New Jersey Advance Media appears to be the only news outlet so far that has picked up on Concussion Inc.’s reports of the autopsy finding of exertional heat stroke in the August football practice death of Braeden Bradforth at Garden City Community College in Kansas. (Bradforth was from Neptune, New Jersey.)
The story, at https://www.nj.com/eagles/2018/12/heat-stroke-labelled-cause-of-nj-football-players-death-in-kansas-mom-plans-lawsuit.html, quotes the mother, Joanne Atkins-Ingram, stating her intention to sue Garden City and its head football coach, Jeff Sims.
Garden CIty spokesperson Ashley Salazar is quoted saying, “I can confirm there is an investigation pending, an internal review by the administration.”
Still unanswered is our query to Missouri Southern State University in Joplin, where Sims has been hired. So far the school is standing pat with a statement by Evan D. Jewsbury, the chief human resources officer, that questions pertaining to vetting the head football coach are “personnel-related information which is kept confidential.”
Alan D. Marble, Missouri Southern State’s president, did not acknowledge or respond to an email Friday.
Let’s start finding out what members of the Board of Governors of this public institution have to say.
