Survey Of High School Football Players Shows Many Would Not Report Concussion Symptoms To A Coach

.....The study of 120 high school football players in the Cincinnati area also found that one-quarter had suffered a concussion, and more than half acknowledged they would continue to play with symptoms of a concussion....

Comments: Teens are known to exhibit reckless behavior and unwarranted risk taking. The coaches and parents must take control of the situation and not allow these injured children to continue to play. The King-Devick Test has been shown to screen for concussion and should probably be used to help make a field side determination of the presence of concussion. DM
