National Geographic : 2011 Oct
STANDING ON THE SPRAINED ANKLE that kept him in rehab for weeks, Trojans running back and team co-captain Connor Sheehan had a choice: risk another injury or sit out what could be the first play-off victory in the history of Anderson High School in Austin---the city where National Geographic followed the lives of teens last fall. He chose to play and he reinjured his ankle. Research suggests that, compared with adults, teens value rewards more than consequences. The Trojans won the game, and Sheehan hopes to play at Harvard this fall.
