Texas State University student Natasha Helmick used to play soccer for the school’s team, the Bobcats. Not only was she forced to quit soccer but also she now sometimes has trouble off the field performing mental tasks. That’s because she suffered five concussions in five years.
By Enrique Rangel SAN ANTONIO – Four concussions have already been reported in the Alamo City after two weeks of high school football practice. Those students, like any other high school student athlete in Texas who suffers a head injury, will get the attention they need and will be closely watched to make sure their injuries are not serious, said Dr. Paul Saenz, a sports physician. “Head injuries are finally getting the attention they deserve,” Saenz said at the legislative summit of the National Conference of State Legislatures in San Antonio last week.
AUSTIN - It's tough to stand out as a rookie, especially in the Texas House of Representatives. In the just concluded session it was even harder to shine because there were 38 of them, nearly twice a session's average, and the largest rookie class since 1973.
But Rep. Four Price, R-Amarillo, said he did his best to be an effective legislator. And his colleagues, particularly from West Texas, gave him high marks for it.
A bill to protect athletes from concussion, authored by Representative Four Price of Amarillo, is headed to the governor's desk. "Natasha's Law" was passed by the Senate Tuesday. Price says he looks forward to seeing Governor Rick Perry sign Natasha's Law. The law would add precautions to help prevent further injury to both pro and student athletes who are suffering concussions.
When the next academic year starts in August, all public schools in Texas will have to pay more attention to head injuries suffered in sports-related activities. The Texas Senate on Tuesday passed a bill by Rep. Four Price which will make this a requirement.
"I am thrilled because this is a good bill for sports and protects students," said Price, R-Amarillo, after the Senate unanimously approved his bill.
