There is also the factor that in big sports town like the ones researched in Texas, teachers are encouraged to be more lenient on the star athletes.

Sports Participation Character Development Opening Research Paper

… In the article, "Justplay: A revolutionary approach to youth sport administration and sportsmanship," Elaine Raakman (2006) asserts that although the potential exists for youth sport participation to build positive character traits, when society diverts its emphasis away from sportsmanship to focusing more on outcome, children as well as communities may experience negative benefits. Raakman relates the following:

The original goals of the first community-organized youth sport programs (Pop Warner Football in 1929 and Little League in 1938) revolved around the development of good citizenship and good sportsmanship. The founders of these programs were actually reiterating principles made famous by the father of the modern Olympics, Baron de Coubertin, who asserted that participation in sport could help develop engaged, balanced citizens. (Raakman, 2006, ¶ 3)

Imagine if you will, dear reader, that a strappingly built British fellow were to appear before your school board. He has a brilliant, if rather odd, proposal to make.

This handsome Brit suggests that these games will build character in your high school students by encouraging them to hone their competitive urges, form…. [read more]

Sports and Anti-Trust Term Paper

… The Maurice Clarett Case

Regarding the NFL's position, they do not believe they are unreasonably restraining trade by insisting on monitoring and controlling the entry of players into the game.

According to NFL's executive vice president Jeff Pash, "We will move promptly for a stay in the Court of Appeals.

We are a long way from a final decision." (, online) Pash…. [read more]

Football and Society A- Sports Term Paper

… e. The observer is looking and recording behaviors, without the notice of the subjects under observation (techniques, 2004). This type of direct field observation has kept me aloof from becoming an active participant of the game itself and has helped be to record unbiased observations. Further, this form of direct observation has suggested a more detached and separate perspective of the subjects in concern. Moreover, this form of direct observation is more focused, precised and subject-oriented than a participant observation, in which I have to become the part of the match to obtain some physical data. I am simply observing the football match and the behavior of the players than trying to become immersed in the game. This method is less time consuming and less…. [read more]

Sports, Race and Social Issues Book Report

… It is clear that football is of great significance to the community of Odessa, it brings out in them both the good and the bad. It unites them, but at the same time in a broader sense it separates them. Football appears to make time stand still for them; it allows them to live in the past while ignoring the cultural modernizations that other parts of America have undergone. It appears that through football the community members of Odessa have been able to create a form of oppressive hierarchy that mainly benefits the established powerful members of the football community. The powerful and infamous in this community are the most privileged and revered and also the most rewarded, while the poor and the unknowns are…. [read more]

… Rudy from Rudy (1993): Character profile

Back in the mid-1970s when Daniel 'Rudy' Ruettiger was in college, Notre Dame University was the unquestioned powerhouse of college football. But if Notre Dame was a Goliath, Rudy was a 'David,' a small, unremarkable high school player of only moderate talent, small in size, and lacking in either the academic preparation or the raw athletic talent necessary to gain entry to the coveted ranks of such an elite institution. Rudy did not even have the support of his family -- his father was hostile to the idea of his boy even going to college, much less a private college that tended to attract graduates of preparatory schools because of its high cost. Rudy was able to uphold within…. [read more]

World Cup: Unifying the Globe

In almost every country of the world, the way that the national pastime is played is seen as a guide to national character and identity. For nearly 100 years, soccer has united a divided world. Soccer was invented in England in the mid-19th century, and rapidly spread to Europe and South America. Soccer's world cup draws an audience larger than that for the Olympics. According to Franklin Foer's How Soccer Explains the World (2004), American hostility toward soccer is attributed to globalization, feared by many because it forces us to accept other people's cultures (Szymanski and Zimbalist, 2005

In response to the shocking series of highly publicized multiple victim shootings at high schools and colleges across the country in recent years the nation's schools have begun to resemble armed fortresses trying to keep the bad guys out.

Kite Runner: Character Analysis Essay

… Therefore, Kite Fighting was the key. To get to the point, Amir is then the Kite Fighter, and so this makes Hassan the Kite Runner. If Amir is the narrator, the main character and the protagonist of the story, why then is the title of the book named after the character of Hassan? This is because Hassan essentially plays a big part in Amir's life, and the entire book is about Amir's feelings of remorse and guilt which revolved around how he treated Hassan, and how he allowed Hassan to be raped. This may also come into connection with Amir's change of character seen in the end of the novel where he becomes the Kite Runner. This is when Amir is seen running after a…. [read more]

Community Prevention Drug Use Among High School Thesis

… Community Prevention

Drug use among high school athletes is often a problem in relation to the pressure to perform while also coping with other factors such as peer group, home life, and school work. The temptation to use steroids or other performance-enhancing drugs therefore increases concomitantly with pressures from the social and private lives of the athletes. In order to help curb this problem, I would therefore propose a community prevention program that focuses on preventing drug use in high school athletes in Boise High School, Idaho.

Ethics Honesty Term Paper

… Honesty in Athletics and the Classroom

Definition of the Quality

Honesty is the bedrock of my value system. Honesty is the first and most important value of any moral system. But what is honesty? There are many cliches attached to the ideal of honesty, like 'honest as the day is long' and 'Honest Abe,' but what does the word mean? As a starting point, the modern Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of "honesty" is "fairness and straightforwardness of conduct, coupled with "adherence to the facts."

High School Sports Impact on Student Academics Thesis

… But the NCAA reserves the right to overrule principals' decisions. The NCAA's modest response followed meetings with national education groups, including AASA. The Minnesota Association of School Administrators has submitted to AASA for consideration a resolution that states it is not the NCAA's role to dictate course content to high schools.

The U.S. Department of Justice also has challenged the NCAA for automatically rejecting courses involving special education services. Some students who had attained acceptable college entrance test scores despite their disability were not allowed to participate as freshmen because they had taken high school courses involving special education assistance. The NCAA argued in several court cases that it does not have to follow the Americans with Disabilities Act. After months of…. [read more]

Pregnant Athletes Identification Case Study

In the eyes of a characteristically virtuous person, the action would not be wise since she is putting herself and the fetus at risk and she is being somewhat reckless and short-sighted. The virtuous person would thus not show appreciation for this decision because the risks outweigh the benefits.


The wisest, most-ethical option would be for Fantasia to inform the members of the team and the Syracuse athletics department. Though this may lead to negative consequences, it still feels like the best and wisest option. This option would enable Fantasia's team members to help…. [read more]
