Murray State University’s former football player James “Clay” Harrison filed a class action lawsuit against the Ohio Valley Conference and the National Collegiate Athletic Association on Thursday, September 1.
According to the lawsuit, Harrison was often knocked unconscious during his playing days at Murray State, which caused him to suffer from multiple head traumas, sudden blackouts, and intense headaches. The University is protected under the law, so it is not named as a defendant. According to Murray State’s news source, The News, 25 other cases have been filed since September 1. Although the cases could take years to resolve, they could permanently alter the face of the game.
