Each year, hundreds of athletes across the state sustain head injuries, including concussions.
For that reason, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker signed youth concussion legislation into law April 2 at Lambeau Field. Support for the bill came from physicians, student-athletes and other organizations, including the Green Bay Packers.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has exhibited an unwavering commitment to the adoption of concussion legislation nationwide, starting with the Washington state concussion law named after middle school football player Zackery Lystedt, who was injured during a game in 2006.
