The concussion awareness initiative CrashCourse announced on Tuesday its partnership with American Youth Football & Cheer.
I don’t remember what the final score was in last year’s Ink Bowl. The only thing I remember is that we lost.
It was a terrible, crushing experience, one that I hope to never encounter again. To fall to your mortal enemies, on your home turf, by such a decimating margin…it was the worst possible feeling. We limped off the field with our heads in our hands, knowing that we had failed.
On Oct. 18, the concussion-awareness initiative known as CrashCourse, developed by Stanford researchers and student-athletes, announced that it has partnered with Pop Warner, the country’s largest youth football organization for children five to 16 years old. CrashCourse aims to promote dialogue about head injuries and to encourage early reporting of concussion symptoms among youth football players nationwide.
