PBS show examines high school footballPBS’ “Frontline” investigates the new face of high school football by profiling tiny Shiloh Christian of Springdale, Ark., in “Football High,” airing at 8 p.m. Tuesday on OETA-13. The program details the Saints’ year-round training regimen. “Frontline” looks at intense training practices in Arkansas, where two players collapsed from heatstroke last summer while practicing. One survived, but the other died in the hospital three months after his collapse. Only one of the boys’ teams had an athletic trainer on staff, which reflects the reality in most of Arkansas: Only 15 percent of state schools have a certified medical professional at games and practices, slightly below the national average.
