I don't know what is more absurd: this, or the moment Brent Musburger crowed that "that's a play NFL scouts will be looking at over and over folks" when Gholson made a tackle while nobody blocked him.
ESPN had nothing on this so it didn't happen!
last I checked the trainers are on the sidelines working, not watching the tv feed of a game. If they run out on the field and the player is moving and says he had the wind knocked out of him, how are they supposed to know otherwise? He passes the tests if he is showing any signs, and they put him back in.
BTW, you have never played football if you have not seen a kid blackout from getting

Scored 4 touchdowns...in a single game. Polk High!
No , no. You're right.
Clearly, based on visual evidence, he had his wind knocked out.
Completely serious. Doctors do not even use terms like "knocked out cold". They speak of losing consciousness and of level of severity of head injury. Basically you are justing talking out your ass.
I see you have a reading comprehension problem as well. Not surprised.
Have we ruled out the possibility that he was just really enjoying cuddling with Braxton?
devidee had a concussion recently...Luckily his doctor's are only allowing him to post on the internet, not play football.

Gholston took a brutal shot to the head and laid motionless for over a minute.
What do you think happened?
good point. Maybe he knew he wouldn't be able to tackle Braxton again, so he was taking in the moment.
Grade 3: Knocked Out - Blacked Out
Any loss of consciousness, no matter how brief, even if the athlete successfully completes all of the exams after he or she returns to consciousness, is a grade 3 concussions requiring medical attention:
Immobilize the athlete's head and call an ambulance.
If the athlete wakes up within one minute and does not have any neck pain, call an ambulance or ask a responsible adult to take the player to an emergency room.
If the athlete is unconscious longer than one minute, or complains of neck pain after returning from consciousness, assume that a spine injury exists. Call an ambulance. While waiting for it to arrive, keep the athlete's head from being moved. Expect the athlete to be prohibited from taking part in activity for a minimum of two weeks to one month.

I think he was knocked out. What I think is not the issue.
Gholston laid motionless for 73 seconds btw.
Or it was just a tale of star crossed lovers. One was a pass rusher, the other was a quarterback. Can love truly conquer all differences?
Do you sleep in your clown shoes or take them off before bed?
How long did he lay motionless after the trainers got to him?
Just because I am not a homer of a rival school and you have an obvious reading comprehension problem. I never stated he wasn't knocked out. Feel free to show where I said otherwise.
Agreed with the story about Braxton's big ass, maybe he was taking it for a spin and found it comfortable..
You're talking out of your ass. The only people who know what the severity was, were the medial professionals on the sidelines. I'm sure they would risk their license and a lawsuit to let a kid play that they did not, in their expert medical opinion, feel was ready. But obviously the message board troll Dr. devidee is all knowing.

That's never happened before. A player has never been put back into a game under questionable circumstances in the history of football.
Furthermore, medical professionals never make mistakes. Ever. It's impossible.
Nor are they influenced by coaches. That never, ever happens.
And message board trolls are all knowing.
Is there a reason Sparty is up in arms about this subject? Some of you seem awful defensive.
