A new reports says an average of six student athletes at every high school in Michigan suffered a concussion during the last school year.

 

It was the first time the Michigan High School Athletic Association ordered every high school to report concussions in it's athletes.

 

Concussions can happen from a head hitting the ground, being whipped around – some of these sports do some pretty violent things to the body and they do it pretty fast. And a concussion does not always have to happen as a result of an impact, it can be that the body gets whipped around and the brain is suspended inside.”

 

That's spokesperson John Johnson who adds over 4,400 concussions were reported last year.
