Oregon’s Max's Law—named for Max Conradt, a high school football player who took blows to the head in back-to‐back games and suffered permanent brain injury—was passed in July 2009. The law requires:
- All coaches receive training once every twelve months.
- Students who exhibit signs, symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion following an observed or suspected blow to the head or body must be kept from participating in any athletic events or training on the day of their injury.
- Students who receive a blow to the head or body or exhibit symptoms of a concussion are prohibited from participating in athletic events or training until they have a medical release from a health care professional and don’t exhibit signs, symptoms, or behaviors consistent with a concussion.
