Pro Treatment: Coronado High's Chatman back after painful lesson

CORONADO, Calif. (KGTV) - When Coronado High School football player Trent Chatman broke his neck as a freshman, he thought his career might be over before it started.

Chatman was lucky and was able to walk away from the injury. After two years of rehab -- and convincing his parents -- he's back on the field at Coronado High School.

Chatman said he injured himself trying to make a tackle when he led with his helmet.

"I shouldn't have done that," he acknowledged.

It's an important lesson for all young football players, and it's a mistake Chatman, who is playing running back and free safety this season, said he won't make again.

The Islanders are getting the 10News Pro Treatment ahead of their game against Castle Park High on Friday night.
