The Second Impact MIssion Statement: Ray’s mission is to tell his story of the mistakes he made not properly addressing  a concussion and the lifelong consequences he suffered as a result.  Rays goal is to raise awareness, offer support, and encourage young people to be honest with care givers instead of playing through a head injury.  Ray hopes, through his talks, that student athletes will understand the importance of addressing a concussion correctly and promptly.  He encourages student athletes to be honest with symptoms and advocates following school or sport program protocols and doctor’s orders to ensure a safe return to play.
