Society has a need to categorize people, not just athletes, into groups to help simplify the social environmentby reducing and facilitating they comprehension of information (Allport, 1954). Sources: Simons et al., 2007 & Parsons, 2013 Most studies show a cognitive gap (math, writing & reading) exists between non-athletes and athletes who are in revenue producing sports. This gap widens throughout the college years and is consistent across all NCAA Divisions and holds true regardless of the school's selectiveness.
