This study sheds light on the severity concussions have on football players. "Dr. Ann McKee, a neuropathologist, has examined the brains of 202 deceased football players... Of the 202 players, 111 of them played in the N.F.L. — and 110 of those were found to have chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or C.T.E., the degenerative disease believed to be caused by repeated blows to the head."
Help find a technology that will reduce the number of concussions and improve the lives of football players!
Ryan Mundy played in the NFL for 8 years. At the time, his job was to make hard hits. Now, as a 32-year-old, he is looking back and reflecting on the danger that comes with the game of football. In this article, he shares about C.T.E which is "a progressive degenerative disease which afflicts the brain of people who have suffered repeated concussions and/ or repetitive head trauma." With new technology, the game of football can be saved and so can players' lives! https://medium.com/@RyanGMundy/c-t-me-4c5ab978d82d
