Someone has an agenda, in my opinion
That being said top 4 sports for HS concussion rates in order
1. Girls soccer
2. Girls BB
3. Girls VB
4. Boys footballhttps://www.washingtonpost.com/news/rec ... a22f950686
That being said soccer will not grow as it is limited to how many can play and be carried on a team (maybe 20ish).
Football has more opportunity to actually play being you have your starters, reserves, special teams and specialists and likely can have 30+ kids actually play in a given game compared to soccer likely no more than 15 actually play.
Note the article showed a 100 trying out for very few spots.
This is why track is the ultimate for HS participation, everyone is a starter and can compete. The goal in most instances is a personal best and in that there is always a level of success.
Track and field is also the equalizer as there is no luck related such as bouncing lucky fumble, lucky catch or shot, blown call etc. etc. etc. It all comes down to performance.
Note many football players think they are fast until they come on the track and then politely quit when they realize that 11.5 is a FS time and most skills cannot do that even
