Favre issues statement that kids shouldn’t be playing tackle ball before 14.

Good stuff.

A few years ago I read an article that at a minimum 12 years old should be age when kids start playing tackle football. It discussed brain development including the cerebrospinal fluid.

Anyway my son didn't start tackle football until he was almost 13. He played safety and didn't take any hits to the head.

Sorry if this derails the point, but a guy citing scientific reasons to protect one’s health…and then the end of the article…I’ll just leave it at that.
