My name is Jack Carroll. After graduating from Cherokee High School, I plan to attend the University of Georgia. While attending UGA I would like to study sports medicine or physical therapy. These two majors are similar in certain ways and keep me connected to sports. For my Senior Capstone Project I chose coaching football because I love sports and I love the opportunities that sports offer to people of all ages, races, genders, and sizes. Sports just have a way of bringing people from all different types of backgrounds together.
The topic I chose for my research is Sports Related Concussions. I chose this because they are a rising factor in the United States and have serious effects on people. I wanted to research and find out how serious concussions are becoming in our home country. I also wanted to see what symptoms people should look for as well as the short-term and long-term effects concussion could have on a human being. I learned many important thigs from my research. I learned the severity of this type of injury and what it can do to someone. Another thing I learned is that concussion are a big factor around the world but the extreme cases are found in the US
For my product I have elected to do a PowerPoint presentation on the practices and games, I attended with the 7th grade Cherokee Junior Warriors football team. This relates to my research topic because football is one of the main causes of concussions. I have played football for the majority of my life and I play defense. I have been fortunate enough to have never attained a concussion in all my years. Therefore, my job as their coach was to take the skills I have learned and relay those skills to them. I taught them the correct way to tackle to help keep them as safe as possible. There were not many obstacle I had to overcome because of how much I enjoy sports. The only real obstacle I had was trying to get the hang of being a coach rather than actually playing.
My topic and research relates to my future career because they both correlate to sports. My future career interests include possibly being a physical therapist, trainer, or a coach. Concussions connect with sports because one of the easiest ways to get one is through sports. They are also a part of sports medicine because they have to know how to deal with them and treat them. These careers interest me because I love what sports can do for a high, school, college, community, state, country, and even the world.
Senior Project was very enjoyable for me because I love the game of football and my research topic was very interesting. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to help judge all the senior projects.
