It's all part of a new method that can test athletes for concussions and give parents peace of mind."If he would get a concussion, I would know how it would affect him later in life,"
Doctors are seeing more mild brain injuries amonth some high school athletes
Don Jones experienced four concussions when he played in the N.F.L."Back then the motto was get back out there, endure the pain and you're gonna get over it," Jones said.
But concussion awareness has changed dramatically since then. So much so that 16 year old William Adams is now being proactive. "At first I was a little nervous but when I realized I had to stand still, I was like, phew!" Adams said.
Doctors at Medical Athletics in University say the athletes should take the tests before the season.They say the athletes should return for another round of tets if they are injured to determine the extent of those injuries and the possibility of a concussion.
