1. Roleswelle, N.C.
Isaiah Langston, a football player at Rolesville, died in 2014 from a stroke that resulted from a head injury allegedly incurred during football practice. After an ongoing lawsuit against Rolesville High in Rolesville, N.C., it has been ruled that the Langston family will receive $45,000 in a settlement agreement. The school system’s insurer agreed to pay the $45,000 to dismiss the lawsuit and avoid the costs of a full trial. The parents originally accused the school for not following concussion protocol when their son complained of having a headache.
