INDIANAPOLIS - Nearly 100 of Indiana's best high school football players will now play with new technology.
For the first time ever, all players in the 2014 Indiana All-Star Football Classic will play with an impact-detecting sensor attached to their helmets.
If a player takes a hard hit on the field, a red light will turn on, alerting officials that the player may need to be checked out. Check out our previous story on the sensors to get a deeper look.
Officials said this will help with the issue of players not reporting concussions because they want to return to play.
The sensors won't change the way the game is played, or even prevent players from injuries, but designers and parents hope it changes the way concussions are discovered with young athletes.
