Dorito Gets Injured
Dorito suffered a concussion in his first home game with the Jr. Outlaws JV team. I didn't even realize it at the time. He gave a normal body check put another player against the boards, but neither one fell down. Later, we learned the other boy put up his glove which forced Dorito's head back (like whiplash?). As the second period was played, Dorito said he was developing a burning headache. He didn’t play at all in the third period because he was getting dizzy. The trainer recommended we go to the ER, and the doctor there verified a Level 2 concussion (at 2 a.m.) so we are supposed to watch him carefully the first week for signs of vomitting or worse pain.
