sleep deprivation in teenagers may hurt more than their grades... it may lead to sports injuries!

a study of about 100 high school athletes in los angeles shows those who slept at least 8 hours each night were 68-percent less likely to be injured on the playing field than those who got fewer hours of shut eye.

specialization in certain sports or number of hours played did not have the same impact.
