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.

The Jacksonville Gwatney Chevrolet American Legion kids are certainly staying busy this summer.

With a roster full of young players, the junior and senior teams use many of the same players.

All the extra playing time has only seemed to help the junior team as they ran their record up to 17-2 Monday night with a 3-1 win over Benton. The juniors also swept a double-header over Sheridan on Saturday afternoon 10-9 and 9-5. The senior team fell 6-2 to a surging Cabot Centennial Bank team last week and 8-3 against Russellville over the weekend.
