Are you ready for some football???

Football. Friday night lights,  Saturday college face-offs, Sunday NFL, Monday more NFL and NOW we have NFL on Thursday evenings, too!  So lets read about football as well.

What football family doesn't talk about the Mannings? Read what it was like for Eli and Peyton growing up with father Archie in Family Huddle  a beautiful hardcover picture book.

Go Long Go Long by Tiki and Ronde Barber tells a wonderful story of teamwork, perseverance, and what it takes to be a champion.

As a parent, grandparent, caretaker it is so important to be aware of head injuries while children are playing sports.
What is a Concussion?
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Concussions can also occur from a blow to the body that causes the head to move rapidly back and forth. Even a “ding,” “getting your bell rung,” or what seems to be mild bump or blow to the head can be serious.

 Rose Under Fire, the unforgettable story of Rose Justice is forged from heartrending courage, resolve, and the slim but bright chance of survival. 
Everyone knew that football was violent and dangerous. But what the players who built the NFL into a $10 billion industry didn't know—and what the league sought to shield from them—is that no amount of padding could protect the human brain from the force generated by modern football.
This is a book to read and share with your high school age young adult. It's an unbelievable read!
League of Denial is the companion piece to Rose Under Fire. Another adult non-fiction narrative, this book examines how the NFL used its power and resources to attack independent scientists and elevate its own flawed research.
