Football armor does work. The National Football League continuously strives to make recommendations in order to keep there players safe. Those recommendations make there way to the college, high school and youth levels so those athletes can be kept safe too.

Though many talk about injury as a con to playing football, here are some pros:

1. Strength and conditioning required to play the game of football are good for cardiovascular health

2. Football helps you increase concentration

3. Football fosters teamwork, work ethic, leadership and time management

Whether you win or lose the game of football, like all sports, it teaches you about who you are and who you want to be, which goes beyond the field into daily life.

The number one concern with playing any sport is injuries. Some cons to playing football are: concussions, hamstring pulls, and meniscus tears.

Football is dangerous, so each player must consider the risk, but rules and equipment make it increasingly less dangerous to play the game.
