That’s the headline in the Oregonian here:
“As a head coach, you start questioning, ‘Am I doing the right thing?’” Southridge’s Dean said. “Then you start talking with other programs, like a well-respected Lake Oswego, and you go, ‘Well, maybe it’s not about me. Maybe it’s a systemic problem that needs to be addressed systemically.’”
When Southridge met Lake Oswego in the season opener Sept. 4, Dean and Coury discussed declining participation before the game. They talked about organizing a summit for this winter to get a grip on the issue and plot for solutions.
“We think that football has an awful lot to offer young people, and it’s too bad that we can’t impact more people with it,” Dean said.
No, given the concussions it’s a good thing you “can’t impact more people” with football. Let them play Ultimate.
