    I have written a book titled We Played The Game For Nothing (Amazon) which details my twenty-five years of playing football at the lower (lowest) levels imaginable:semi-pro and minor-league professional. I have a shunt in my brain from the hydrocephalus I earned from approximately 23 concussions. The word “dinger” sounds so benign, so innocent, so harmless, that I never worried when I got “dinged-up”, Do I also have CTE? That is possible, even probable, but it would take an autopsy to find out. I’ll take a rain check on that for a couple of years if no one minds. Oh. I also stopped coaching the sport. It would be too hypocritical if me to to
    try to get kids to play the game, the way I was taught to play it. And, at 72, I still feel the effects of the game I still love.
