Hall of Famer Barry Sanders and 77 others who have played in the NFL will serve as USA Football ambassadors to work with youth leagues in the Heads Up Football program to enhance player safety.

More than 900 youth leagues across the nation have adopted the program, which emphasizes proper tackling technique — keep your head up — along with concussion recognition and response; coaching certifications; properly fitted equipment; and coaches trained to implement Heads Up Football.
