(WKYC)  We are back to the tackles and the hits of high school football, but in today's game, we keep a close eye on the score and the concussions.

Eastlake North head coach George Burick said "I don't ever want any of our kids to get hurt, our team or their team."

Burick says he suffered dozens of concussions when he played football. He has a huge scar on the back of his head from brain surgery -- a tumor was removed, and doctors still don't know if it was related to all the hits.
