ELLSWORTH, Kan. (AP) - A central Kansas judge is done volunteering at high school football games after suffering a concussion last month.

The Salina Journal (https://bit.ly/1FY6nMP ) reports that 73-year-old Ron Svaty got caught up in a play while working the chains during a Sept. 11 game between Beloit and Ellsworth. The Ellsworth County District Court judge says his head hit a concrete barrier on the track when he fell backward. He was unconscious for several minutes.

Svaty took some time off work to recover. He says he’s been trying to transition slowly from patient back to judge.

Svaty says in the years that he was a high school football player, he never suffered a concussion. That meant his recent injury was his first experience with the dizziness, nausea and memory loss they can cause.
