We hear about these collapses every few months or so... somewhere in the U.S. Usually they result in a death. And it always seems to be because of the medical team finding some undiagnosed heart condition. I think it's time for there to be physicals before they can play football that would check for these conditions if possible. If we can't find them before they happen right now, research needs to be aimed at doing so.

My heart goes out to Ben and his family. Hope and pray everything is back to normal soon.


Thank you Tyler. You are a true hero. I'm sure the family is grateful you paid attention during the training and not just looked at it as another requirement that you had to do and be done.
