State Lawmaker Wants Less Tackling In High School Football

By Metro News

Springfield, IL  --  Less tackling in high school football seems almost impossible to regulate.  But one Illinois lawmaker is trying to make it a reality.  State Rep Carol Sente says students should only be allowed to tackle during one practice a week.  She says doing so would protect athletes from having brain damage from repeated hits.
