How many times has the classic jock image crossed in front of your eyes on the big screen? A tall dark and handsome varsity player of soccer, football, or baseball with the smart girl falling for him, then having to help him in class as she drools over the opportunity to get so close and make a good impression. Or the classic stereotype of cheerleaders as ditsy? What other athletic personas have always represented the antithesis of geekhood? Too many, and it's time to clear up this stereotype and bring out the real fact that those in athletics, specifically college (in this stage, the athletic process is more selective) have to be smart to succeed. Is there a correllation between athletic success and success in the classroom? How does this correlate between sports? What sports have the highest GPA's across the board? Is there a mentality associated with that sport, or all sports, that leads to academic drive and high academic performance? These questions are all facets to an answer that, hopefully, points to the idea that to truly succeed in athletics one must have the intelligence potential to succeed academically.
