We are just entering one of our very last home games, the last time we'd be able to play on our own field this season. We start warming up for our game against the opposing team while Dean Kidder puts the ball at the starting point.
We all got in our positions and got ready to start the game. Dean Kidder blew the whistle for the kick off and we began playing.
Our defense stole the ball out of the defensive zone and started bringing it up, trying to find someone to make the pass to since I was only a Midfielder.
I didnt have any feet to pass it to so I continued to run down the line with the ball. I seen one of my team mates going for a run down the middle so I decided to kick it. A defender stepped out and kicked the ball at my head while to was going approximately 90 mph and hit my head. Everything went black.
I held my head in pain, standing still, not knowing where I was. Ears ringing, head throbbing. I started playing again but could not run straight, the ref stopped me and told me I needed to sit or go with my parents.
I went to the nurse and then was told that I had a concussion. I went to the ER that night with my father and was diagnosed with a concussion that I needed to stay out for 5 days.
