We were in the field first and the first inning was fairly slow but we got through it without any runs given up. Then we got to the bottom half of the inning and Kedar was the lead-off batter. He got a single to centerfield, then I was up. I stepped in the box and it felt as my heart was gonna implode because I was nervous for my first at-bat. The pitcher threw the ball and right out of his hand I could tell that I could hit it. The ball came in like a jet, it seemed as if I could hear it zipping through the air.
I fell. This felt like I didn’t have a wrist. But I got back up really carefully and went up to the lounge to my dad and sister. Ah, Ah, Dad I think I broke my wrist. No you didn’t. It was swelling up, It hurt so bad I couldn’t even believe this was happening.
Being a typical 9 year old, I bawled my eyes out. When I moved my arm, it hurt even more. My mom came over to see what all the commotion was all about and I told her what had gone on. I also told her that whenever I moved my arm, it hurt and it felt very weird. She told me we would have to head to the hospital in Columbus to go get an X-Ray to see if it was broken. Thankfully, this was after my older brother’s band’s performance. He came over to us, and my mom told what was about to happen and what we were about to do. He wasn’t happy, to say the least. After about 5 minutes of arguing, my brother lost and my mom took the rest of us to Columbus. As we got into the car, she told me to keep my arm as still as I could, to which I did. We didn’t go to the hospital right away, however, we went to McDonald’s instead to try and make me feel better with some ice cream. It worked, and made me feel glad, even until I got into the hospital. I had never had a broken bone before up until that point in my life, so I didn’t know what to expect. We sat in the waiting room for about 5-10 minutes, until the nurse came into the room to tell us that the doctor was waiting. We got into
It was half-way through the second quarter in the semifinals, and the Sun Valley Vikings were up by 14. They were on our own 10-yard line, and they were handing it off to one of their biggest and best players, Jack Krump, up the middle. I was in at safety, and I ran up to tackle him at the five-yard line but he came trucking through I just bounced right off of him like a wall. I heard the crowd cheering, so I could tell he scored a touchdown. They kicked the field goal and it was, good. We then ran into formation to receive the kickoff.

I think most NFL players get injuries because experience traumatic brain injuries at rates. Most football players who play for the NFL are to risky to play for the NFL to get hart and something else. Some people think that it is safety to play football because do not appear to have much of the impact. Most of the players started had injuries in 2015. Someone can concussion is a brain injury that can cause someone or somebody to lose consciousness. the US Army Research Laboratory in Baltimore is looking at using the specially designed straps that would help the helmet to the body and similar to suspenders to help the football players with the injury or not to have injury.

It was dead silent as the ball sat in the air and as if time had stopped. It was December of 2015, I was 13, my team and I was playing for 3rd place in the Colt Classic Tournament. It was a night game at Barrington Station High School. We were playing the Barrington Colts, which was weird considering they are playing for 3rd in their own tournament that they were hosting, before the game, I was talking to some of my teammates Aaron Pattis, Stephen Harris, Bradley Jenkins, Ayden Anderson and I were talking before the game, going into that game we speculated that we had this game in the bag easily as a result of how well our team was playing. Little did we know, we had another problem coming.
Football players who are subjected to multiple repetitive blows to the brain can experience serious long-term damage that can affect every aspect of their lives. These blows have a cumulative effect on the brain that can lead to symptomatic concussions, asymptomatic post-concussive abnormalities, and altered neurological and cognitive functioning. Furthermore, participating in tackle football prior to the age of 12 places an individual at an even greater risk for degenerative damage. Kevin Turner, an Ex-New England Patriot and Philadelphia Eagle, took these risks. He began his career as a tackle football player at the age of 5 and ended his career after playing in the NFL for only eight years. In 2010, he was diagnosed with debilitating ALS
Week 3 of the college football season is in the books, and the history book was nearly rewritten Saturday when Ohio State narrowly escaped Northern Illinois with a 20-13 victory in Columbus, Ohio. The Buckeyes’ back-to-back title hopes are still alive, while other teams around the country saw their championship dreams dashed. Below is a recap of the most significant storylines from week 3 of the 2015 college football season.
It was the aftermath of the Friday night game that I’ve given any signs of an injury, and my family and close ones felt sorrow for me and the following Monday. Throughout my life, peers and elders engraved an image onto me being that sports held a bright future for me, and it will lead to the true path of greatness, and one single injury puts me an aggravating, melancholy rut. Viewing my teammates playing angered me since the injury forced me into a world of therapy for the rest of the season. All the promises I made for myself were undone, athletic scholarships, the path to greatness, and my only school pastime and passion flowed throughout my body and into a pipe dream.
Week 4 will bring us a Thursday Night Football game between AFC North rivals the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens have got off to a rocky start so far in 2015 with a 0-3 record, however, they’ll look to take advantage of a short-handed Steelers squad. Pittsburgh has had a solid start to their season, but they’ll be playing without longtime field general Ben Roethlisberger. This will be a pivotal game for Joe Flacco and the Ravens, so there should be some decent fantasy numbers coming from Baltimore.
College football players are naturally at risk of injury. The reasons why are due to the aggressiveness of the sport,lack of proper technique, technology,and equipment used by players.

Would you choose to slow down your brain processes to save your life? Marijuana slows the electrical signals sent to the brain by intercepting the cannabinoid signals, typically interjecting THC in between them slowing down the brain processes down. For people who have seizures or severe panic attacks, this will break down their thought processes enough to help them get through everyday life without incident. Unfortunately, this slowdown also makes it harder to notice small details in everyday life.
Injuries play a big role in an athlete's career and his or her overall health, although minor injuries are often nothing to worry about they can lead to something serious especially if the injury is repeatedly being aggravated. scrapes, cuts, bruises, and broken bones are all things to worry about. When a player is injured he or she is losing play time and money and why risk this when there is small but giant steps that can be taken to prevent injuries. But brain injuries are something much more serious even if the player says not to worry because something worse than losing playtime is losing your life.
