Growing up I played football in middle school & high school. Along the way, I experienced multiple concussions. Luckily, I have not experienced any side-effects from the concussions, but many are not so lucky. I love the sport & believe it teaches many lessons & brings many people together. I want to make sure generations to come get to experience it. Let’s use tech to make the sport safer.
Improved protective equipment will reduce the number of concussions & the terrible side effects. This will allow the sport to continue. Without advancement, liability associated with concussions will erode the support of players, parents, & the public. Football will decline. A tech competition unleashes thousands of minds around the world to tackle the challenge, faster than any one organization.
