At our game today, one of our players was very slow to get up after a play. He complained of dizziness and a head ache, and he developed a sudden and significant sensitivity to light. As scary as this was, we were extremely fortunate to have such a thing happen while playing an away game in Oxnard. This is because the PYFL Oxnard Chapter has contracted emergency medical services for all of their home games from a company called Medics on the Ball. There was a licensed EMT on site at our game who was able to assess our boy, offer assistance, and provide appropriate medical recommendations to us and to the boy’s parents. I cannot begin to explain to you what a comfort it was to have him there, and how grateful we were to the Oxnard Chapter President for arranging such a service.
