New safety rules in California have been put in place to protect kids who play high school football.
They limit tackling in practice both before and during the season -- all in the name of limiting injuries and concussions.
Parents are divided, however.
SPECIAL REPORT: High School helmet safety study
NBC's Ron Mott reported on the law California Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law late Monday.
The rule restricts full-contact practices to just two sessions a week of no more than 90 minutes each during the preseason and post-season.
NBC reports that 37 other states have similar laws on the books.
In Texas the laws are even stricter -- just one 90-minute full-contact session is allowed per week.
Ohio has yet to take such extreme measures.
