NFL Finally Settles Concussion Suits Who Will Play In Super Bowl XLVIII?

After a long drawn-out affair, the NFL stepped up and delivered on an overdue suit by agreeing to pay more than $765 million to settle lawsuits from thousands of former players who developed dementia or other additional concussion-related health problems that players say were caused by the on-field violence and trauma from hard hits to players heads.

The settlement was announced last week and is subject to approval by a federal judge.

U.S. District Judge Anita B. Brody in Philadelphia said the settlement holds the prospect of avoiding lengthy, expensive, and uncertain litigation, and of enhancing the game of football.

As many as 4,500 former players, some suffering from Alzheimers disease or depression, have accused the NFL of concealing the long-term dangers of concussions and rushing injured players back onto the field while profiting from the crushing hits that the NFL is famous for.

Big Plays Hurt Tri County in Season-Opener

It was a tough assignment for Tri County facing last years Class C-2 state-runner-up, Sutton on its home field Aug. 30 in the Trojans season-opener.

Sutton finished the 2012 season with a record of 12-1, losing the Class C-2 title game to Aquinas Catholic.

The Trojans came up short on the scoreboard losing 52-19 to the Mustangs.

It was a learning experience for our young players on Friday night. We saw some positive things for sure and saw some underclassmen come in and make some plays, but we didnt play good assignment football and gave up way too many big plays, Trojans coach Brett Scheiding said.

Things looked promising early, but due to some regular missed assignments we kept coming up short on both sides of the ball. We expected some growing pains along the way and played a very quality opponent in Sutton, Scheiding said.

Rushing touchdowns for the Trojans were scored by Wyatt Kowalski, Colby Ensz and Sam Schmidt.
