Concussion Study – Coaches please send your video

I am looking for plays like the above.  My theory is that with a set of video of plays where a concussion occurred, we will be able to categorize how the concussion happened and together work on solutions to teaching proper technique and form. Practice or game film from youth through college levels will be useful in this study.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I would like to compile a playlist of video clips from either practice or game in which a concussion occurred.  This video will be shared with coaches and doctors so that we can work together to identify what we can do to help solve what has become a concern in football and has the media spotlight.  It threatens the future of the game.  The equipment manufacturers are doing a great job to create products that protect our players and even alert coaching and training staff through sensors and devices if a hit is a concern.

As coaches, we need to take a role in this too.  Please share your video clips via hudl or email.  grabkj@gmail.com is my email.  My Hudl account for this is under the name Coaches Edge Technologies.  You can do a one-way exchange to share your video.  Please pass this along to coaches you know.  The level you coach at is irrelevant to the study.  Film can be from youth through college.
