Sulphur Springs Head Athletic Trainer Tammy Carrell discussed concussions with the School Board Monday night. Ms. Carrell wanted to make the board aware that when they suspect an athlete has had a concussion, only a medical doctor can clear the athlete to return to play. She said it’s state law and would be enforced here. Ms. Carrell said concussion here and everywhere are up due to increased awareness of signs and symptoms.
