A Football Player’s Last Wishes

Concussions in youth sports can have tragic consequences. The hard reality is if a kid wants to play the game bad enough, they will hide the truth to get into the game. There are many other factors that are involved as well. That’s why educating coaches is so important.  However, let’s not forget how important it is to educate young athletes on the dangers of ignoring or downplaying concussion. The end results can be devastating. Our hearts and our prayers go out to the family and fiends of Zac Easter. If you have the time, please take a few moments to read this touching story by author Reid Forgrave.  http://www.gq.com/story/the-concussion-diaries-high-school-football-cte
