FAYETTEVILLE — As football practice begins to ramp up throughout the state, a University of Arkansas professor is helping to educate parents, coaches and trainers about the dangers of heat-related illness.

Brendon McDermott, assistant professor of exercise science, studies heat and hydration issues and works to educate groups about ways to avoid illness — and possible death — while exercising in the heat.

McDermott, who is also a certified athletic trainer, is featured in an hour-long documentary about those potential perils produced by the Arkansas Educational Television Network.

The documentary airs Monday on the network.

It's good to see the sports administrators taking heat related injury/illness seriously.
