A former junior varsity football player at Vista Murrieta High School is suing the school district after he was injured during a practice for which he wasn't suited up with protective gear, CBS Los Angeles reports.
Casey Aspinall says he was injured during an off-season football physical education class in 2010 when he took a hit to the head and received a grade-four concussion, according to a new CBS2 report.
“I remember the football coming towards me and everything went black,” he told the news agency. “Blood was everywhere. It was dripping down my face, on my chest, on my stomach, to my pants, my hands. It was messy.”
The teen said he is still suffering the effects from that fateful practice. He and his mom are suing Murrieta Valley Unified School District for negligence.
