Hoosier high school football players are getting more protection.

The state House advanced a concussion-awareness program for coaches.

Players who suffer the malady must wait 24 hours before returning to the gridiron.

Senator Travis Holdman sponsors the bill and said, quote, “Concussions are such an insidious injury the symptoms may not show up for years later.”
