“I want to really thank Robert Shelton and the Fiesta Bowl organization,” Guskiewicz said. “They, unlike anybody else in this business, I can tell you, care a lot about this particular topic. They have put forth funding to ensure that this topic’s being researched and that the information is being disseminated in a meaningful way to really help coaches, players, parents at the youth level.”
This was the second consecutive year that the Fiesta Bowl has sponsored a concussions-related seminar as part of its annual spring event. A video of the first seminar is available at fiestabowl.org.
