Teen Credits Concussion With Giving Him His Musical Talents

 Lachlan Connors is a junior at the private high school and loves music more than anything.

“Music is the thing that gets me up in the morning,” the Englewood resident told CBS4.

When he was younger it was clear Connors didn’t have of a knack for music. At all.

“He really had no talent,” his mother Elsie Hamilton said. “I would say ‘Can’t you hear what’s next?’ with something like ‘Mary Had a Little Lamb’ or ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star’ and he’d say ‘No.’ “
Connors’ first passion was sports.

“I thought I might become a professional lacrosse player,” he said.

But things changed when Connors was in sixth grade and he sustained a concussion while playing on his recreational lacrosse team.

“I fell backwards and hit the back of my head on the ground,” he told CBS4. “I remember getting up and feeling really dazed. I didn’t really understand something bad had happened.”

Connors began exhibiting some concerning behaviors, but his parents took him to a doctor and they gave him the okay to return to the field.
