The Chicago Tribune commentary features a picture out of Hanover.
A Chicago Tribune commentary on the safety of football written by Ralph Nader "("consumer advocate, lawyer, author and founder of League of Fans") and Kenneth Reed (League of Fans sports policy director) calls for high school football to adopt "the Ivy League's new policy of eliminating full-contact hitting from practices during the regular season, while also putting stringent limits on full-contact hitting during preseason practices."

From the commentary:
The winningest coach in college football history, John Gagliardi, coached Division III St. John's University in Minnesota to four national championships with a "no tackling in practice" policy. Mike Grant, son of former Minnesota Vikings coach Bud Grant and a former player for Gagliardi, has used the same no-tackling policy while winning 10 state high school championships in Minnesota. Dartmouth's Buddy Teevens uses a similar policy and finished in a three-way tie for his league's title in 2015 (before the Ivy League's new policy was implemented). He saw injuries go down and wins go up.
