The high school football season has kicked off across Minnesota and players’ safety is a big concern.

There is no doubt that good equipment can help keep football players safe, but can the right helmet actually bring the number of concussions down?

There is a fight – on and off the field – about that issue and whether helmets can reduce the risk or even prevent concussions, an injury that can be life-changing at all levels of play.<
