Earlier this month, Capuchino athletes participated in Team Up Day – a day to take a pledge to team up and speak up about concussions. The CDC estimates as many as 3.8 million concussions occur in the U.S. annually through sports and recreational activities, but only 5-10 percent are recognized and eventually diagnosed by coaches, parents, and athletic trainers. Surveys of high school athletes after the season find that 20 percent had concussion symptoms after a head impact at least once over the course of the last season, and more than 50 percent of the contact sport athletes report at least one event in their career. The SMUHSD has an excellent concussion protocol, but having students report suspected concussions in their teammates is also vital. Capuchino athletes recognize that in order to be the best team they can be, they have to look out for each other on and off the field, and this includes reporting concussions. Go Mustangs!


Cap at 49ers Rolling Out Banner.jpgThe San Francisco 49ers invited the Capuchino High School football team to be part of a pre-game celebration. The Mustangs were in charge of unrolling and displaying two gigantic flags at the game! These are the kinds of lifelong memories created in high school. Good job Mustangs!
