Gov. Scott Walker has on his desk new legislation that would require young athletes suspected of having a head injury to be removed from the activity until he or she can be evaluated by a health care provider.
Randee Drew saw stars as he dropped to one knee. Moments before, the 190-pound Northern Illinois cornerback attempted to tackle a 270-pound Wisconsin Badgers tight end in a game at Camp Randall Stadium during the 2002 season. "I whacked him with everything I had," said Drew, a member of the Nicolet High School Athletic Hall of Fame. "I was kind of woozy for about two plays," he added during a recent interview. "I said, 'Please Lord, don't throw the ball over here,' because I wasn't all there." Given the hard-hitting nature of football, there is not much that can be done to prevent concussions, according to Drew. However, Drew said that once an athlete is dazed by a big hit, trainers, coaches and parents need to proper care is given to …

Unbeaten Red Devils are too fast, too good in every phase in taking 27-0 victory.
For most of the 2011 season, defenses had no answer for the Brookfield Central spread attack. But Kenosha Bradford aced the exam on Saturday. The Red Devils (12-0) forced four turnovers, limited the Lancers (9-3) to 213 total yards and came away with a 27-0 victory in the WIAA Division 1 Level 3 playoff game. Central saw Kenosha Bradford score on its very first possession, with a 70-yard throwback screen. That was all the points the Southeast Conference champions would need, as they stopped Central on a series of fourth downs, forced two third-quarter fumbles and picked off a pair of passes. DeMario Harris carried 16 times for 98 yards, but the Lancers' second-leading rusher, quarterback Jason Meichtry, netted just 7 yards on 13 carries. …
