IHSA to vote on limits to contact in football practice
Illinois high school football players might not be able to hit as much in practice. The Illinois High School Association is expected to vote in June on some new rules to limit full-contact practice.
The IHSA governs high school sports in the state. It's board of directors has been discussing a plan that would limit teams to three days of live-contact practice. Players would also be barred from having more than one full-contact practice a day.
The IHSA board of directors discussed the plan Tuesday. They are now looking for feedback before a vote on June 15. Any changes would take effect ahead of the 2015 football season.
