not backing down from an ankeny lineman towering over him. >> i knew that last one was not good at ankeny, i could just see the look. sue wilson: i'm good sue, those were the words. "i'm good sue, i'm good to go." mark: sue wilson was the athletic trainer at indianola on the sidelines in 2009 for each of zac's concussions. wilson: back then they could return on the field 24 hours later, sometimes they were back sooner than an ankle sprain. mark: after high school, zac joined the national guard and suffered what was likely another concussion during a training accident at age 21. he suffered another concussion when a driver plowed into the back of his car. >> she was going 65 miles per hour, and he was at a dead stop. mark: in the fall of 2014, zac complained of severe headaches, problems with balance, his vision. >> memory loss, i'm having a hard time remembering things, i'm having some slurred speech. mark: it was a des moines doctor who first mentioned cte. chronic traumatic encephalopathy.
5:36 am
said, "what exactly is cte?" and he goes, it's like brain dementia mom. mark: several professional football players were among the first diagnosed with cte after they died, and the issue is the subject of the hollywood movie "concussion." >> i found a disease that no one has ever seen. mark will smith plays dr. : bennett omalu, who first identified cte in pro football player mike webster in 2002 and has since determined all autopsies of cte show the kind of brain damage previously seen in people with alzheimer's disease or dementia. myles: i was in denial, you know we're tough guys in this family. we'll get through this, you know. mark: of course mom went looking for help, research, answers, but she discovered what her son already understood. >> he just looked at me and said mom, there's no hope for me. there are no treatment programs. mark: zac moved back home last
5:37 am
>> it was very difficult to see a strong young man, very intelligent, really go downhill so quickly. mark: zac knew cte could only be diagnosed by direct tissue examination of the brain, after death. >> and he said to me mom, i want my brain donated to science. and i said nope, someday zac , i'll find the right help for us. don't give up for me. mark: just after midnight, on december 19th, zac drove to lake aquhabi and shot himself. he left a note in his car apologizing to the first responders and called the sheriff's dispatch to tell them where he was. myles: they heard the gunshot go off on the phone. >> we drove out there as fast as we could.
5:38 am
mark: zac took care not to damage his brain, preserving it for research. he left two notebooks in the family room, including a journal, documenting his daily over his body, his thoughts, his life. >> as it turns out, zach was way ahead of all of us. mark: mike hadden is a professor and just finished a sabbatical studying cte. mike hadden: through his journaling, we have so much material, and information from this. that it's almost as if, i mean, it's a first hand experience. and so we can tell that story. mark: zac writes in detail about concussion. protocol has changed. trainer sue wilson says these days any symptom, even a headache, means the player is done for the game and won't come back until doctors clear them. wilson: i feel a little responsible, because he was in our care. as an athletic trainer, our ultimate goal is to keep kids safe. that's why you go into athletic training.

expresses his desire to tell young athletes it's ok to tell coaches if you're dizzy, or have a headache. ok to take yourself off the field, wanting to tell everyone that all those concussions changed him. that helmets need to be safer. that more research needs to be done on cte. >> i think if we can make some of these things happen, it's our gift back to our son. and that's all we can give him right now. alyx: that was mark tauscheck reporting. zac's brain has been sent to dr. omalu in california. if he does discover cte, the detailed notes zac kept will be very valuable for his research. right now, case reports on cte largely feature 2nd hand accounts from friends and family. the easters are adamant they are not against the game of football. they are speaking out at the request of their son and to
5:40 am
done to prevent and detect concussions, including the development of rapid result blood tests for concussions that can be administered right on the sidelines and give instant results. concussions are a hot topic during this year's super bowl. childserve in johnston opened a concussion clinic last fall. the location is dedicated to young people showing signs of concussions. there they are monitored and tested to ensure that they don't return to activities and sports before their brains are symptom free. dr. fred klinbeil: kids were put back into play quickly, and now we are appreciating there are symptoms that last a longer period of time, they can be subtle. alyx: we'll show you some of the technology being used to help track the recovery of young athletes after concussions tonight at 10:00 after the super bowl. thanks for waking up with us this morning, central iowa. this is a live look at our
