Zach suffered a concussion during a freshman football game. Despite his injury, the coaches allowed Zach to remain in the game ….. Without being seen by any medical personnel.
At the conclusion of this Oak Grove game, the coaching staff and school administration failed to make sure that Zach received medical attention or ….was medically cleared to continue to participate in subsequent practices and games.
Zach’s parents ….were never notified!
The following week, the coaching staff allowed Zach to continue to practice and to play an entire game…Despite Being Given Orders from the Zach’s family Doctor prohibiting him from playing. Zach Frith suffered a brain injury as the result of multiple concussions sustained while playing football for his team during this two-week period… October 10, 2005 through October 25, 2005.
