    Abstract

    Football catastrophic injuries may never be totally eliminated, but continued research has resulted in rule changes, equipment standards, improved medical care both on and off the playing field, and changes in teaching the fundamental techniques of the game. These changes were the results of a united effort by coaches, administrators, researchers, equipment manufacturers, physicians, trainers and players.

    Research based on reliable data is essential if progress is to be made. Research provides data that indicate the problems and reveal the adequacy of preventive measures.
