University of Connecticut Neag School of Education Korey Stringer Institute

Korey Stringer Institute


Have you seen the "Friday Night Tykes" television show on Esquire Network?


Texas youth football coaches push kids too far during practice and force them to exercise in unsafe, harmful conditions.  They encourage helmet to helmet collisions and force the kids to wear full pads in 99 degree heat.  This will likely lead to catastrophic injury unless someone puts a stop to this.  Stand up for these children!  Let us know what you think on our Facebook page and Twitter.  This needs to stop!
