Caden Sterns had this to say about a youth football drill
Denver Broncos safety Caden Sterns responded to a video posted on Twitter of a football drill. The second-year Broncos safety has seen a lot of hits at practice during his time playing football. Sterns was not impressed with what the kids were being asked to do in the video.
The video shows a drill where a defender and ball carrier run full force into each other. The ball carrier and defender both keep their heads up and have a helmet-to-helmet collision. The child playing defense violently falls to the ground.

Sterns doesn’t think kids need to be doing these types of drills at that age. “Way too early of age for kids to be doing this type of stuff,” Sterns wrote on Twitter.

It was a harsh collision. Hopefully, that doesn’t cause permanent damage. The kids also showed terrible technique as they stayed high and put their heads in a dangerous position. If the coaches can’t get these children to display proper technique, they don’t need to be doing drills like that.
Sterns has been around long enough to what’s appropriate for what age. Those types of drills just aren’t worth it at that age. These kids are way too young to understand the ramifications of CTE if they don’t take care of their heads.
