Coming Apr 12. In this clip, researchers put sensors into the helmets of high school football players and study the impact that multiple small "hits" over the course of a season can have on a young brain. In "Football High," FRONTLINE investigates the new intensity of high school football and if enough is being done to keep kids safe.
