Things are different for high school football coaches in the Rio Grande Valley.
The University Interscholastic League, the governing body for high school sports in Texas, began mandating in 2011 that all coaches take a two-hour training course on how to spot concussion symptoms. Any player exhibiting dilated pupils, light sensitivity or dizzyness after a tough hit must leave the game.
Any player guilty of targeting another player's head is automatically kicked out. Players who suffer a concussion can't return to practice until a doctor clears it. Even then, they must ease into full practice and contact.
