"Shockbox" for young athletes detects concussions on the field

Posted: Updated:

Concussions on the football field and the long term damage they can cause have been in the news a lot lately.

In NFL and college games, there are trainers to evaluate players after they've been hit on the field.

What if you have a child playing in Pop Warner or in an elementary school league?

There's a new sensor that can help you keep track of how hard your child has been hit.

Video: FOX 10's Kristin Anderson has the details.
