Pop Warner condemns and investigates viral violent youth football collision
 

 

The youth football organization Pop Warner is investigating a video that went viral on social media this week showing a helmet-to-helmet collision during a practice drill that left one youngster laid out on the turf, according to a report.

“We are deeply disturbed by this video and are investigating. If, in fact, it was Pop Warner coaches leading these drills, we will take action,” Pop Warner spokesperson Brian Heffron told Fox News. “What we saw was dangerous and, frankly, offensive to the overwhelming majority of our coaches who teach the sport the right way. We expect every coach to adhere to mandated training and focus on the proper, safe progressions of tackling techniques, including practice against dummies, particularly at such a young age. Over the past 10 years Pop Warner has instituted a number of player safety rules, and this example runs counter to our practices.”

The original video has more than 6 million views on Twitter and was published by user @zeekncashe with the comment “Are they too young to be doing this drill?”

USA Football – the sport’s national governing body – certainly thinks so.

“This is against everything that we in football stand for and has no place in our game — it is an affront to the millions of moms and dads who coach youth football with the greatest care for their kids,” a USA Football spokesman told Fox News.”

“USA Football’s Recommendations for Youth Play, endorsed by national sports medicine leaders, strongly prohibits what was seen here. Since 2012, more than 700,000 youth coach certifications have been completed through USA Football. This video distorts how today’s youth football should be taught and played, which is safer and smarter than at any time in its 90-plus year history.”

The video sparked outrage among former NFL players – many of whom are fathers – toward the unknown coaches. The connection between head injuries suffered in football and degenerative brain conditions such as CTE sparked a $1 billion lawsuit settlement by the NFL for retired players in 2016 and revolutionized rules and practice methods at all levels.

Here is a sampling of the angry reaction toward the eight-second video:

Former Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder wrote on Twitter, “This is child abuse. I know dozens of all pro/hall of fame players that didn’t play til they were 10+ years old. You aren’t helping ur kids. Whatever coach set up this drill for these babies needs to be fired and I would like to do this drill against him on his way out.”

Former Jets center Damien Woody wrote, “This is absolutely ridiculous by the coach.”

Former Giants offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz wrote, “This isn’t funny at all. This culture at the youth level needs to change.”

Former Eagles receiver Torrey Smith wrote, “Attention all parents! If your kid is doing this drill. Take your child off the field and don’t go back to those stupid coaches. Coaches like this aren’t safe and ruin the image of football.”

Former Steelers linebacker James Harrison — who was suspended for one game and fined $125,000 for a hit on defenseless quarterback Colt McCoy during a 2011 game — used two angry face emojis and wrote, “This right here is EXACTLY why I wouldn’t let my boys play tackle until I was done playing — so I could be there to make sure they were being taught the right way. Where’s the standards & regulations for who’s ‘coaching’ our young kids. This is a set up from the start, they knew damn well what was about to happen!”

Football as we’ve known it is headed for extinction.

The violence that comes with certain instances of contact between a ball carrier and defender is not being tolerated on any level. These kids are young, but that’s how a lot of us developed the love for football. You gotta be a lil crazy to play this sport.

these same parents will wonder why their kid can’t read or count past 25

there’s a lot of smart athletes... but they might be that way in spite of the massive repeat head trauma sustained since they started playing

Na that’s wild.

Those parents/coaches seriously need to be evaluated. At that point they’re doing it for their own entertainment.

When I was younger no This was what the first level years were. I got hit like this a couple times and dished it out as well. Now that I’m older and I see the damage it causes to some people I say yes, they are too young to be participating in contact sports like this. You can fu*k someone’s head up for life

That's crazy. Lil man's body still developing, plus at this age they still trying to get coordination down. This type of drill left for the older kids, lil dude going to end up in special ed drooling all over himself if he keeps getting hit like that.

not really they will change the helmet and take away the face mask which will help. It will look more like LFL helmets.

Having a facemask give a false sense of security take it away and you get better form tackling
