---- — Do you think more needs to be done to protect high school athletes from injury?

"Ever since I got out of high school, they have been doing much more."

Kurt Abrahams, Johnson City, student

"I think in contact sports like football there's only so much that can be done, and I think schools are doing that."

Allan Blocher, Walton, retail

"Even in the NFL they keep on changing policies on hits, so I think that schools could always do more."

Cody Zullo, Davenport, unemployed

"Those injuries are really fluky so I don't think there's much more that can be done."

Mallory Nuss, Oneonta, homemaker

"I'm sure they need to do more, I would say updating helmets would be the best idea."

Kelly Russi, Oneonta, retired
