Mayo Clinic study on HS Football

Mayo Clinic Study finds HS football does not increase risk for degenerative brain disease

A Mayo Clinic study published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings found that varsity football players from 1956 to 1970 did not have an increased risk of degenerative brain diseases, compared with athletes in other varsity sports.

 

The researchers reviewed all the yearbooks and documented team rosters for Mayo High School and Rochester High School, now called John Marshall High School, in Rochester. The high school football players were compared with athletes who did not play football, including swimmers, basketball players and wrestlers.
