Goodell tells kids: Play the game right
Former NFL quarterback Warren Moon told them he got his first concussion at age 11 in a youth football league. He said injuries are part of sports, but can be diminished by having good equipment and playing the game properly.
The Hall of Fame quarterback acknowledged that some of the parents sitting in folding chairs around the perimeter of the field had concerns about their children playing the sport.
“I know there are a lot of nervous parents out there,” he said.
The players got their helmets and started drills as part of a clinic teaching various aspects of the game. Janice Wright of Akron sat in a folding chair and made a video of her grandson, 11-year-old Andre Hilton, playing catch in his new, gray helmet and blue-and-white jersey with No. 42.
Wright has read about NFL players suffering long-term damage from concussions and warned her son to play safely.
“He always says, `I hit `em with my head,’” Wright said. “I say, `You don’t do that anymore.’ I told him they’re trying to change that.
“I’m glad he’s here (at the clinic). He thinks you’ve got to knock `em down, hit `em hard. I was telling him about the people that had concussions.”
