When we think of football, the first thing that comes to mine is hard hits. Players doing everything in their will to rip their opponents heads off. With the death of former NFL Star Junior Seau, many are asking the question, “Did Football Kill Junior Seau?” Being a former college football player, I’m here to tell you YES, football did kill Junior Seau.
Here’s Why Football Killed Junior Seau:
Concussions play a huge role in the sport of football. I can recall having three concussions during my collegiate career, none of which I reported to the training staff. Throughout my entire football career of football and can recall about six. Junior Seau played football for more than 25 years, therefore it’s easy to believe his concussion count was double or triple what mine was. It’s also easy to believe that many of Seau’s concussions were not reported to the training staff. Players who love the sport of football never want to come off the field or miss time because of injury. Reporting your injuries to trainers is like snitching on yourself! If Seau did amass many concussions and never reported them, this could have had a negative effect on his brain functionality, which could have played a part in his suicide.
