Dying to Play.
Miller, John K.
American School Board Journal, v185 n8 p28-29 Aug 1998
In August 1995, a young football player died as a result of heat exhaustion suffered on the first day of football practice in Arkansas. Spurred by this tragedy, the district made some changes that every school district with an athletic program should consider. These include using a heat-stress monitor; abandoning the practice of group physical examinations; and hiring a certified athletic trainer. (MLF)
