Dyan Hes is a New York City physician and mother who is refusing to let her son play tackle football, and she told the New York Post about it. Her 12-year-old son, Dean Zilbeman, has played flag football for six years and loves the NFL. He's devastated that she won't allow him to play, but as a pediatrician, she has her reasons:

I see too many patients with concussions. I think I’m extreme. I’m much more cautious than other parents because I’m a doctor and I see what happens.
