A Sports Celebrity Booking Agency

New York Giants football legend and NFL Hall of Famer Harry Carson visited Colts Neck High School in New Jersey on Thursday to talk about concussion awareness.

The nine-time Pro Bowler is a spokesperson for Meridian Neuroscience, and is a frequent Guest Speaker on the topic of concussions. Carson told the students, “The thing I have most of my expertise in is concussions,” adding, “I received some, but I was very good at giving them out.”

As a linebacker Carson was a feared defensive player, and he estimated that he suffered 20 concussions during his school and professional playing years. After receiving a diagnosis of post-concussion syndrome, the 58-year-old became an outspoken advocate for concussion awareness.

Audience members appreciated Carson’s time, noting, “It’s good to know from someone who’s experienced this type of injury,” and “I think what I learned from this experience, always take it seriously. And you don’t have to rush back into a game.”
