A mother of a St. Clair County high school football player recently sued the school district, the football coaches and various administrators for negligently causing her son injuries. The lawsuit claims that the coaching staff’s win-at-all-cost mentality made them ignore her son’s complaints of headaches and other concussion related symptoms. The St. Clair County mother also claims that the coaches ridiculed those players who were already injured, creating a mentality in the team to hide injuries from the coaching staff. The mother claims that her son was forced to play despite an obvious head injury which caused him to collapse on the sidelines during a game with a ruptured blood vessel in his brain.
