LOS ANGELES (AP) - A boys Catholic high school in Los Angeles will require all students to undergo baseline testing for concussions - whether they are athletes or not. The Los Angeles Times reports each of Loyola High's 1,270 students will undergo the 45-minute exam. The principal says non-athletes are being given the exam because the school has experienced increased numbers of students being diagnosed with concussions from outside activities such as skateboarding and snowboarding.
