Atlanta High School Students Win Brock International’s Safety MVP Contest
Date:6/5/2013

Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) June 05, 2013

Atlanta high school juniors Brendan Rosenberg and Jacob Schlanger took top honors in Brock International’s Safety MVP national video contest to showcase why safety is as important as winning to their sports team. As incidents of concussions and brain injuries in youth sports continues to escalate nationwide, Brock launched the effort to recognize U.S. schools that place a high value on student-athlete safety.

Rosenberg, a student at Holy Innocents' Episcopal School and Schlanger, who attends North Springs High School, took a humorous “Sports Center” approach to the topic. Their video features interviews with a student-athlete and safety tips from Holy Innocents Football Coach and Junior Boys Dean Ryan Livzey. Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School will receive the competition’s grand prize of $5,000 worth of sports equipment for their team. View the winning entry at http://www.saferyouthsports.org/.

“Our coaches’ start every season talking about safety and making it a priority,” explained Rosenberg. “The school's philosophy is not ‘to win at all costs’ because each coach wants his or her players to be healthy, safe and have longevity so they can continue to build a winning team season after season.”

The Brock Safety MVP Contest is part of the company’s Safer Sports from the Ground Up community outreach effort (http://www.saferyouthsports.org). Brock International’s PowerBase YSR safety and drainage layer used underneath synthetic turf fields is the only product of its kind scaled to the ideal footing requirements and safety of high school and middle school athletes. The company’s PowerBase technology has been proven to decrease G-max, which may reduce the risk and severity of concussions, and injuries to hips, elbows and knees caused by high body to surface impact. Brock PowerBase is currently being used by hundreds of high schools and middle schools, the University of Maryland, Boston College, Boise State, UCLA, Georgia Tech, Stanford University, and in practice fields used by NFL teams such as the San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots and the Arizona Cardinals.

“We were deeply moved by the terrific entries received,” said Dan Sawyer, CEO of Brock International. “Our team hopes this contest brings more attention to the proactive efforts taken by coaches, schools, parents and America’s youth to reduce the quantity and severity of injuries on the playing field.”
