Drew Brees on Concussion Education

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP)- Drew Brees knows he has a dangerous job.

The record-setting quarterback of the New Orleans Saints is eager to make football safer at all levels. So he's teamed up with PACE - Protecting Athletes Through Concussion Education. The program provides free concussion testing for more than 3,300 middle and high schools and youth sports organizations. 

Brees says "any time you can educate young kids and their parents, especially in regards to concussions and raise awareness, is vital." 

Brees will headline a panel discussion on the topic Tuesday, joined by former U.S. soccer player Briana Scurry, retired NHL star Mike Richter and ex-New York Giants linebacker Carl Banks.
