Athletes are Choosing Their Health

Watch this video on YouTube.

 

Steven Threet isn’t the first athlete to choose to stop playing the sport he loves. Steve Young and Troy Aikman come to mind when I think about football players who chose to stop playing football after suffering multiple concussions. The video gives a brief glimpse on the process it took for Steven to stop playing football after a successful college career that may have gone on.

When I see cases like this, I hope that the athlete involved is doing everything possible to hopefully reduce the sub-concussive forces during practice and games. Logic would lead you to believe that a larger and stronger neck would possibly help these situations.
