THV EXTRA: Arkansas high school's helmet safety ratings

THV EXTRA: Arkansas high school's helmet safety ratings

UNDATED (KTHV) -- Football is a favorite past-time for many Arkansans, but it's also a fairly violent sport which can be dangerous. For the players, there are risks, specifically for young players. Many studies show high school football is the sport with the highest concussion rate.

It's been nearly five years since Timothy Robinson last played football. He can barely speak and is confined to a wheel chair. His mom is now his primary caregiver.

"There are times I cry a lot and you know what else can I do?" Evelyn McGhee says.

During a game, the 18-year-old Alabama high school student suffered a traumatic brain injury after a simple tackle. His family later sued the helmet maker. The company settled the lawsuit for an undisclosed amount of money.

The Jacksonville Red Devils hit the diamond this past week with tough games against some stiff competition.

Jacksonville played their first game of the season Thursday at Cabot’s new baseball facilities, losing 4-3 to the Panthers. On Saturday, Jacksonville began the Red Devil Classic against a solid Beebe Badger team and picked up the first win of the season, 3-1. The Red Devils came back Monday night against Searcy, falling to the Lions’ ace 4-2.
