Three teen football deaths in the U.S.

Football is one the most beloved sports in the United States. While there are homecoming games and football fans all over the nation, there is a more upsetting and saddening part of football as well. While there have been others in the past, there have been three teen football deaths in the U.S. in the space of three weeks.

In New Jersey, family and friends mourned the death of the quarterback for Warren Hills Regional, Even Murray.

During this same time, in Bartlesville, Oklahoma they were recognizing the life of a football player from Bartlesville’s Wesleyan Christian School, Ben Hamm. He passed away September 19th, 2015 from head injuries he received during a game a week prior.

In addition to both of those boys’ deaths, another football player from Winnsboro, Louisiana, Tyrell Cameron, who played for Franklin Parrish, passed away during a September 4th, 2015 game.

There have been numerous studies in regards to the deaths of teen football players. One such study was produced by the National Center for Catastrophic Sports Injury Research from the University of North Carolina. According to their literature, there have been five football players from high schools who have died from football related injuries in recent years. Usually those injuries were spine or head injuries. There have been other deaths that may have a more indirect cause to football and those were from heart stroke.
