High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - October 29, 1976, High Point, North Carolina A High Point . Friy or Lobar of if7 knee from Moc so injuries and pre in noon he to have to do the same thing for the knee Kven with the new rules three area High school football players have suffered neck injuries this reason but second in line to the knee is the hand broken and dislocated fingers crushed Bones and fractured wrists and broken blood vessels beneath the skin have affected 16 area players and while the injuries be labelled critical they Mill require visits to the doctor for x rays and they still leave Roaches wondering who will be Able to play the head Roach answers his own questions by literally taking the doctor s orders Quot our team doctors have been super to us. Thomasville coach Allen Brown explained Quot they say Check pm rest pm. Whirlpool pm practice pm. Don t practice pm play pm Don t play pm. And we do whatever they say Brown s entire varsity squad is insured under the school policy provided by the boosters club and the head Roach feels the free cover age is something Tach player is entitled to. Quot a kid pays 620 for football shoes and f 10-15 More for Brown pointed out. Quot practice starts August i when he could have a Job for another month and that s another $500 sacrifice he makes just to play football we feel like he shouldst have to pay for insurance Quot the Only other area school whose boosters club fools the entire Bill for football is Ragsdale. Which could t be happier that the premiums it has paid his year Are not being used Quot we Haven t had any serious injuries this year and we Haven i filed any claims Quot Ragsdale head coach Rick Larrick reported. But last year we led the area in injuries we filed 65 too in claims last year Quot the tigers stray from the beaten insurance path by taking a a Hoo deductible policy which leaves the parents in charge of the minor injuries and the school responsible for the biggies Quot we be run a Little Experiment in these areas and we found that the parents used a Little better judgment whether to pay 625 or 630 to have their son checked if they were paying for it Larrick said Quot we re really concerned with the expensive things that could cause a family problems by incurring a tremendous debt when an athlete is seriously injured we have the insurance to cover him most minor injuries fall into the 635 Range according to Carrick a Price which should t upset a family s financial equilibrium very few injuries run from 650 6100 in Cost be said in a similar situation. Southwest Randolph takes a lower Premium policy than the majority because of the Assumption that most injuries Are either very minor or very serious cougars Are covered up to 61.200 under the school s policy and from 63.000-10,000 under the state association plan that obviously leaves a Gap for injuries that Cost Between 61.200 and 63.000 that n a kind of dead area payment Quot Southwest head coach Mike Osborne commented Quot we feel like our policy a carried us pretty Well. You d have to Lear yourself up pretty bad to go beyond that and if you had an injury that s that severe you d probably have a Law suit anyway Quot the t cougars have had a rough year with minor injuries losing three running backs before the season started but almost All on the casualty lift have healed Quot we be had the injuries but not the noted Osborne Southwest it another rare school that insured every one of its players this year so Many athletes Are already covered under their parents plans that most schools do not require players to take the policy they offer the premiums jumped up Between 68-12 this year Quot Trinity athlete director Paul Barnes said Quot we used to make them All take it. But now if our players have adequate coverage they have the option Quot the rising Cost has been the major reason that the school s policy is no longer mandatory As West Davidson head coach Joe Young pointed out Quot of we paid it for 38 kids. That d be Over a thousand dollars in insurance Ami we Haven t got that kind of Money we be Only got seven taking it anyway the rest Are covered by their parents Quot the Thomasville boosters club which did choose to cover every player under the school a policy forked out 62.370 in premiums this year other schools did t have a Choice but to foot the majority of the Bill Randleman head coach Charlie Gregory elaborated. Quot our county won t tot the kids pay More than 610 in insurance of our 70 players 15 or 20 have their own insurance and we pay the rest Quot the tigers pay the premiums even though they have one of the most injury free programs in the area i Don t remember a serious head or shoulder injury Here in the last 12 years Quot Gregory said Quot Kyle Petty is the Only player who has missed a game for us this year we be been real fortunate Quot others Haven been quite so Lucky i Lexington for one. Has players making trips to the emergency room with such frequency that the nurses could probably recite the starting lineups Quot i would estimate that 17 of our football players have been in us Hospital this year with something wrong with them Quot yellow jacket head coach by Hiatt said while Lexington could probably operate in own ambulance service another school across the county could open a Quot Good health clinic Bast Davidson has had no serious injuries this year according to head coach Howard Hayes the Bagle did lose tackle and kicking specialist Mark Workman to an appendicitis attack and Junior varsity player Jimmy Bales with a broken Collar Bone this season but those have been the Only mishaps for still another school that does t charge its athletes anything for insurance Quot our players had paid part of the premiums until four years ago Quot Mayes said Quot now the school pays half and the boosters club pays halt Quot the prices seem Cut and dry on paper but in spite of the fixed Dollar Marks on the charts most schools have a Little extra Cash stored away for what Denton head coach Ned Craver describes As a hardship cases Quot the reason behind the emergency funding is of course emotional As Well As financial responsibility the injuries Are statistics but the victims Are people important news for North Carolina new car buyers from motors insurance corporation and participating general motors dealers.
