And quickclot is designed for gun shot wounds and stabbings. I'm not to sure how useful it would be for an arterial bleed like that.
I'm sorry but that first paragraph is confusing. I can't believe that any trainer would be "Oh my, a femoral bleed, I have to make sure I don't cause any trauma that would preclude this player from playing later on"

Life and death, stop the bleeding ABC's, standard stuff.

All the rest.
I think might want to research that a bit.
