USA Football wants to drive home the importance of player safety with a "Protection Tour."
Already uneasy about the idea of letting her 7-year-old son Jason start playing tackle football, Elizabeth Giancarli made up her mind when former NFL star Junior Seau committed suicide.
"We have been for some time concentrating on the importance of coaching education," Hallenbeck said.
"The front end has to be about proper education and equipment fitting and understanding concussions, and making sure you clearly understand how to teach tackling," said Scott Hallenbeck, executive director of USA Football. "It all starts to come together and now we are talking about a comprehensive solution. That will give us a real chance to protect this game and see it prosper."
