HS Football: Rattlers must adapt to new UIL rule changes
Football is a violent game.
However, awareness of health issues due to the game’s physical nature has been brought to the forefront at the NFL level and has made its way to high school.
Increased health and safety regulations for San Marcos High School football players will soon be implemented. The University Interscholastic League has set new rules on practice limits for all Texas high school football players, effective Aug. 1.
During the regular season and postseason, no football player is allowed to participate in more than 90 minutes of full-contact practice per week.
Mark Soto, SMHS head football coach, has stayed ahead of the UIL curve when it comes to increased regulations for his team.
