Playing sports like football, baseball and cheerleading is just part of daily life for many high school students. But with these sports comes great risks – particularly the risk of concussion. To keep these young players safe, the Miami Dolphins have teamed up with the University of Miami’s Countywide Care High School Program, getting baseline tests for concussions for 15,000 of Miami-Dade’s Public School athletes.
