As high school football season kicks off, there’s a heightened focus on player safety in light of the untimely death of Maryland offensive lineman Jordan McNair, who died from heatstroke earlier this summer.
What are the signs?
- A throbbing headache
- Lack of sweating despite the heat
- Muscle cramps
- Rapid heartbeat
If you, or anyone you know, if experiencing these symptoms, you should first get out of the heat, cool-down and drink water. If the symptoms persist or you have a fever of 104 degrees or higher, you should get medical help immediately.
