Did you play football? I played for 6 years. 4 HS, 2 college and finally quit after my second knee surgery. I’m 43 years old and feel the effects every day. I don’t know how many concussions I suffered, but at least 5. One was bad enough that I saw “double” for a few days. I kept playing after that hit, sitting out a few plays. I was an inside linebacker, not a position you show weakness while playing. Now I have 3 sons. I will not let any of them play before HS. And even when they reach HS I won’t push it. I also wrestled for 6 years. That’s the sport I will encourage. Kids aren’t wimps if they don’t play football.
