Quarterback quitting after too many concussions
HOUSTON, Texas (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A University of Houston quarterback says he is quitting his football career after suffering too many concussions.
"I wouldn't recommend it to anybody starting as young as I did. That is what I think kinda caused some problems," said David Piland.
Piland suffered his first concussion at age 12, but admits his most recent concussion on September 7th was different.
He says while at the hospital he couldn't remember the game, was getting dizzy just from walking and was having trouble seeing.
Piland, who is set to graduate in December, is seventh in school history for passing yardage, touchdown passes and completions.
