HAGERSTOWN, Md. -- The NCAA and several co-defendants reached a landmark $1.2 million settlement Monday with the parents of a Frostburg State University football player who died from a head injury he suffered during a practice in 2011.The settlement marks the first payment by the collegiate athletic rule-maker to individual plaintiffs in a brain-injury case. The NCAA has proposed paying $70 million for concussion testing and diagnosis of current and former college athletes to settle several consolidated, concussion-related class actions.This is a landmark settlement not just because it is the first brain-injury case that the NCAA has agreed to pay a significant amount of money to resolve, but also because the stakeholders of football are now on notice that they have an obligation to protect the health and safety of the athletes, said Kenneth McClain, attorney for the parents of Derek Sheely.Sheely, 22, was a senior fullback at the Division III school when he died in August 2011. Parents Ken and Kristen Sheely of Germantown alleged in their $1.6 million lawsuit that he was a victim of second-impact syndrome -- a brain injury that occurs before a previous concussion has healed.Preseason practices at Frostburg served more as a gladiatorial thrill for the coaches than learning sessions for the players, they said in a filing.His parents contended that Sheely had suffered a concussion the previous season and was bleeding persistently from the forehead in 2011 after several days of drills. They alleged that when he complained of a headache on the day he was fatally hurt, then-assistant coach Jamie Schumacher yelled, Stop your bitching and moaning and quit acting like a p---y and get back out there, Sheely.Neither the NCAA nor the other defendants -- three athletic staff members, Illinois-based helmet maker Kranos Corp., and Pennsylvania-based helmet retailer George L. Heider Inc. -- admitted liability.The money will go to the Derek Sheely Foundation, established by Sheelys parents, to help fund research on risks to student-athletes, and a scholarship in Sheelys name. The NCAA also agreed to produce a video on head-injury risks, and to continue discussing with its member institutions policies aimed at reducing head injuries.The settlement includes $50,000 approved last month by the state of Maryland on behalf of the school staff members. Neither the NCAA nor the plaintiffs lawyers would provide a breakdown of the settlement among the other defendants. Lawyers for Kranos and Heider didnt immediately return calls and emails from The Associated Press.NCAA chief legal officer Donald Remy said in a statement that the settlement will help the Sheely Foundation advance research and education.As a leader in promoting enhanced safety in college sports, the NCAA is firmly committed to fostering greater understanding of student-athlete well-being, Remy said.Sheelys parents issued a statement thanking Dereks teammates who provided evidence.We believe that Dereks case has set an important precedent and helped shape the national dialogue, they said. We also believe that more must be done to protect athletes, and we will continue to make this our mission. Nike React Element 55 Heren Sale .

STILLWATER, Okla. -- Jordan Sterns interception in the end zone on the final play, clinching Oklahoma States 43-37 victory over Kansas State, marked the second straight contest the Cowboys secondary came up with a crucial turnover with the game on the line, and highlighted the units strong play overall this season.While the passing defense for No. 17 Oklahoma State (7-2, 5-1 Big 12, No. 18 CFP) ranks fourth in the Big 12 and 80th overall in the nation (averaging 241 yards against), the squads ability to bend but not break, particularly late in close games, has been important to its success.Theyve gotten turnovers at key times, and when their backs were against the wall, theyve played pretty well in those possessions, coach Mike Gundy said of his secondary. We need more consistency throughout the middle part of the game, on normal down and distances -- 65 percent of the game is played under normal circumstances, so obviously, thats the majority. We need to play better in those situations. I think weve given up more big plays over the top than I would have wanted this year. If you eliminate some of those and play in the intermediate part of the field, weve been OK.Sterns interception on Saturday was OSUs 11th of the season, leading the Big 12 and tied for 22nd in the nation. Overall, the Cowboys have recorded 20 turnovers, most in the Big 12 and ninth in the country. They have forced at least one turnover in every game and have come up with 10 in the last four outings.A week earlier, in a 37-20 win over then-No. 10 West Virginia, Oklahoma State recorded two second-half interceptions, including a crucial pick by linebacker Kevin Henry with 4:18 remaining that sealed the triumph. Together with a fumble recovery in the second quarter, the Cowboys totaled three turnovers in that game, with long returns giving the offense the ball inside the 10-yard line each time, and Oklahoma State scored 17 points off of them -- the final margin of victory.We practice it, and the more you practice something, the better youre going to be at it, linebacker Chad Whitener said of the emphasis on generating turnovers.dddddddddddd We work on it, we harp on it, we have goals for what we want to do turnover-wise.The secondary is led by Sterns, a senior safety who shares the team lead with cornerback Ramon Richards with three interceptions on the year and who has five in his career. Sterns also tops the squad with 60 tackles, and his average of 7.5 per game ranks sixth in the Big 12, while his career total of 284 sits fourth among active defensive backs from Power Five conferences.The unit will have its hands full Saturday, when the Cowboys host the high-powered aerial attack of Patrick Mahomes and Texas Tech (4-5, 2-4). Mahomes leads the nation with 3,886 passing yards this season, over 600 more than second-place Luke Falk of Washington State.Theyll be tested this weekend, thats for sure, Oklahoma State defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer said. Obviously, the amount of times theyre going to throw the ball will be the most of anybody weve seen this year. Between coverage when (Mahomes) scrambles and breaks the pocket, to yards after catch, all those factors, and then, if we have a chance to pick it, weve got to go up and get it. We got to steal a few possessions from these guys, some way, somehow.Gundy also cited pressure from the defensive line as a key to covering Mahomes and Texas Techs explosive offense.In playing these guys, you have to be sound in three-man, four-man and five-man pressure, in my opinion, and you have to be balanced in how you attack their offense, Gundy said. We have to be consistent in our pass rush. And we also have to understand that it may seem like your biological clock is going off as a pass-rusher, but it may not be over, with his ability to move around and extend plays. I think thats as important as any part in defending their offense with him at quarterback.---More AP college football: ' ' '
