Concussions in High School Athethes Featured Tomorrow Morning on ESPN: Outside the Lines

This Sunday, ESPN's Outside the Lines 9:30 AM Eastern Standard Time, will focus on concussions in high school athletes.

From ESPN.com -
"On gridirons across America, young people are playing football -- and inevitably getting hurt. Football is a contact sport and injuries are commonplace, but recent studies show that the number of high school players who get concussions each season range from five percent to as much as 47-percent. Not only are many high school programs understaffed with medical personnel, but it's also common for high school football players keep their symptoms from their coaches or trainers for fear of losing playing time. Coming up on "Outside the Lines," with the long term impact of concussions on NFL players making headlines, we examine a far bigger problem. The concussion epidemic on the high school level"

My friend, Sports Legacy Institute President, Chris Nowinski will appear as a live guest after the piece airs.  Chris is the author of Head Games, a superb book on the crisis of concussions in sports.
