The school year progresses and Kenny keeps us up to speed on the highlights, which mostly involve Byron getting into trouble. He beats up Larry Dunn, he sets things on fire, he kills a bird with a cookie (no, we 're not kidding) and then gets really upset about it. At this point, we 're all a little confused about what exactly is going on with this kid, and Momma and Dad are pretty frustrated. Then Byron gets his hair chemically straightened without permission (in the Watson family this is a big no no, so dad shaves Byron 's head ball, and that is the last straw.

This article talks about how coaches could better recognize concussions as they went through an education program that helped them recognize the symptoms of a concussion. Some sports teams may not have certified athletic trainers or doctors on the sideline to take care of a concussion and that leaves the coach to be the first person to try and recognize a concussion. Also, to help coaches recognize concussions, the Center for Disease Control started a program called Heads Up!, which was used at the youth and high school levels. The big issue with the concussion knowledge is that some of these coaches today have misconceptions of concussions because of the magazines and newspapers they read instead of going through coaching education programs to properly get their information on a concussion. For this study, they had to get people who were enrolled in classes related to coaching education majors and minors.

The pressure put on kids to perform from coaches, parents, and peers is a lot, and can lead an athlete to put a sports team over their own health. According to Dr. Aaron Karlin, the Director of the Concussion Management Program at Ochsner, “A concussion won’t appear on a CAT scan or MRI, as it is a functional injury to the brain”(Ochsner). Due to the fact that these injuries do not show up on scans, it is completely up to the injured athlete and anyone surrounding them to report any symptoms after a big hit. Although this may sound simple, some athletes ignore symptoms to stay in the game or to return quicker after already being taken out. In a report from the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council it stated this,” There is still a culture among athletes that resists both the self- reporting of concussions and compliance with appropriate concussion management plans” (Hoffman).

When I was fifteen years old and in middle school, there was this one kid in my grade that was Muslim. He sat by himself minding his own business but everyday a group of kids in the grade above us would come and make fun of this young boy, each day it would be the same thing, they would call him names and tell him to go back to where he came from. All because he was a Muslim boy in Australia. One day he fought back to the bullies and threw a punch at the main culprit, of course he got beat up and all the boys had to go to the office and talk to the principle but what was astonishing was that the Muslim boy got suspended for three days and all the bullies did not get into trouble. From that day, I saw how the world target Muslims and how there is this witch hunt for them.
