The Provo School District and Timpview High School are investigating whether proper concussion protocol was followed during Friday's Class 4A state title game when Thunderbird quarterback Britain Covey suffered a head injury, according to a news release.
Following the game, which Timpview won 33-28 over East on a touchdown run from Covey in the final minutes, the quarterback told reporters, "I honestly think I have a concussion right now. I don't even remember who scored on that last drive. I think it was me."
According to the release, the school district had no verification that Covey suffered a concussion, other than reports from after the game. However, Covey said Tuesday that doctors diagnosed him with a mild concussion after the game, which he suffered on a big hit near the end of the third quarter.
