As students head back to school after the summer, it's time for the football team to dig in, start training, and get ready for those all-important games. Unfortunately, along with the start of the football season comes the potential for injury--and football players have a higher risk for injury than participants in any other sport. Whether you're out on the field for a game or in the middle of an intense practice, however, the last thing you want is to end up with an injury. Not only are injuries painful, they could potentially take you out of the game when you need to be there the most, making it impossible for you to be seen by college scouts and decreasing your chances of that all-important athletic scholarship. Here's the good news: some of the most common high school football injuries can be avoided with proper care and effort.
