More Girls Are Playing Football. Is That Progress?

More girls are playing high school football, even as the sport draws fewer participants overall in an injury-conscious era.

At Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis on Sunday, the National Football League will host its third Women’s Summit “to discuss how football and the broader sports world can continue to support the advancement of women on and off the field,” said Kamran Mumtaz, an N.F.L. spokesman.

The sport remains male-dominated, with no women playing in the N.F.L. and few on college teams. But some high school girls, playing on teams of boys, are gaining attention for their achievements.
