ESPN show looks at heat stroke

SHARE ESPN show looks at heat stroke

Just in time for the start of high school preseason football practice, ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” Sunday revisited the death of former Vikings offensive lineman Korey Stringer from heat stroke after a brutally hot workout. The show not only focused on Stringer and his legacy, but featured the story of two high school football players who suffered heat stroke during an August practice. One survived. The other didn’t.

The timing of the piece couldn’t be more perfect as the IHSA implements a new policy regarding hydration for upcoming preseason practices. The first day of preseason practices for all fall sports is Wednesday.

Already, Yahoo! Sports featured one story about the perils of heat exhaustion at a preseason practice in Utah as several high school football players needed assistance during a practice. It looks like many of the players did not do something as basic as eat breakfast before reporting for double session practices.
