed youth football.

    So tragic that a routine cut that simply missed the mark took this young man's life.
    T3 complete since Sept 2015.

      Saw the documentary; hadn't heard of him prior to that. My high school track coach was great, but some of the other coaches cared about winning more than the athletes.
