West Laurens Player will Suit up for Army Bowl

This year's U.S. Army All-American bowl will feature two big time playmakers from Central Georgia.

On Wednesday, soldiers marched into the West Laurens Auditorium to recognize Johnny O'Neal.

The linebacker has already racked up some impressive statistics this year for the Raiders.

His coach Stacy Nobles rattled them off for us.

"Johnny in our first five games he has 49 tackles, 36 solos, 27 assists and sixteen tackles for loss. Sixteen tackles for loss in five games is pretty impressive," Nobles bragged.

O'Neal will take his talents to the west coast this winter to play in the prestigious Army All-American Bowl. The group visited the campus today to make a big deal about O'Neal's accomplishment.

The senior who has already signed with Georgia says he had butterflies with all of the attention.

Concussions: The Hard-Hitting Facts

In many sports, the harder the hit, the louder the fans yell, but sometimes the outcome of a big blow isn't something to cheer about, like a concussion.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that one out of every ten athletes in a contact sport will get a concussion each season.

They also estimate that 3.8 million concussions happen each year in the United States with around 70% of them going undiagnosed.

When many people think of concussions, football automatically comes to mind, but women's soccer is the second leading sport for the brain injury.

When the brain moves around inside your head and hits the walls of your skull, that's when a concussion can happen.

It doesn't always take a big blow to do the trick either. Purdue University researchers found that a series of smaller hits can have the same result.

And most happen without the athlete ever losing consciousness.

Tavon Ross had a 60-yard touchdown run on the opening play of Friday's home opener versus West Laurens.  It would prove to be the only highlight.  Bleckley's defense would make several stops including a fourth and goal from the two as time expired.

The Raiders tied the game on a short touchdown run with 11:55 left in the fourth.  Ti'Jea Randall picked up BC's first first down of the game on a run to their 46.  Dre Pitts made a diving catch on the 28 with 3 seconds left.  A 45-yard field goal attempt was short.
