American Football is a hot topic, Especially due to recent studies about concussions in sports. It is obvious when watching football on the weekend to see the brutality in which players hit one another. However, Youth should stay legal for youth and high school students because of the benefits it brings.
First, American Football creates a sense of community like no other. Anyone who has been on a football team knows the bond that exists between the players. This bond give children who would otherwise be lonely a chance to socialize with other kids. If there is any problems, The team sticks together and sports one another. I have played many sports, The the sense of community is unique to football alone.
Second, American Football teaches kids responsibility and leadership. Responsibility is key to football, Since players have to practice on their own time to be able to compete. They have to make sure they don't hurt themselves or their teammates by practicing safe tactics. Youth develop leadership skills because the sport requires communication and action in order for a team to be successful.
Finally, Youth football allows less fortunate children to be bale to concentrate on something other than their struggles. Many elite players came from places that are not commonly described as the wealthiest places on Earth because football provided a way out of their hectics lives. The community the football builds is able to triumph all the tension they may face in their everyday lives.

In conclusion, American football should stay legal for all youth and high schoolers
