I began my football career at age 11 playing Pee Wee Pop Warner, knocked myself unconscious in a useless Bull In The Ring drill at age 13 and was hospitalized. After numerous "undiagnosed" concussions throughout my high school and college career, I developed hydrocephalus during my second year with the 49ers in 1981 and underwent emergency VP Shunt brain surgery. I have now survived 9 emergency shunt brain surgeries and multiple gran mal seizures. The link below is a stark look at the reality of long term consequences to not addressing TBIs properly.
