Concussion series sees Heads Up Football as agent of change

Monday's Heads Up Football news:

As part of its series on concussions in football, the Omaha World-Herald reported that football advocates said that the game's culture needs to change and one route is USA Football's Heads Up Football program.

The World-Herald talked to Chris Bober, an Omaha native who played for eight years in the National Football League.

The Recorder in Greenfield, Mass., reported that the youth football numbers are up in its community, partially because of the Heads Up Football program. The report quoted Chip DeForest, who has been the president of the Frontier Youth Football Association for four years.
