Chart: Prep football coaches sound off on concussions

Coaches sound off:  Bad form, bad results

« it certainly is more a part of our consciousness. Improper technique is more than a detriment to winning, it is a detriment to an athlete's well-being. » Carl Lemke, St. Croix Lutheran

Less aggressive play?

"Overall, it has been a positive experience, but I have noticed a few missed tackles. This reluctance has caused a few sideline tackles that would have been routine turn into a missed arm tackle or a shove." -- Ed Perrault, St. Paul Academy

PAYING MORE ATTENTION

"I do believe that the kids are paying closer attention to what we have been teaching them. Concussions 10 years ago were almost a badge of honor. Now the kids understand the seriousness of the injury." -- Jason Telecky, St. Michael-Albertville

BACK TO THIRD GRADE

"We have always been a stickler on fundamentals, especially when it comes to tackling. It is like third-grade football every day at our practices." -- Sean McMenomy, DeLaSalle

CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY

"There is so much fear around concussions that an athlete will say, 'I think I got a concussion after a big hit.' They don't realize the gravity that statement carries. Our hands are tied until the doctor clears them." -- Brian Vossen, Lakeville North
