to help prevent ACL injuires.
A concussion is an injury that changes how the cells in the brain normally work. A concussion is caused
by a blow to the head or body that causes the brain to move rapidly insude the skull. Even a "ding", "getting your bell rung",
or what seems to a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious. Concussions can also result from a fall or from players
colliding with each other or with obstacles, such as a goalpost, even if they do not directly hit their head.
