USA Football Changes Rules

With acknowledgement of the dangers that come from concussions and the risks the game puts its players, U.S.A. football recently revised their rules for youth football. Changes to the rules include 6 to 9 players on the field, replacing the standard 11, as well as a reduction in the size of the field (no word on how small yet). There will be no more kick-offs or punts. Safety is the new standard of the game.
