We can only hope they listen Coach...well said!
Also to amplify, learn how to tell someone about injury...IT is NOT tough, or brave or smart or anything but stupid to play hurt..Tell someone about pain, you'll not find the answer on the internet!! Address injuries now not later and get better. The true "real life" deal about injury is that all athletes will experience injury, the main thing is "how is it addressed"? You can deal and get better or you can wait and deal with the ramifications of your actions...which can include loss skill/ability or degradation of potential and even loss of ability to play the game in the future. Another thing that can be a benefit of addressing it is that you will get educated as to the injury and ways to fix it.
