Last night, he accumulated 7 points in the first quarter of play. Early in the second quarter, my son took on a defender and took a shot to the jaw. He played up the injury to try to get a flagrant foul called.
The ref was right there, saw the tough play and called a foul immediately. After he called the foul, the ref sent a player to the bench.
Much to my son's surprise, the player the ref sent to the bench for the remainder of the game was him. The ref feared that my son suffered a concussion.
The Main Point
Players, if you do suffered a head injury and you feel disoriented get checked. Concussions are a serious matter.
Players, if you play up a head injury to draw a foul or impress the fans, the ref or your coach may pull you off the field or court until a doctor clears you. There's a no tolerance policy concerning concussions.
My son did not have a concussion. I think my son learned a valuable lesson during this game.
