A brutal collision left Marty White dazed and disoriented after he clutched a football to his chest and accelerated through a seam in the defense under the bright lights on a random Friday night in late 1982.

.

White, then a high school junior in Buffalo, N.Y., slowly picked himself up off the field and unwittingly shuffled to the opposing sideline with his mind in a fog. His teams coaching staff retrieved him, returned him to the correct side of the field and two plays later he was inserted back into the action.

.

White played the remainder of the game, he was later told, though even then he couldnt recollect much of it. On the bus ride home, he curiously looked down and noticed the dirt and grass stains that camouflaged his jersey.

.

I looked down at my uniform and asked my friend, How did we get so dirty on the way to the game?  recalls White, now the head football coach at Indio High School. I didnt realize that we had already played.

.

White later played college football at Penn and estimates he suffered four or five noticeable concussions during his playing career. In some cases he blacked out. Other times, he slurred his speech and experienced memory loss immediately following the violent encounter that caused the trauma.

.

Now as a coach, during a time when concussion research and awareness is surging throughout the country, White sees the contrast in how such trauma is managed from when he played the violent game.

.

Night and day.

.

As White has witnessed, concussion management and discussion are slowly changing in the Coachella Valley, despite being secluded in a corner of a state that lags behind a nationwide emphasis in new concussion-related education and protocol.

.

California is one of the few states that does not require high schools to have a full-time certified athletic trainer on campus to monitor concussions and other forms of trauma. As a result, just 19 percent of the roughly 1,500 schools in the state have a certified individual monitoring concussions and ensuring proper procedure is carried out.

.

A state that is very behind in their understanding and awareness of especially concussion management, but Id say sports medicine in general, said Patty Curtiss, a certified trainer and concussion consultant who works with Eisenhower Medical Center and College of the Desert.

.

In some instances, having a certified trainer on campus is the difference between a concussion that is misdiagnosed and mistreated versus one that leads to full rehabilitation.
