Texas Heat and Football

From CNN Meteorologist Reynolds Wolf:

The Texas Longhorns have been playing football since 1893. Each season, before they battle the Sooners, Aggies, or Red Raiders, they first tackle the extreme heat of Central Texas. It isn’t easy dealing with the elements. In fact, it can be deadly. According to the National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research, six football players died from heat stroke last year - four in high school, two in college. They say since 1995, 39 football players on every level (pro, college, high school and sand lot) have died from heat stroke.

So how do the ‘Horns keep their players from sharing the same fate? I went through an afternoon with UT Head Trainer Kenny Boyd to find out.
