TODAY IS CONCUSSION AWARENESS DAY
Is it just a bump on the head right? It’s all part of the game and it’s not like its bleeding! You feel fine! And weren’t you wearing a helmet? Or it was just grassed right? How hard could the ground really be?
How much damage can a soccer ball really do? It’s round and full of air! The truth of the matter is that a concussion can be a serious issue, and they tend to happen during sports more than any other time. Concussion Awareness Day reminds you to learn the signs, and take them seriously. Concussions are serious business!
