Sickle Cell Trait


I am not privy to what happened down at the UCF Football program but I found myself concerned that we will likely see another death if we are not careful. While the death of Ereck Plancher will be remembered as a tragedy, education is important as well as best practices with coaching is one way to ward of danger. I don’t know if physiological monitoring would have saved Ereck but nothing beats a coaching eye for see something not right because symptoms are hints to want maybe going wrong. You can watch the ESPN Video and learn what happened in Orlando and think what types of warning signs we should be looking at if possible with our own training. In addition to the video an information pdf can be found here.
