Adrian Arrington

Adrian Arrington, a former safety at Eastern Illinois University, sits with his daughter, Andria, as he talks about enduring five concussions while playing football, some so severe he has says he couldn’t recognize his parents afterward, during an interview with The Associated Press at his home Tuesday, July 29, 2014, in Bloomington Ill. Subsequent headaches, memory loss, seizures and depression made it difficult to work or even care for his children. On Tuesday, the NCAA agreed to settle a class-action head-injury lawsuit by creating a $70 million fund to diagnose thousands of current and former college athletes to determine if they suffered brain trauma playing football, hockey, soccer and other contact sports. Arrington was the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit. (AP Photo/Seth Perlman)
