In the end, it played a role in my choosing not to keep playing football in HS. It also seems like, looking back, exactly the kind of drill the may have left kids with concussions that we never knew about.
If this is the drill that pushed you out of football, it's a damn good thing your vagina never saw the field in an actual tough physical game.
