I got an email from my old friend Mark Hanzlik, executive director of the Alternative Weekly Network. We were together in the Lamaze class with our wives before the births of our first kids 23 years ago last week.

Mark sent me this one from the current Sacramento News & Review: “Head games: Are Sacramento-area high schools doing enough to safeguard players from football concussions?” by Hugh Biggar,

Mark’s wife teaches at Sacramento’s John F. Kennedy High School, where a player sustained a head injury in the first home game a week ago Friday. The News & Review‘s Biggar is following up on it.

Meanwhile, in Pikeville, Tennessee, the family of Kainen Boring, 17, a player for Bledsoe County High School, was taken off life support over the weekend after lying in critical condition at Erlanger Hospital ever since a helmet-to-helmet collision in practice on September 8. See
