Atlanta High School Students Win the Brock Safety MVP Contest!

Is safety as important as winning to your school sports team? That’s the question students nationwide answered in Brock’s Safety MVP Contest, which was created to recognize U.S. schools that place a high value on student-athlete safety in light of the growing youth sports concussion crisis. A lot of great video submissions were received and top honors went to Atlanta high school juniors Brendan Rosenberg and Jacob Schlanger.

“Our coaches’ start every season talking about safety and making it a priority,” explained Rosenberg. “The school’s philosophy is not ‘to win at all costs’ because each coach wants his or her players to be healthy, safe and have longevity so they can continue to build a winning team season after season.”

Rosenberg, a student at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School and Schlanger, who attends North Springs High School, took a humorous “Sports Center” approach to the topic as you can see in the video below. Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School will receive the competition’s grand prize of $5,000 worth of sports equipment for their team.

“We were deeply moved by the terrific entries received,” said Dan Sawyer, CEO of Brock International.  “Our team hopes this contest brings more attention to the proactive efforts taken by coaches, schools, parents and America’s youth to reduce the quantity and severity of injuries on the playing field.”

When the game clock hits zero and the final buzzer sounds, all that’s left are the stats. But win or lose, each team names one most valuable player for the game. What if safety was named the MVP in every game? What if safety was as important to each player as winning?
