Arizona schools get acclimated to limited-contact football practices

The Arizona Interscholastic Association made national news during the spring when it announced the state would become the first to limit full-contact practices by high school football teams.

The Cronkite News Service, via KTAR-AM, looked at how the new full-contact practice guidelines are working. They started at a Mountain Ridge High School practice led by coach Bobby Green.

Bob Colgate, director of sports and sports medicine for the National Federation of High School Associations, said the new rule takes football down the right path.
