Football - The Walls Brothers

Great story by ESPN on the three Walls brothers, all playing at Georgia Tech, and all playing with hereditary heart problem. You know, what's interesting about this story is the fine line between the aggressive push of head coaches to teach kids new limits to their abilities, and at the same time monitoring their personal health. It's not uncommon to see one or two stories in a year about a kid dying during some workout. In many of those cases they find some type of heart defect or abnormality.
