GHSA Expands Role of Wetbulbs in Summer Practices

GHSA Expands Role of Wetbulbs in Summer Practices

We've had some rainy weather, but you know in a few days that sweltering Georgia heat will return.

Last year, the Georgia High School Association dictated that teams have a device that measures the heat and humidity in the air.

It's called a wetbulb.

This year, they amended the rules to include summer workouts.

Here's how it works and why one trainer thinks it will save lives on the football field every August and September.

As coaches drive kids on the field, there is always a person standing on the sidelines keeping an eye on the Georgia sun rays beating down on the grass.  Brad Miles is an athletic trainer.

"The idea is you do not come out to practice if it's too hot," he said.

Miles helped mold the policy that has a microphone-looking device shooting out readings that immediately get documented.
