Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff and head coach Mike Smith joined former Falcons linebacker Buddy Curry earlier this week to speak to parents at a Heads Up Parent Informational Session at Flowery Branch High School for the Flowery Branch Junior Falcons.

Dimitroff and Smith welcomed parents and youth coaches in attendance and discussed the NFL’s dedication to health and safety issues as it relates to all levels of football.

The coaches and parents learned about the importance of heads up tackling, concussion awareness and proper equipment fitting.

The Heads Up Football program ensures a positive youth football experience and advances player safety by providing league wide coaching education and teaching resources that benefit players, parents and coaches.

USA Football is the official youth development partner of the NFL, and the youth leagues in Georgia are among more than 900 youth football organizations nationwide that will incorporate Heads Up Football into its 2013 season.
