With the NFL becoming more and more in the spotlight for concussions in the game and it’s alumni players suffering from CTE, it makes us ask ourselves, should my child be playing football?
On this episode of Carpe Diem, host Rob Rowan, a TVDM alum from the School of Communication and Media at Montclair State University, takes a deeper look at America’s most popular sport – football – and the side effects from playing such a physically demanding sport.
Charles Thompson, defensive coordinator for Teaneck High School and former NCAA Division I Defensive lineman, and Stephen Thompson, a pediatric neurologist at the University of Maryland, discuss the effects concussions can have on the pediatric brain.
This episode was hosted by TVDM alum Rob Rowan and produced/directed by TVDM major, Craig Gorbunoff
