I would agree for general programs, but football is different due to the physcial nature of the sport.
" The study, published Tuesday in the *[Journal of the American Medical Association] found CTE in 99 percent of brains obtained from National Football League (NFL) players, as well at 91 percent of college football players and 21 percent of high school football players."
There is a head injury risk in high school, but certainly in college. If there is an option to eliminate a 21% risk for degenerative brain disease for my kid, I am going to do what I can to prevent him from playing football. Obviously some kids get a chance of a lifetime to go to college for free and that risk might be worth it, I would rather they try other sports.
