Concussion Prevention Training for H.S. Football Coaches

There's a new push to tackle the problem of concussions in high school football in Maryland.

A group that represents high school athletic teams across the state is encouraging schools to take part in the "Heads Up" football program.

At the cost of $25 per person, it will train coaches on concussion education, heat and hydration, proper equipment fitting, and tackling techniques.

The goal is to have 50 to 60 percent of teams participating in the "Heads Up" training by next year.
