I’m not going to be needing it at the end of my life, No. 1, and hopefully, what can be learned is, can doctors and scientists and neuroscientists look at the brain of someone like me, who has been playing soccer a majority of my life, and really dissect the brain and say, ‘Here’s where we see it beginning?’ Could we then use that information to help say that before the age of 14, it’s not a good idea to head the ball?’
Well said, Brandi. Hopefully Ms. Chastain outlives us all, but as the father of athletes, thank you for making this sacrifice.
