Players taken down by the heat, but football practice goes on

. Saturday, August 14

Yeah, football season is cranking up. Teenagers end their summer early to begin practice and get in shape for the games that will soon take place. But for 3 Arkansas high school football players, practice is on hold. Instead, they are in the hospital, in induced comas, fighting for their lives.

Despite constant warnings from the news, meteorologists and the medical community at large, football practice is in full swing in record-breaking heat and humidity. The severe conditions just may cost these younguns their lives, all in the name of sport.
