First on "CBS This Morning," two former soccer stars share how they're recruiting others to protect future athletes. Michelle Akers scored both goals in Team USA's first championship in 1991. And in 1999, Brandi Chastain helped lead the team to another title. Dr. Jon LaPook spoke to them about why they're trying to raise awareness of debilitating brain disease known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE.
