(WUSA9) -- More attention is being paid to the long-term effects of concussions and preventing them from happening in youth sports, particularly when it applies to the game of football. Very few people realize, however, there is an alarming number of concussions suffered in girls soccer.

A recent study published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine ranked high school girls soccer as the second most concussion prone sport behind football.
