Teenage Concussion Awareness Advocates to be Honored at Colts Game

— Caroline Temple, a seventh grade volleyball player at Our Lady of Mount Carmel, suffered a concussion after a support pole fell and hit her head. After she was cleared to play six weeks later, a volleyball to the head caused her side effects to skyrocket - headaches, sensitivity to light and sound, and trouble focusing in school. Under Dr. Daniel Kraft's guidance, Caroline spent the next 10 months recovering and only attended school half days. When she did return to the court, Caroline sported a yellow helmet to help protect her brain from further injury.
