(Vocus) September 8, 2009 -- USA Football, the sport's national governing body on youth and amateur levels, announced today that The Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine in Pensacola, Fla., founded by renowned orthopaedic and sports medicine surgeon Dr. James Andrews, will contribute to usafootball.com and offer insight on the non-profit's advisory board. USA Football is the official youth football development partner of the NFL, its 32 teams and the NFL Players Association.

A world leader in sports health, The Andrews Institute's partnership with USA Football marks its first with a national governing body and represents its most significant foray into the grassroots sports community, composed of more than 4 million youth and high school football players.

The Andrews Institute's sports health expertise adds to USA Football's knowledge base. The Institute's Medical Director and Vice President for Research and Education DR. LONNIE PAULOS will share his player health expertise on usafootball.com and in USA Football Magazine which reaches youth football coaches in all 50 states. Dr. Paulos will also serve on USA Football's health and wellness committee.

"I am pleased to represent the Andrews Institute through our partnership with USA Football," said Dr. Paulos. "Our mission compliments the efforts of USA Football to educate coaches, parents and athletes on safety and injury prevention. I look forward to developing and implementing medical protocols and safety standards that may help further youth athletics and enhance the quality and length of an athlete's football career."

Independent non-profit USA Football, based near Washington, D.C., conducts more than 100 annual football training events nationwide offering education for coaches and game officials, skill development for players and resources for youth football league commissioners.

"Welcoming the Andrews Institute and Dr. Paulos into the USA Football family is an important development for football's future and continued strength," said USA Football Executive Director SCOTT HALLENBECK. "We're proud to share the Institute's significant insight and research with the youth and high school football community."
