When I was in high school our first baseman got hit hard having to come across the bag to catch a throw, and his head just bounced on the ground when he hit. He said he was fine.
The next inning our pitcher got in trouble so we brought the first baseman in to pitch and he struck out the side
While were batting in the top of the inning he comes and ask me who's pitching, and had to tell him he was and that he was doing pretty good.
We ended up losing and it was a playoff game and he was a senior, and on our way home he asked me two different times I we had won or lost. He cried both times after I told him we lost, it was pretty sad.
and that sounds like my third and final concussion.
I got blindsided on kickoff coverage as I was going to try and break the wedge near the end of our next to last game of the year. Teammates said I claimed I was fine even though I didn't get up for a few seconds.
later at dinner, they said I went through the cafeteria line, picked up my food, set it down at our table and wandered off. 10 minutes later I came back with a second tray with the exact same stuff and got pissed that somebody (as in me) was sitting in my chair and started bitching at them for not saving me spot and for running to dinner and leaving me behind.
Two of them had to drag me to the nurse to get checked out b/c I didn't believe that I had gotten dinner twice. (this was at a prep school if any are wondering why we were having dinner at the school cafeteria)
I'm really lucky I had friends like that b/c who knows how badly I could have messed myself up if I had tried to go to practice that week.
This happened right around when Aikman was making news for all his concussions which helped me decide it wasn't worth the risk to play my senior season since that was my 3rd in 2 years of playing and my 2nd that season.
