The future of the football program at a New Hampshire high school could be in jeopardy as a school board member is on a mission to ban the sport.
Paul Butler, a retired doctor and former high school football player himself, said the sport is just too dangerous.
"A game that uses the head as a battering ram is not a smart game to allow a youngster to play," he said.
Butler does not have much local support for his proposal. He admitted that he doesn't currently have enough votes to actually pass his ban on high school football.
He said his effort is just a first step.
