Bishop’s University reaches settlement with brain-damaged football player

More education should be given to coaches, and every other adult who’s in a position of control, over kids playing sports.

This kid, who was in his third season with the Gaiters when he complained of nausea and dizziness during the game in September 2011, according to the lawsuit.

His coaches dismissed what he’d said, and told him to get back out there.  Shortly after returning to the field, he was hit again and suffered a major brain bleed. He was taken off the field as he began vomiting and lost consciousness.

Coaches, please listen to the athletes on the team.
