It is due to #covidvaccine until proven otherwise. Doctors need access to CDC vaccine database for brand dose 1 2 3 etc. With vaccine myocarditis sports are not allowed because it triggers cardiac arrest.

Truth : Josh Davis Did Not Collapse From Vaccine Side Effect!
It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Josh Davis Collapsed Suddenly During Practice
Josh Davis (born August 13, 2002) is a former Carlsbad high school football player who joined the Utah State University’s Aggies football team in February 2022.
Some people appear to be confusing him with a different Josh Davis (born Joshua Davis on September 21, 1998) who plays for the Weber State Wildcats as a running back.
The Utah State Josh Davis was training with his team at the Merlin Olsen Field at Maverik Stadium on Thursday, March 23, 2023, when he suddenly collapsed on the field.
He was immediately treated by the Utah State University (USU) training staff and emergency medical personnel. He was later taken to the Logan Regional Hospital and then the McKay Dee Hospital, where he was stabilised and underwent therapeutic hypothermia to preserve his neurological function.
Although he was initially not identified, Utah State University later issued a statement identifying him as Josh Davis.
Davis, a redshirt freshman wide receiver from Carlsbad, California, collapsed during practice on Thursday and was immediately treated by USU’s athletic training staff, led by Mike Williams, Associate Athletics Director for Sports Medicine, followed by emergency medical personnel, who transported him to Logan Regional Hospital
Davis received initial critical treatment and was stabilized at Logan Regional Hospital before being transported to McKay-Dee Hospital, where their critical care team continued treatment with therapeutic hypothermia to lower the body temperature to preserve his neurological function.
Davis’ parents, Matt and Chrissy, arrived in Utah Thursday evening, and were met at the hospital by Utah State Team Physician Dr. David G. Liddle, Interim Athletics Director Jerry Bovee, head football coach Blake Anderson and athletic trainer Kendra Gilmore.
Fact #2 : Josh Davis Suffered A Sudden Cardiac Arrest
Utah State University then shared a photo with an update on Friday, March 24, announcing that his condition was upgraded from critical to “Fair Condition” that morning.
It also stated that Josh Davis collapsed after suffering a “non-traumatic sudden cardiac arrest“.
Josh Davis, a football player for Utah State, has been upgraded from critical to fair condition as of Friday morning, following a non-traumatic sudden cardiac arrest during Thursday’s spring practice on Merlin Olsen Field at Maverik Stadium.
Aggies head coach Blake Anderson praised the USU training staff for their quick action, which likely saved Josh Davis’ life.
Awake, alert, and breathing on his own. The training staff absolutely saved his life. No hesitation all. Miracle.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Josh Davis Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19
Josh Davis never publicly revealed his COVID-19 vaccination status, so it is unknown if he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.
The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, which is why many people like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley and Stephan Bonnar were never vaccinated.
Utah State University (USU) required students to be vaccinated against COVID-19 for Spring Semester 2022, but dropped that requirement for the Fall 2022 intake.
Since USU calls Josh Davis a freshman (first year student), it is likely he joined USU in the fall, which would mean he was not subjected to the earlier vaccine mandate. That does not mean he is unvaccinated. It simply means – we don’t know his vaccination status.
Until and unless his family reveals his vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Josh Davis was fully-vaccinated or boosted is likely lying to you.
Fact #4 : Sudden Cardiac Arrest Is Common In Young Athletes
Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that young, healthy people do not suddenly collapse from cardiac arrest. The truth is many young athletes do suddenly collapse from sudden cardiac arrest, and many don’t survive unless they receive medical attention quickly.
The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year. Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.
The risk of developing sudden cardiac arrest increases during strenuous activities, which is why many US states enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.
And no, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause cardiac arrests, no matter what anti-vaccination activists may claim.
Neither can COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from getting cardiac arrests, or dying from them.
