Does your son play youth football?
If so, as a parent you are probably concerned, and rightly so, about the possibility of him suffering a concussion.
It's not out of the realm of possibility. Football, whether you're playing in college or at the youth level, is obviously a hard-hitting game with inherent dangers.
Knowing that, the Lincoln Midget Football League in Lincoln is keeping a very close eye on its more than 1000 members, who are ages 9-14.
Every Sunday, the kids play tackle football on Lincoln's south side. And parents cheer on their boys, as they collide, hit and smash into each other.
And sometimes they suffer concussions, or have concussion-related symptoms.
But the league has a protocol in place for dealing with concussions. For starters, they have Red Cross workers stationed at every field.
They also have a medical tent, staffed by certified athletic trainers, who know exactly what to look for when a young person is hit in the head and is brought to the tent for observation.
Under state law, when a young athlete suffers a concussion, they have to be taken immediately out of the game, and can not return until professionals check him out and give their OK.
