A groundbreaking study from Boston University released on July 25, 2017, found chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, linked to repeated head trauma in nearly every brain donated, even in high school football players.

For CEO of i9 Sports Brian Sanders, this research further underscores the importance and growth of youth flag football leagues and drives the mission of i9 Sports to ensure parents of athletes high school-aged and under understand the alternatives to tackle football.

Lindsay Kalter of the Boston Herald spoke with Brian on what this means for programs like i9 Sports and how to keep injuries from becoming normal or accepted in youth athletics.
