As football practice begins to ramp up throughout the state, a University of Arkansas professor is helping to educate parents, coaches and trainers about the dangers of heat-related illness.

Brendon McDermott, assistant professor of exercise science, studies heat and hydration issues and works to educate groups about ways to avoid illness — and possible death —while exercising in the heat.

McDermott, who is also a certified athletic trainer, is featured in an hourlong documentary about those potential perils produced by the Arkansas Educational Television Network.

The documentary airs Monday on the network.
