Jim Proebstle, author of "Unintended Impact: One Athlete's Journey From Concussions in Amateur Football to CTE Dementia," tells the story of his older brother, Dick, who didn't get the fame and fortune of some NFL Football players, but did get the repercussions as he received countless head injuries while playing high school and college football.

Life is all about choices!
