  • A football player safety clinic is set for Saturday at the Santo Community Center (701 N. Columbus Ave.) in Medford.
    The clinic, hosted by USA Football Master Trainers' Terry Summerfield and Roy Thompson, aims to help develop a better and safer game of football for the Medford-area youth.
    It will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
    The clinic is part of the Heads Up Football program, an initiative led by USA Football, the official youth development partner of the NFL. Some area coaches are expected to attend.
    During the clinic, Summerfield and Thompson will guide participants through a series of drills to reinforce proper tackling mechanics that focus on reducing helmet contact. It will feature education on concussion recognition and response, and instruction on proper helmet and shoulder pad fitting.
