Coaches and doctors say the sport is safe
President Barack Obama stirred the hive when he was asked about football. He said if he had a son he'd have to "think long and hard" before letting him play. But experts say football isn't the only high school sport with concussions.
Coach Mark Smith says he's certainly glad the Manziel family let the Aggies' star quarterback play for him.
"If you allow your kids to get out of bed and leave the house in the morning then you're running a risk that something could happen."
Coach Smith says concussions happen in all sports, including girls' basketball and soccer. Dr. James Muntz, team doctor for the Astros, Texans and Rockets says the President's message isn't bad.
"I think it's appropriate. I think everybody is aware this is an issue and attention brought to safety; that's probably a good thing."
But Dr. Muntz says safety advances are made every day and parents shouldn't keep kids from playing football.
