Heading, Tackling & Colliding!

On any given Saturday afternoon in America, thousands of kids are running around fields, gym floors and courts, chasing down a soccer ball, zinging a shot at the hockey net, or jockeying for possession of the pigskin.

Many of them will be tackled, bumped to the floor or smashed into a wall in their quest. Just how many of those seemingly innocent plays could result in brain injuries in the long run is anybody's guess. What is known is that physicians, coaches and parents have become hyper-vigilant to sports-related brain injuries after situations in which repeated blows to the head have been linked to the deaths and disabilities of high-profile professional athletes such as former New England Patriots linebacker Junior Seau.
