Recap from check in day

Heat Wave

2 Georgia prep football players die - Sports- NBC Sports
Dangerous year due to the heat. A coach and now two players and I think it's probably safe to say this won't be the last. What's the answer? And why is it different now then 50 years ago? I'm guessing the precautions weren't nearly as stringent but this seems like a recent epidemic. Hell watch a little of the Junction Boys ESPN movie and you wonder how it didn't happen far more regularly. Bigger kids? Supplements? Is the heat just that extreme or is it simply media coverage?
