18 concussions for Glen Rose ISD students in 2011

7 May 2012 at 1:45:05 PM

With all the recent suicides in the NFL and the blame on concussions I decided to find out how many concussions Glen Rose ISD students had and i was surprised at the results! You would think a small town like Glen Rose would have almost none but that's what Open Records are for, so we can find out the facts!


All of these are for calendar year 2011 and from Glen Rose ISD via Open Records:

Football - 14 concussions

Basketball - 2 concussions

Softball - 2 concussions

All other sports - 0 concussions


With all of the students being injured maybe Glen Rose ISD ought to reconsider its sports agenda with full contact sports like football that cause students injuries like concussions well out of proportion to other sports, what do you think?

Is the enjoyment of watching children (teenagers are children too) play football at the local level more important than the long term health of Glen Rose ISD students?

Maybe your child is next...the next concussion could be your childs life-changing moment where they will never be the same.

come to think of it, maybe ditching some sports would refocus Glen Rose ISD so maybe they could hit the highest education mark instead of the 2nd highest since we know money is not what is stopping them.
