NFL-backed group wants safety training for all youth football coaches

(Continued)

But Michael Duerson also called for the legislation to be broader so that it would cover all youth sports coaches. He said concussions are a leading injury in girls soccer. "And now we've got 3-year-olds playing soccer," he said.
