Having All the Facts

This is a great article and interview by CBS out of Pittsburgh.  Ryan Mayer sits down with  Merrill Hoge to discuss Youth Football and CTE.   

“I come from the views of a concerned parent. My kids play football and my kids are active in sports.” said Hoge when he stopped by the CBS Local studios on Friday. “And, of course, there is my history and what ended my career, which was improper care of head trauma which we have drastically changed since 1994. And what has happened is those things have gotten all blurred together, they don’t belong together. Protocols and treatments and treatments need to be over here, and this pattern, this thing we keep hearing about, CTE, should be over here. I was no different than anyone watching or listening to this, I saw all of the headlines. I wanted to know what it was. So, quite honestly, it sent me on a journey.”
