After Leigh Steinberg watched his quarterback Troy Aikman deal with a concussion during the playoffs in 1994, the then-sports agent knew he had to do something about it.
Ever since, Steinberg, a Newport Beach resident, has been drumming up safety awareness about concussions. His quest started slow, but it is now peaking he said because he’s getting the NFL in the act. Steinberg is helping conduct the Sports Concussion Institute’s National Concussion Summit today at the Marriott Hotel in Marina del Rey.
The clinic is in its second year and will have an NFL presence for the first time, with Hall of Famers Warren Moon and Rod Woodson scheduled to speak.
